These stunning seaside venues are just a few hours’ drive away!

What happens when a mermaid at heart gets married? She plans a beach wedding, of course! Beach weddings are incredibly popular with good reason: The sun, waves, and the sand provide an effortlessly beautiful backdrop for you to recite your vows, after all. Imagine yourself in a breezy white frock, hem blowing in the wind as you walk barefoot on the sand towards the next stage in your life.

There’s something so warm and intimate about a seaside wedding—they have a naturally carefree vibe, and its paradise-like setting makes it a perfect and memorable getaway for you and your guests for the weekend! Still, not everyone has the time nor the budget to whisk themselves and their entire wedding party away to an island. Whether you’re planning something beachy yet convenient for your guests or you don’t have an entire weekend available, why not consider a nearby beach wedding venue? Your guests can easily make the drive to and from while still appreciating its knockout surroundings.

A three-hour drive from Manila, Camaya Coast is a premier beach and leisure resort along the shoreline of Mariveles, the southernmost tip of Bataan.

A seaside residential community, the Kawayan Cove is a 68-hectare community, with its own green and sprawling communal spaces apart from its beach amenities. Its dreamy and romantic location allows for a classic and polished wedding even by the beach.
