DISCLAIMER: It is not my intention to demean the place. I just want to share the bad experience we had on Good Friday of 2017 when we decided to pick Laki Beach in Mariveles Bataan as the place to spend one night for the long Holy Week Holiday. This could be an isolated place due to the nature of the holoday but this was what happened anyways.
We decided not to go with the main exodus Tuesday and Wednesday nights so we decided to take the trip to Bataan at around 2am Friday. We left 5- Star Cubao Terminal via their affiliate bus company Bataan Transit at around 3:00 am. We were #laki we were able to board the bus without the long lines and got to Mariveles at around 7:00 am. So easy! Had a quick breakfast in town. Thank God there is Jolibee in Mariveles town. We were on board a tricycle (75 php per tricycle) and got to Brgy Porto in no time.
About Laki Beach
Laki beach is a beach-in-a-cove located in Mariveles Bataan which is roughly 4 hrs by land from Manila and 30 minutes by boat from Brgy Porto Mariveles. It is a white sand beach with fine sand the length similar to that of Anawangin Cove in Zambales. Since it is a cove, access to the beach is only via boat. The beach is pristine with very clear water. It has the same vibe of that of Puting Buhangin in Pagbilao Quezon so I actually call it "Little Puting Buhangin".
