The new Kaybiang Tunnel in Maragondon, Cavite

If it was not the headline in Philippine Daily Inquirer in 2013 I would not known Kaybiang Tunnel.  I was hooked reading the article that tackled about the opening of the 300-meter tunnel, part of the 6-kilometer road that connects Ternate to Nasugbu, Batangas. Quite impressive right?

Kaybiang Tunnel shorten time trip for at least one hour

We were on our way to the hilly mountain of Ternate for a beach getaway in Katungkulan Beach Resort (former Boracay de Cavite) when my hubby saw the sign “To Kaybiang Tunnel.”  It drew the adrenaline rush while I tell them what this tunnel is all about. I was wishing we could drop by and see the tunnel but we were on our way to the marine camp.

Unfortunately, Katungkulan Beach Resort was temporarily closed by morning because of graduation ceremony.  We can’t wait for 1 pm opening so we opted to go to Nasugbu instead. There were bikers at the entrance gate mentioned about Patungan Beach Resort in Maragondon. With little instructions on how to go there, we hastily head off to the said resort excitedly. And what thrilled me more, we will pass by the new Kaybiang Tunnel.  Yehey!

tourists flock at the new tunnel on the way to Nasugbu

Kaybiang Tunnel is the new Ternate-Nasugbu Road in Maragondon, Cavite. Currently, it is now the country’s longest underground tunnel.  President Aquino was impressed of this new project which will cut travel time to the resorts of Nasugbu by at least an hour and will further boost tourism in Cavite and Batangas.

When we reached the tunnel there were several vehicles parked beside the main highway. There were lots of people busy taking pictures while the others went up through the stone ladder and walked around. There was a grotto of Virgin Mary on top which is probably the reason why people were going up. We didn’t go there; we just walked a little and have some decent shots.

inside the tunnel

When we passed by inside the tunnel, my hubby took fun in blowing the horn loudly and we were all screaming like a mad dog!  What a fun way doing this crazy thing! Hahaha!

And soon a picturesque sea view of Nasugbu, Batangas astonished us all.  Here is the picture that will blow your stress away!

enjoy the picturesque sea view

 

We parked our van beside the road and hopped out.  And what’s best thing to do is of course, a happy photo shoot! The vast expanse of the blue sea was so spectacular to watch for. Fort of Corregidor and Caraballo Islands can be seen from a distant.

Soon we were on our way to Patungan Beach Resort down to Maragondon, still part of Cavite.

 In getting there through Public Transportation:

Take a bus ride going to Ternate town through Saulog Bus in Coastal Mall along NAIA Road. Then board a tricycle, maximum of 3 passengers and tell the driver to drop you to the tunnel (P75/head). Since there’s no public transportation here, tell the driver to wait for you and head back to the terminal (fare-P75 to P100/head).
