Port of Batangas


Batangas Port is the center of transportation of goods produced in the hinterland, primarily in Batangas province and serves as the strategic trading point for all industries in the CALABARZON area. Agricultural products, copra, cement, logs, minerals, completely built units (CBUs) and other general cargo dominate the traffic while container traffic is continuously growing.

The completed Batangas Port Development Project (BPDP) Phase I and Phase II will serve the Mindoro island and other islands within the economic range but will respond to the demand of burgeoning trade and commerce resulting from the regional developments. The port expected to complement the Port of Manila.

Batangas Port has a total land area of 150 hectares.

Location: The Baseport of PMO-Batangas is located 110 km. from Metro Manila. Latitude 130 45.2’ N, longitude 1210 06.6’ E on the northeast section of Batangas Bay along the southwestern part of Luzon. The port is in Barangay Sta. Clara, Batangas City, about 2 kilometers from the city proper and approximately 120 kilometers south of Metro Manila.

Port Limits: Embraces all waters of Batangas extending seaward up to an imaginary line connecting Casador and Matoco Point.

Navigational Approach: From the south, between Motoco Pt. and Malajibomanok  Islands with an opening of 3 ½ miles, white flashing beacon on Malajibomanok Island Center, duration 0.3 seconds every 10 seconds visible within 8 miles in clear weather. Islands and point can be approached within ½ miles.

Land Access: National Road passing through Batangas City proper, Startollway connecting South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) to Manila and vice versa.

Sea Distance: (Batangas- Calapan) approximately 25.65 nautical miles
(Batangas- Puerto Galera) approximately 15.47 nautical miles
(Batangas- Manila) approximately 90.23nautical miles via North of Maricaban Island.

Entrance Channel/Turning Basin: Basin Area (32 hectares; initial water depth of -13m.). Batangas port may be approached safely from either direction paralleling its face. Batangas lighthouse is a 3-group green light flashing every 5 seconds duration.

Pilot Boarding Station: Batangas Bay: Latitude 130 44’ 30” N, Longitude 1210 01’ 12” E
Balayan Bay: Latitude 130 53’ 54.72” N, Longitude 1200 47’ 05.10” E
