Random Clicks: Marines Beach Resort, Ternate, Cavite


Who would have thought that hidden behind the tall camp fence and heavily guarded perimeter is a beach?! Not just a beach, but an actual resort wherein you and your family and friends can enjoy the crystal blue water and white sand. The Marines Beach Resort or Boracay de Cavite is located at Ternate, Cavite, 2 to 2 1/2 hours away from Manila. At 100 pesos entrance fee and 350 pesos cottage fee, you get to experience the beach at its best. The resort is open everyday except during Balikatan Exercises of the US and Philippine Marines.

Here is how you get there...

I recommend you arrive at the beach at 6AM. You will not be able to see the sunrise because the beach is facing the west but that means you will be able to see the gorgeous sunset.



 The resort's simplicity and the clear and shallow water are enough for you to forget about the time.


Don't expect grand cottages, banana boats or jet ski. A cottage made of bamboo is enough to give you shade and to enjoy the beach.


I suggest you bring goggles because the shallow water is perfect if you want to snorkel. It was low tide when we went there yesterday. Fishing is prohibited in the area.


Behind that wall is Caylabne Bay Beach Resort which is also famous for its white sand beach, hotels and other recreational facilities.


It was windy when we went there so  you don't get to feel the sun on your skin. But, don't forget to put on a sun block and lip balm just to be sure you don't get sun burn.


The island from afar is the famous Corregidor Island in Bataan. It is a 45-minute boat ride from the camp.

    1. Yes they are. But you have to go there personally to make a reservation. Their room rate is Php750 for overnight stay, that's good for a family of 4 to 5.

    1. Go to Lawton and then ride an FX or bus going to Naic, Cavite. From there, ride a jeep or bus going to Maragondon. Hire a jeep or tricyle going to the Marines Beach, it is a private road so there are no public transporations available. Have a safe trip!

    1. Yes, they do pero you still have to go there personally to make a reservation. They don't have a telephone line. Open sya everyday except during Balikatan Exercises.

    1. Super safe, you're surrounded by Marines! Maliwanag sa camp pero sa street going there ay madilim. I suggest you go there before 5PM kasi medyo steep and may mga sharp curves ang road.
