Boracay de Cavite - Marine Base Beach Resort of Ternate, Cavite

|| DATE:

Security while having fun on the beach. That's how I would describe my experience in Boracay de Cavite Beach Resort which is also called as Marine Base Beach Resort. Yes, you read it right. Boracay de Cavite Beach Resort is situated inside a Philippine Marine Base found in Ternate, Cavite. So expect to see trainees and people in uniform while you are in the area. Having said that, you are guaranteed that this place is safe. So just enjoy!

How to get there?
From Baclaran, take a Saulog bus or a mini bus going to Ternate, Cavite. You'll be spending 85 Php if you take an AC bus and 70 Php for riding a mini bus. This will be a long drive so just charge yourself up before the actual swim. An estimate of 2 to 2 1/2 hours of traveling time before you reach Ternate bus terminal. From the bus terminal, you need to hire a jeepney because there are no public transportations available going to Boracay de Cavite. A 22 seater jeepney can be hired for 2,000 Php - 3,000 Php. This price is already round trip and may vary depending on how good you are in barking. So goodluck! As for those who'll be travelling in private vehicle, take the Coastal Road and go straight to Cavitex. Prepare 24 Php for the Coastal toll fee and 65 Php for the Cavitex toll fee. From Noveleta Exit, drive all the way going to Ternate. Before you reach Ternate, you'll be passing by the towns of Tanza and Naic. Note: Monitor your gas tank gauge because the most accessible gas station to Marine Base is in the city proper of Ternate. You'll know you're in the right direction if you got to see the jump off point of Mt Pico de Loro, Puerto Azul and Caylabne Bay Resort. Just drive until you reach the Main Gate of the Marine Base (which is hard to miss).

Main Gate of Marine Base
From the Main Gate, prepare your entrance fee. 100 Php is charge for a day swim and 200 Php for an overnight stay.  For those who'll be staying overnight, rooms (700 Php) and cottages (350 - 450 Php) are available in the beach side but if you want to cut from these fees you may bring your own tent and just set-up a camp. There's also a pay parking there - Motorcycle: 10 Php (day) / 20 Php (night), Car: 50 Php (day) / 100 Php (night). You need to go back again to your vehicle after paying all those fees because the beach part of this camp is still 2-3 kilometers away from the Main Gate.

Computing our fees :]
As we reach the beach area of Marine Base, I noticed the creamy (not white) and fine texture of its sand. And thought to myself that maybe it is one of the factor why this place is called, the Boracay of Cavite - Just maybe. The area is amazing. Never thought that Cavite has this kind of beach. Aside from the fine sand, it is surrounded by tall stone walls with waves splashing on it (like the one I see in the movies). Most importantly, the area and the water of Boracay de Cavite is clean.

Nice sand and calm water
We brought our own tent

Aside from the tent, we also rented a hut
It is also recommendable for family outings and reunions. Kids will definitely enjoy Boracay de Cavite because the water level of this beach doesn't change drastically. So, kids and teens can enjoy their swim for as long as they know their limits.

Swimming time!
Visitors can also play beach volleyball. There is a dedicated place for this sport in the mid part of the area and I believe it is for free of use. Just bring your own ball. It is also ideal for other games and team building activities provided that it has a wide area to roam around.

Playball!

A Sari-Sari store is also available in the area. So if you forgot to bring chips and toiletries, you can buy things there. The comfort room is OK. All covered up and there's no problem with the water supply.

Look how beautiful this place is...

There's not so much amenities in Boracay de Cavite provided that it is a Marine base after all, but I truly enjoyed my visit there. The water and the view is enough for me to say that others should also stop by Boracay de Cavite - Marine Base Beach Resort.

Pack up! EOD... aw (me and my girlfriend)
Before we left Boracay de Cavite - Marine Base Beach Resort...
Breakdown of Expense:
AC Bus (Baclaran to Ternate, round trip) - 170 Php
Jeepney Rental (Ternate to Marine Base, round trip) - 2,000 Php (good for 22 people)
Entrance Fee - 100 Php
Parking Fee - 50 Php (divided by number of people)
Cottage - 450 Php (divided by number of people)
Food - **.** Php


Update!!! (March 3, 2014)

from Ehrm.Bas (Thank you for giving me and my other readers an update! =])

Some were asking for contact numbers, or how you can make reservations.

The answer is they don't entertain reservations in the Ternate Marine Base, and they don't have a landline that they'll give away. However if you have a party of 20 or so people, you can make reservations by going to Marine Barracks Rudiardo Brown (Marine Base Manila) in Fort Bonifacio, Makati. Ask the MP guarding the gate where MC7 is. That is where you can make reservations (you have to pay there also), and they'll be the ones who will contact the personnel in Marine Barracks Gregorio Lim in Ternate.

And if anyone wants to ask the "is it still open to the public" question in year 2015 or 2016, just go to the Marine Barracks in The Fort described above and ask the personnel there.

Some were asking if they will still be allowed to enter the premises if they leave Manila at night.

The gate of Marine Barracks Gregorio Lim is only open from 5AM to 10PM, daily. The MP won't let you in outside those hours. Make sure you have a reliable vehicle if going there alone as there are no street lights in the road going up, and almost no settlements - though the road is very nice.

Additional information:

  • There are two stores, and one of them accepts cooking service, also from 5AM to 10PM, for a modest fee.
  • Signal on Smart is erratic, at best you'll get 2 bars of 3G signal, then sometimes you get dropped to GPRS or 2G.
  • Signal on Globe while on the beach front is awesome. I was consistently getting HSPA/HSPA+ signals while in there and encountered no problems uploading 3MB photos.

BORACAY DE CAVITE IS CLOSED UNTIL MAY 16,2014

  1. I've never been in this part of our province and I've been eying to visit this beach last Summer but a major drawback here is you should a private vehicle if you want to visit it since there are really no public vehicles that goes directly to the beach.
    Thanks for sharing part of Cavite.

    1. it's my pleasure. Btw, I am also a Caviteño. Cheers! I grew up in Bacoor, Cavite. However, I am now currently residing in Manila since it is more convenient going to my work in terms of commuting.

      And I agree with you regarding the drawback of this beach resort. Lets just hope that someday public transportation will route on this part of Cavite so other people would be able see the hidden spots of the area like Boracay de Cavite.

    1. Mga 1 1/2 to 2 hours of drive pa po. Ok naman po yung daan, malaki po at di ganoong katarik pero delikado lang siya kapag gabi since walang street lights sa ilang parts ng daan.

  20. hi geejay. Does the beach really has natural white sand? Are you sure the resort is available for overnight stay? Until what time? The cost of room is P700, right? Are there many rooms to be rent? Sorry for many questions. Thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I considered the sand of Boracay de Cavite as creamy rather than white. The price of the room stated above was based on our visit last year and yes, they allow overnight stay here.

  37. Almost 50 questions asking the author for more details about the resort, yet exactly zero came back to the site to thank the author after they went there? Come on people!

    Sir, thank you so much for posting this. It was one of the best impromptu trips we've been to! The place is absolutely awesome, and easy to find too.

    There were a few questions that we're asked by some commenters, and I'll try to answer some as my way of saying thanks to your blog (might be cool if you can edit this blog entry and update it with some of the new information here - so new visitors will not need to browse thru 80 comments before seeing the updated info):

    ---

    A few people asked if the place is still open to the public, and whether it's open on weekends; the answer to both questions is Yes. We went there on a Sunday, March 2nd, 2014. Here's a photo of our O.R. with the date on it.

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=272953772860306&l=425d50f251

    To those unfamiliar with the place who will be driving there, you can find the place using these coordinates: 14°15'54"N 120°37'39"E

    If you prefer using Google Maps, this is the link that points directly to the place: https://goo.gl/maps/rmqra

    We drove there using Waze as guide, a free GPS app on iOS and Android that has turn-by-turn navigation. The farthest I've driven in that part of town is Kawit, and I never got lost or missed a turn using Waze.

    The individual shower stalls inside the public bathroom has no doors, LOL. There were a few other people waiting to use the crapper, which has a door, but I didn't feel like waiting, so I just stripped down to wash the sand from my arse without a care in the world. :)

    2. Nagsearch po kasi ako ng page nila sa facebook. Nakalagay po closed sila ng april 1-17 pero 2013 pa naman un. Kaso baka po maulit un ngayong april? Pasensya na po sa abala sir geejay :)

      Delete
    3. ahhh yah tama yun. pero nag announce sila sa FB page nila na mag coclose sila due to operational commitment. Ngayon, parang wala pa naman silang nilalabas na announcement. :)

  55. Hi GeeJay and Garnet Albesa,

    Here's my input about our trip,

    MARCH 29, 2014 SATURDAY

    1. ENTRANCE FEE: PHP 100
    2. PARKING FARE: PHP 50
    3. TENT: PHP 450 (Since there are NO ROOMS/COTTAGES available, we rented a tent and i think it's good to feel the ambiance! :)
    4. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS (If you want to reserve, please refer to ERHM.BAS INFO)
    5. THE PLACE IS CONTINUALLY UPDATING... KUDOS!
    6. NO CONTACT NUMBER.
    7. Having your own car is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
    8. BE RESPONSIBLE WITH YOUR TRASHESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.... It's really irritating when you see a lot of trashes everywhere... some people are so MAKULIIIIIIITTTTTT!
    9. SARI-SARI STORES TO ACCOMMODATE THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE.
    10. IT'S OUR SECOND TIME TO VISIT HERE.
    11. OVERNIGHT STAY: PHP 200 (IF I AM STILL RIGHT!)
    12. From 10pm to 6am, the visitors are NOT ALLOWED to leave the place/base because there are no street lights along the road. BE CAREFUL!

    I hope this information would be helpful to everyone and PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF OUR ACTIONS TO PRESERVE AND RESPECT THE PLACE.

    There are SOME NOT SO GOOD THINGS TO SEE IN THE PLACE, IT'S BETTER FOR YOU GUYS TO SEE THEM FOR YOURSELF, DON'T JUDGE OR GIVE NEGATIVE COMMENTS... AS I HAVE SAID: THEY ARE "STILL" UPDATING THE PLACE, SO GIVE THEM TIME. AND BESIDES, IT IS BEING RUN BY ALL MARINE GUYS!

    Anyway, have fun and enjoy the place. INGATS!

    Thanks geejay! again, love your blog <3 <3 <3

    I will try to do an overnight stay in this place. ciao!

    1. You can go here anytime. But recommendable time is in the morning. As early as 5am is ok. There are no street lights on the road so going here or taking the road at night is considered dangerous

  57. We're planning to go there po sana dalawa lang po kami then ssakay kami ng saulog bus sa lawton to ternate. I wonder lang po saan po kami exact sa ternate bababa? And another thing po pagkababa namin dun kailngan po tlaga mag arkila kami mg kahit n anong vehicle po mkpunta lang dun sa main gate nila? Wala po bang kahit na ano like tricycle po ganon? Kase po dalawa lang kami po so jeep is not a good idea for us :( is there any option po ba?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sa mismong Terminal ng Ternate kayo bababa at doon na available yung mga jeepneys na pwedeng rentahan. Sorry pero jeepneys lang ang "alam ko" na pwedeng rentahan papunta doon. Malayo layo pa kasi ito and walang public transportation ang dumadaan pa doon.

  68. Hi Gee! Finally!.. me and my Team went to Boracay de Cavite last Saturday April 12, 2014. We rented a jeepney about 22 people. We travel from 6:30 PM we arrived there 9:30 PM(we were stucked up in a very heavy traffic at Roxas Blvd). I know its not advisable to travel at night because there was no streetlights. But we made it, this blog really helps me what to expect. I enjoyed traveling going there(my team was already scared; they are thinking about the movie "Wrong Turn" hahaha). The place was so relaxing, the water was clear and clean, in fact you can see some fishes.People went there to enjoy the white beach. You have to be a cowboy and cowgirl when you will stay overnight there. We rented a cottage for Php 700 good for 24hrs. There was no outlet, we brought a big sound system and rice cooker we wasn't able to use it. The stay there was so much fun! Except for the Comfort room its really not good to see; there is no water from 10pm-5am so imagine the people are using it without water. I think traveling there with your own vehicle would take 2 hours. Thanks for this blog Gee! looking for the new places you will promote. God Bless!...

  74. Hello, share ko na lang din experience ko para naman sa mga gusto maexperience ang place na ito at way ko na rin para mag Thank you kay Mr Blogger Geejay at super fun ang bonding namin ng mga highschool friends ko :)

    Since marami ng nagpost about sa place, do's and dont's and what to expect, share ko na lang about sa pagpapreserve if you are here in Manila. Sa eagerness kong no hassle pagdating dun, meaning may room na agad (kasi i know na super dami pag Sunday), I followed ERHM.BAS INFO about gong to Marine Barracks sa Fort Bonifacio. Unfortunately, di ako nakapagpareserve kasi they require to at least request 2 weeks prior sa date ng outing. E nagpunta ako 2 days prior, heheheh. Then, they will ask to write a letter (waiver, they will instruct you how to). When you submit the waiver, dapat may kasamang mga biodata or resume ng mga kasama mo.. Then yung payment at least 3 days prior ng outing mo mabayaran. Need kasi daw nila magpaapprove sa head kaya medyo tedious. Yun lang, kaya ang ending maaga na lang kami nagpunta dun.:) Sulit naman, keri na kahit walang rooms, nagdala na lang din kami ng mga tents.

    Thanks again!

  77. thank you for this very helpful and informative blog sir geejay :) . ask ko lang po, ive been there kase 3 years ago around april. we had a great overnight stay because we were the only guests that time as in solong solo namin buong beach but it got crowded around noon though. my question is, is it really crowded nowadays based from the comments above even during overnight stays?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess the place is getting known now that's why there were feedback related to the area being crowded. Or just simply because it is just summer and Cavite is very accessible in the Metro.

    1. Well, im not good at this (boosting on morale) but all I can say is just look at the number of comment this blog post has and the feedback of their visit. With that, I'll still let you decide whether to continue on visiting Boracay de Cavite or not.

      Delete
  79. Hi Geejay! I went thru all the comments in your very informative blog and I found it so helpful. My question is, if ever you are not able to place reservation, would it be best to go there as early as possible, say 6am to get a cottage? We are planning to go there this weekend. We are a family of 6. Thanks!

    1. Since its summer, there is a big chance that this place will be crowded so its best to be there as early as possible. 6 am is fine i guess.
