Cavite: virgin white beaches, epic landscapes, and pockets of historical novelties. You probably don’t know it but this amazing Philippine province has it all. The Department of Tourism of Cavite and Xplorra teamed up to give you The online Cavite guide you need to visit.
CaviteTourism.com is the newly launched website that shows you everything you may need to know about Cavite AND MORE. No ads, no commercials, no detours to third-party booking websites. Easy peasy and so so so accessible.
I simply adore CaviteTourism.com’s beautiful layout and images. Definitely not your old school, clunky, and super not optimized government website. The website itself, though very pretty, looks organized and intuitive. Modern and hip, its what most Philippine tourism websites lack.
Traveling to Cavite
While Cavite situates so close to Manila, this glorious province caters to different spots that will definitely overwhelm you. Only 30 minutes to 2 hours of travel from Manila takes you to a new adventure. Of course, you can effortlessly explore the province with your family or barkada by car or commute.
Some of the well kept secret spots in Cavite lies in its dramatic ruins, secret tunnels, and hidden chambers. Many heritage sites pinning the twists and turns of world war, uprisings, and revolutions are also part of Cavite’s heroic history. The Mainland serves as a host to vast networks of underground tunnels interconnecting ancestral houses, mansions, Baroque churches, and governmental buildings. The towns of Kawit, Maragondon, Indang, Naic, and Noveleta attest to these, with a surplus of landmark haciendas, museums, and shrines dedicated to Filipino heroes Andres Bonifacio, Emilio Aguinaldo, and their allies. The start and core, of course, of the Filipino Freedom.
Because the already famous Tagaytay is a district in Cavite, you already know that the province is a prevalent vacation site. A majority of its attractions sit on the rim of a volcano, with scenic views of Taal Lake and the smaller Taal Volcano, the second most active volcano in the Philippines. Sights worth exploring are the 13-hectare Picnic Grove, the animal theme park and zoo Residence Inn. The amusement park Sky Ranch in the area features the tallest ferris wheel in the country, too.
World War II history buffs would be pleased to know that the Corregidor Island can be reached in an hour from Manila by ferry. This tadpole-shaped island houses WW2’s eyepiece to bomb shelters, artillery relics, and vine infested wrecks. All this amidst the monkey-ridden rainforest and a magnificent sweeping view of the Philippine Sea.
