Local travel guide in the Philippines Tips
How To Get to Panoypoy Cove / How to Get to Hawla Beach?
from Manila, you can ride a Bataan Transit bus from the Five Star Terminal near the Araneta Center Cubao.
Hop on a bus heading to Mariveles and it will drop you off at their terminal in Brgy Poblacion. From the terminal, you can either take a jeep bound to Balon-Anito but it will not drop you off directly to the resort and you need to walk all the way to Claubel. It is more convenient to hire a tricycle from the terminal which can accommodate 4 persons in one ride for as low as Php100. Since tricycle is not easily accessible from the resort, you can ask the driver to pick you up in your desired time or better yet ask anyone from the resort to fix a scheduled ride for you.
