Summer in Quezon Province

Hondagua is a small village in Lopez located in southern part of Quezon Province commonly known by nearby towns for its small beach. Near the bay is a Philippine National Railway connecting Lopez and Calauag.

To get here, from Buendia take a bus bound to Lucena, then transfer to bus bound to Calauag or Tagkawayan. Get off at Lopez and take a tricycle going to Hondagua, then a short walk about 10 mins going to the beach area. If you don't want to take bus, an alternative is available. Take a train ride from PNR Buendia Station going to Bicol and get off at Hondagua Station. From there, its only few minutes walk going to the beach proper.

This place is usually visited by local and nearby town traveler during months of March to May and is always crowded during holy week which you'll find it difficult to get a place to stay as cottages were already booked and reserved in advance. If you're not able to avail a cottage, find a vacant place near the shore and just lay down a blanket.

There's a lot to do here to have fun. Other than swimming, you can also enjoy the view and watch the sunset. During the peak season, its very common to see travelers renting floating cottage with karaoke on board.
