Offshore to the southwest is the Maricaban Strait and to the south is Maricaban Island, Verde Island Passage and Mindoro Island.

Today
The port of Batangas is used by ships and ferry boats bound for nearby Mindoro Island. Batangas Bay is a popular dive spot with many reefs and sites for divers. There are several known shipwrecks. One is a capsized barge (identity unknown) in 15-50' at 'Twin Rocks' the other is a ferry sunk postwar.
