Binukbok View Point is located on the shores of a Philippine Marine Sanctuary. The place is perfect for beginner divers or recreational snorkelers since there are tons of fishes even along the shoreline.
Going to Binukbok View Point from Manila:
- Ride a bus going to Lemery Batangas (we rode a DLTB bus from Pasay)
- Get off at Xentro Mall Lemery (or at DLTB bus terminal in Lemery)
- Ride a tricycle going to Binukbok Parking, Brgy. Balite San Luis
- Boat from Binukbok View Point Resort will pick you up from Binukbok Parking
We were asked to contact the resort once we arrive at Lemery so they can send the boat to fetch us. Here’s our view while waiting for our boat:
After 15-20 mins of boatride, we arrived at the resort. We were welcomed warmly by the staff, guided to our table, and offered with welcome drinks.
We availed of their day tour package for 880 Php, which consists of:
- Round trip boat ride to the resort
- Environmental fee to the Marine Sanctuary
- Use of mask, snorkel, and life vest
- Use of table in a covered cottage
- Unlimited drinking water and coffee
They also offer overnight stay packages in a 3-person tent for 1,800 Php. You can check all the deals they’re offering in their website: http://www.binukbokviewpointresort.com.
The best part about Binukbok is the really close encounter with lots of fishes – it is a marine sanctuary after all.
They practice fish-feeding before that’s why fishes tend to flock over divers thinking that they will be fed. This practice was now stopped since it is not really good for the fishes in the sanctuary.
The corals and other marine creatures are also very much alive in Binukbok, it really is a great diving spot.
They don’t offer meals and cooked food – but you can bring raw fishes and meat and cook it in their kitchen, free of charge. There is also a nearby resort which sells halo-halo and other refreshments.
Another thing to look forward to when going to Binukbok is the sunset. The sun sets right in front of the resort which is a sight to behold.
