Malvar is a 2nd class municipality in the Province of Batangas, Philippines. As of 2009, the population of Malvar was 41,270 and the total number of households was 8,678. The municipality was named after General Miguel Malvar, the last Filipino General to surrender to the American Government in the Philippines in 1902.

Located 68 kilometers south of Manila and easily accessible via the STAR Tollway. Malvar is bounded on the north by Tanauan City, on the east by Santo Tomas, Batangas on the south by Lipa City and on the west by Balete, Batangas.

With the continuous expansion of Metro Manila, the town is now conurbated with Manila, whose built-up area now reaches Lipa City.



Calejon Falls, a natural attraction consists of two major water falls and two smaller ones. One of the bigger falls is about 10 feet (3.0 m) high with a great volume of clear water gushing down to a shallow pool. The other one (also about 10 feet (3.0 m) high) resembles a bridal gown. One of the two smaller falls is shower-like, while the other one forms a series of small cascades. All the falls are located in an area of about 300 square meters.

Calejon Falls is located in Barangay San Gregorio, (formerly called Calejon). The spot is easily accessible via STAR Tollway Bulihan Exit. From Manila, take a bus bound for Batangas City or Lipa City then drop at town of Malvar. Jeepneys and tricycle service Barangay San Gregorio from the town proper. The 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) stretch of road is well-paved and smooth even for small cars. Upon reaching the area, a series of 300 concrete steps going down the river will have to be taken. Going back up is a challenge.

San Juan River, longest river in Batangas connecting Lipa and Tanauan and Sto Tomas is an old fashioned heat quencher for the locals of the town since in memorial in time, During Summer the Rivers famous point for picnics and pastime is fully booked. THus the river also serves as water sources for watering the vegetables near at the areas.small fish and crablets are also seen and wild fern are also pick up to serve as delicacies or food during meal time of the visitors of the river.

Sadly irresponsible people are polluting the river,people are trowing garbage at its creek or on the water, and even poultry and piggeries near the river is contaminating the natural habitat of its environment. Sadly the local government is not yet pushing the sanitary law against these environmental degradation,sooner or later those pollutant will kill the main river. Immigration from different provinces who had no houses and relatives to stay with is marking the river banks with their houses.

Local government should stop this kind of practices among immigrants, if not to impose a strict law against them sooner there will be no more rivers to swim with to enjoy ans specially its free of charge....

Another local venue that has recently emerged in the humble province of Malvar is the mango farm/events venue called Sa Manggahan.[1] Only 45 minutes away when coming from Alabang, it is located near the plant of C-Joist Concrete Ventures Group, Inc. This new events venue will cater to the local market where it can be rented out for various events such as wedding receptions, family reunions, camping grounds, or just a place where you can rest and relax during the weekend under the mango trees. Currently, very little is known about this establishment, as it is not yet fully operational. Residents and visitors alike have been astounded with this new development, together with a proposed horse race track beside it. Once these establishments are fully operational, it will definitely increase the number of visitors coming from Manila.
