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.
A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. Lao Tzu
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware. Martin Buber
Pulutan (from the Filipino word pulutin which literally means "something that is picked up") is a term roughly analogous to the English term "finger food". Originally, it was a snack accompanied with liquor or beer but has found its way into Philippine cuisine as appetizers or, in some cases, main dishes, as in the case of sisig.

To its north across the Luzon Strait lies Taiwan. West across the South China Sea sits Vietnam. The Sulu Sea to the southwest lies between the country and the island of Borneo, and to the south the Celebes Sea separates it from other islands of Indonesia. It is bounded on the east by the Philippine Sea.
