BORACAY DE CAVITE - Marine Base (Katungkulan) Beach Resort in Ternate, Cavite

Boracay de Cavite - Marine Base Katungkulan Beach Resort in Ternate Cavite
Beaches Near Manila: Boracay de Cavite

Boracay de Cavite (as most people would call it) is a small cove located inside Gregorio Lim Marine Base in Calumpang Ternate, Cavite. Officially named Katungkulan Beach Resort, it is one of the nicest beaches near Manila featuring a beach that has gray-ish sand (not white, though in photos it would look like white to off-white) that is so fine and soft to the feet. One of the most striking features of Boracay de Cavite is the towering stone wall on one side of the cove perfect for your "selfie" and "cam-whoring" moments. The water is not turquoise blue, but its clean. Corregidor Island and the Mariveles mountain range in Bataan are also visible from the cove. Isn't awesome?

Boracay de Cavite - Marine Base Katungkulan Beach Resort in Ternate Cavite

Being a CaviteƱo, I never thought that we could still find this kind of beach in Cavite. Located just 50 kilometers away from our house in City of Imus, this trip is just a "quick summer getaway" with my brother, aunts and pamangkins. From our home, we drove for about 1.5 hours all the way to Ternate Cavite. At the gate, we paid 100 pesos each as entrance fee for day swimming.

Since Boracay de Cavite is still about 2-3 kilometers away from the gate of the Marine Base, we got back to our car and drove towards the cove. Upon arrival at the beach resort's gate, we parked our car at the designated parking area.

As a beach near Metro Manila, the resort can be crowded to overcrowded during summer, holy week, weekends and long weekends. Since it's summer and also a weekend when we went there, I was not surprised that the the resort is so crowded. In fact, there were no available cottages - they were all taken. Good thing we brought our own foldable table and just settled at one side of the beach.

We brought my pet dogs, Fiona and Jao with us. This trip actually came out because I want to celebrate my Princess Fiona's recovery from her sickness. Thank God she's now walking again after more than 1 month of being paralyzed. Since its their first time to go on a beach, I let them walk, run and play on the sand. They enjoyed and had so much fun!

I really didn't expect a "Boracay-like" beach. I was just looking for nice beach in Cavite for a quick swim and to bond with my family. I enjoyed this day with my pets, my brother and some relatives. A "once in a blue moon" activity that I think, we should do more often.

joshua121595 said...

Magkocommute to here from Manila?, or even Imus to here?, nope . I don't think so,maybe if you got a private car from ternate then drive your way there then yes,but better be if you rent a car or have a private vehicle with thee from start to there for comfort too, while I was driving on my way there, public transportion is only up to the municipality of ternate of what I can remember, the rest after that, the road as almost clean and you can't see any other kinds of public transport vehicles but only private vehicles like cars, and motorcycles. Plus the roads a bit steep. Our ford everest could go up and down the roads on its way there easily, but a van fully loaded(like one of our fellow friends who has one goin there with us) or a vehicle with a bit of a low pushing power and with a heavy load carrying, would find it hard or might not even be able to travell to there to go on the inclines of the roads on its way to there. I mean, the roads are like on the top/side of mountains alright, so way up and way down is steepy really, but the roads are nice, they are all paved. Its like the roads too on your way to Bicol (Zigzag Road/Bitukang Manok road/Quezon National Park), napakasteep, but not at that height of steep in there, but almost like it. So I also recommend thee to have/bring more powerful cars/vehicles especially when carrying huge load like bags/boxes,people etc
