Mahabang Buhangin Beach is located in the town of San Juan, Batangas. It is one of the prides of the town, attracting visitors near and far. The name of the beach is literally derived from its characteristic, "Mahabang Buhanging" which means a "long stretch of sand". The beach is very pristine and beautiful, featuring white sand, crystal blue water, and a living colony of corals.

The area is not fully developed yet, so it is advisable to bring your own tents, food, and water. People can witness the stunning beauty of the sunset. It’s very romantic! It is also recommended that you camp for the night, bond with your family and friends around a bonfire, and count the zillions  of stars while lying on the sand. The area offers a very refreshing and rejuvenating atmosphere which makes it ideal for relaxation. It is a perfect place for everyone who wants to ease their stress from the busy city life.
