The main feature of the cottage is the wide porch and balcony that steps directly onto Encenada beach. The beach itself is secluded, has good quality whitesand, and is quiet. There is one twin bedroom upstairs and two double bedrooms downstairs each with an additional bed. Each bedroom is fitted with a fan.
First you go to Batangas City by road, which takes about two hours from Manila by car or aircon coach. Then take a one-hour ferry ride to Puerto Galera. The caretaker will normally meet you when the ferry arrives. Or just take a jeepney (P200) or a motorbike-and-sidecar (P10). A private boat can also be organized to take you across from Batangas directly to your doorstep.
I still make sure to go, at least once every year, to a country where things cannot be taken for granted, and where there is either too much law and order or too little. Christopher Hitchens
“Everyone carries his own inch rule of taste, and amuses himself by applying it, triumphantly, wherever he travels. Henry Adams
For festive occasions, people band together and prepare more sophisticated dishes. Tables are often laden with expensive and labor-intensive treats requiring hours of preparation. In Filipino celebrations, lechón (also spelled litson) serves as the centerpiece of the dinner table. It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.

As a tropical oriental country it should come as no surprise there are many treats made from rice and coconuts. One often seen dessert is bibingka, a hot rice cake optionally topped with a pat of butter, slices of kesong puti (white cheese), itlog na maalat (salted duck eggs), and sometimes grated coconut. There are also glutinous rice sweets called biko made with sugar, butter, and coconut milk.
