Taal Volcano Alert Level 2 | Is it safe to visit Talisay Resorts?

Taal Volcano's possible eruption has been in the news for weeks now and if you're going to listen to Kuya Kim Atienza, you'll think it will erupt yesterday. Now, the question is this: Is it still safe to visit Resorts in Talisay, Batangas?

Alert Level 2 was raised for Taal Volcano which means a voluntary evacuation is in place. There were already 77 persons evacuated from Taal Volcano Island. Once the Alert Level 3 is raised, then that's another story. It means a probable eruption and a forced evacuation will be implemented.

There are quite a number of resorts in Talisay, Batangas and one of most popular is the Club Balai Isabel. I saw in the news yesterday night that because of the report about Taal Volcano possible eruption, there's a huge decline in number of visitors to Club Balai Isabel.

I heard the resort manager appealing for help to promote tourism in Talisay, Batangas. That it is safe to visit Club Balai Isabel. Which is actually true. With Alert Level 2, there is no immininent danger if you are planning to visit Club Balai Isabel and nearby Talisay Batangas Resorts. But check out the official Club Balai Isabel website ( and there's not even a news, campaign or a note to tell visitors that it is safe to visit their resort!

Good luck naman sa inyo, Club Balai Isabel!

  1. This is a very hot summer.

    I wouldn't visit Talisay Beach Resorts just because of the current situation of the Taal Volcano, but I'd do so for fear of excessive sun burn.

    But I would consider going to nearby Tagaytay to escape the heat.

    Here's hoping that the Taal situation will not worsen because if it does, going to Tagaytay for our summer outing will also be not suitable.
