Labangtaytay is located south of Esperanza, the coastline turns westward along a kilometer, straight to Poblacion. This headland provides shelter from the prevailing wind direction, and here a fishing harbour has survived since the early days.Talisay also marks the southern end of the coast. Beyond this point, the steep mountain ranges plunge directly into the sea-the first of the deep glacial fiords is just 2 kilometers away.

Labangtaytay fishing village offers spectacular views of the ocean and the northern part, which are often painted by the setting sun. There are several good walks in the area, ranging from a 15 minutes to Poblacion along with coastline.

Labangtaytay is the third largest barangay in Esperanza, with a total population of more than one thousand. Fishing is the main source of income of the people living in the area, blessed with white beach & crystal clear water specially during summer.


In Labangtaytay, the two main modes of transport are via motor-tricycles along the main road or by walking along the beaches. Pedicabs are also available for transport along the Beachfront Path. Other means of transportation include mountain bikes, quadbikes and motorbikes, all of which can be rented.

To explore around the island's coast, motorized bancas and sailing paraws are available for rent. These are outrigger canoes and are common sight in waters around the island. The sailing paraw is a narrow hulled boat with outriggers either side and with passengers sometimes seated on a trampoline platform between the outrigger supports. These are extremely fast off the wind, but can be unwieldy for inexperienced sailors.
