A little over two (2) hours drive from Manila, on the tip of the Calumpang Peninsula and on the southern mouth of beautiful Balayan Bay, majestically sits a luxurious haven, EAGLE POINT RESORT

The resort offers facilities to accommodate even those that do not dive. Comfort and privacy is what guests can expect with us. Sitting by the sea and surrounded by flowers and trees, the natural beauty will take hold of you. Many guests have said that it was like being transported to a far exotic island but still be conveniently close to Manila.

CLUBHOUSE & RESTAURANT

The Main CoreEAGLE POINT's centerpiece is the Main Core, consisting of the front office, the restaurant & bar, air-conditioned conference room, gift shop, game room and the kitchen. Its design is based on the Samoan Long House, where gatherings are held. The Main Core's interior is graced with a very high ceiling supported by thick Narra wooden beams and trusses. From its high vantage point, guests are treated with an overwhelming majestic view of the sea.

The restaurant can boast that we have the best food in the area, matching the quality of that of the five (5) star restaurants. Guests have a variety of choices from our menu. For our menu covers seafood dishes, continental and oriental as well as Filipino cuisine, guaranteed to delight your palette.

3 SWIMMING POOLS

Though, scuba diving is the main attraction, we do have alternate facilities for those of the family that are not divers. Our pools were built for that purpose. Carved into the cliff side, the pool area was built in 2 levels with the shallower pool for children above, surrounded by a boulder motif and waterfalls. The main pool located just below with similar motif feature is fronted with a huge sun deck overlooking the sea. On one side of the sun deck is the poolside bar. Connecting the upper pool with the lower poll is our 30ft waterslide. The water of the upper pool overflows unto the slide making it a slippery and exciting thrill for kids and adults can't help but giving it a try also. From the Main Core, kids can cross an arched bridge that goes over the waterslide to the upper pool area. On the same level is the sandy playground with a child size Nipa hut on it.

Pools carved into the cliffsideAlso make sure, you try our reef (saltwater) pool. We have adapted a tamed though somewhat shy sea turtle named Charlene, who was raised in captivity. Unfortunately, she cannot survive in the wild. But because she grew up in a bathtub, she is now swimming in a 40' long by 20' wide and about 10' deep pool. You and your kids will be able to swim with her and Bugsy, our 12 pound grouper (Lapu-lapu) resident as well as other colorful fish. Imagine swimming in a very large aquarium.

DIVE SHOP and WATERSPORTS CENTER

Of course, there is nothing like swimming in the real thing. So, we do try to encourage you to experience the thrill of exploring another world. That is, the coral reef which fronts the whole resort. Snorkeling does not require much to view this miracle of CREATION. All you need is a mask with snorkel & fins (available at our dive shop), and lots of time to just float around. If you can't swim, request for a life jacket.

One of our guests' favorite snorkelling spot is Canyon Land, which is right infront of the restaurant. We suggest that you go to this spot when it is about low tide. Bring some old bread and feed the fish.

Now, if you've never tried scuba diving, our dive shop offers an introductory dive course. We encourage you to try it out. The experience going 20ft down, breathing fresh air underwater is something you will not forget.

Available to service you is our dive concession. SAFETY STOP DIVE SHOP, owned by Karen Gilman Quisumbing, has all the equipment that you'll need for scuba diving and snorkelling as well as the rental of the Waverunner & other watersport equipment. Safety is the prime concern that she emphasizes when serving our guests. Note of fact, equipment (especially mouthpieces) are sterilized after every use and then wrapped individually in plastic. Certification cards are required when any scuba equipment are rented out. Divers who have lost or just forgot their C card will have to be checked out by our resident dive master.

GIFT SHOP

Don't forget to drop by our GIFT SHOP concession owned by Elizabeth Asbury. Her shop has all the things you'll need from souvenirs, film, toys, candy to other personal items.

EAGLE POINT RESORT offer facilities to accommodate even those that do not dive.

GAME ROOM

Did we mention we have a gameroom? For those who like to play, we do have a billiard, Ping-Pong table and a dart board.

WALK-THRU AVIARY

For bird watchers, EAGLE POINT offers the largest walk-through aviary in Batangas. In this 3/4 acre enclosed netted area, the owner has collected numerous rare tropical birds that are indigenous and those from other parts of the Philippines. Great place for guests to take a quiet afternoon stroll.

BOAT RENTALS for Island Excursion / Diving

BancaIf you want to spend a day at a sandy beach, you can rent a boat (banca) to Sombrero Island, Layag-layag, Cemetery and Red Rock beaches (located on Maricaban Island). These destinations are about 15-20 minutes away by boat. We recommend you have a picnic on Red Rock beach which is the only one with picnic tables. These boats are independently owned and charged on a per-trip basis. To avoid burning a hole through your pockets, plan your trips wisely. We advice that you make your boat arrangements at our front desk..
