San Nicolas Ecotour (San Nicholas, Batangas) - It may be a while before we can safely visit Taal not just because of the pandemic but also because of the fact that the volcano can still very much erupt any time. Be as it may though, the San Nicolas Ecotour is known for its Lava Walk, a 280-step pathway built right over a trail of Taal Volcano’s hardened exotic black lava from its eruptions in the ’60s and ’70s. As well as, a stop at the 15th-century ruins of the original Taal Church.

Isla Verde and Verde Island Passage (Isla Verde, Batangas) - Isla Verde is a little rural island found between Batangas City and Puerto Galera, also known as Verde Island Passage. Famous as a dive site for professionals, it has been dubbed as “Washing Machine” and “Pinnacle (or Drop off)”. It’s such a remote place that divers who visit this little island need to bring their own food, gear, and even camping gear.
