Batangas is a dependable destination for impromptu weekend getaways. Given all its beachy options, it's only natural that it's top-of-mind when you feel like dropping everything for some fun in the sand.

Getting there takes about three hours on a good day. Here are a few of our picks for where to stay in Batangas, whether in the diving hotspot of Anilao or the laid-back beaches of Laiya.

Beach lovers would find a lot to like at La Luz—an intimate, no-fuss resort along the white-sand beach of Laiya in Batangas. After enjoying all the available water sports activities such as kayaking and snorkeling, you can just lie down on one of the beachfront beds for a relaxing massage.

Club Punta Fuego used to be a members-only resort, up until it opened its doors to the public in 2015. Since then, weekend warriors have been enjoying the club's double infinity pool which offers front-row seats to Batangas' beautiful sunset. Other exciting facilities at this luxurious beach resort include a nine-hole golf course, a 20-seater theater, and a water sports hub that offers kayaking, wakeboarding, and diving.

Aiyanar Beach and Dive Resort's infinity pool is perched high above the sea so it almost looks like it's extending to the horizon of Anilao's coast. One side of the two-part pool has a depth of 15 feet, which is an ideal spot to practice your skills in scuba diving and skindiving before heading out to Verde Island Passage—considered the "Center of the Center of the Marine Biodiversity of the World."

When it comes to wedding destinations, Club Balai Isabel is an old favorite because of its beautiful backdrop (Taal Lake), its own chapel within the compound, and a number of venue choices for either an indoor or outdoor ceremony. But just in case you're more interested in jumping around like a child than tying the knot, the resort opened its own inflatable water park in April, to the delight of both day-trippers and checked-in guests.

Unlike most resorts in Batangas, Pico Sands Hotel boasts a backdrop of verdant mountains and a view of a man-made lagoon. Guests have the option of riding a speedboat to a white-sand private cove called Santelmo and just spending the rest of the day lounging around the private beach or checking out the 45-minute eco-trail.

La Chevrerie, which translates to "The Goat's Place" in French, is owned by a foreign diver who once wished of living in a simple house by the beach where his pet goats can roam freely. Now, the luxurious resort is not only a diver's overnight respite but also a beach-lover's private sanctuary—thanks to its limited number of rooms (it only has 13). Relaxing massage treatments are also available for guests at the in-house La Brise Spa.
