Kwebang Lampas; Pagbilao Quezon

I always want to spend time at the sea, the serenity it brings is like a medicine to the soul. I normally search for an unexploited wonder where I can unite with nature without the usual hard partying which is common among the popular tourist’s attractions.

Quezon Province has a lot of beautiful wonders to offer. I searched the internet and convinced my friends to go to Kwebang Lampas for an overnight camping. We used a private car going to Pagbilao, Quezon. It took us 5 or 6 hours to get there.

How To Go There:

By Public Transport

Ride a bus en route to Lucena (either from Buendia, Kamias or Cubao) and get off at Lucena Grand Central Terminal. From the terminal there are vans and jeepneys en route to Pagbilao. All buses en route to Bicol will also pass the town of Pagbilao.

From the Lucena Grand Central Terminal
Take a jeep ride bound for Brgy. Polo for Php 35.00.
Tell the driver that you are going to Lukang Beach (Lukang Beach is the old name of Kwebang Lampas).
Once in Brgy Polo, you can hire tricycle going to the Kwebang Lampas Registration area.
Tricycle drivers are charging around Php 200-250.00 one way, to bring you to the registration area. From the registration area, you can either walk all the way to the beach or ride a boat for P20.00 Round Trip, after the boat ride you need to hike to the beach for 15-20 mins.

At the registration, you have to pay for entrance.
Php 160.00 for an overnight stay.
Php 20.00 If you are crossing the lake via boat, two-way.
Php 300.00 Tents for overnight rent. bring your own tent to save money.
Php 700.00 Tables for rent.

By Private Transport

From Manila take SLEX to its end at Calamba and follow the signs towards Batangas. You will see a fork road on the right a short distance after passing the entrance to the STAR expressway. The right fork goes to Lipa City and the left goes to San Pablo – take the left fork towards San Pablo.
