Resorts are a dime a dozen nowadays. So many know of beaches and popular relaxation destinations in places like Kalibo, Bohol, and Palawan. It’s so difficult to decide where to go.
But did you know that a paradise-like location can practically be found just beside Metro Manila? A wonderful breathtaking getaway which is just a comfortable 1.5-hour drive from the busy metropolis.
This paradise is called, “Pico de Loro”.
Named after a nearby mountain with a peak shaped in the form of a parrot’s beak, this sprawling wonderland provides way more than anyone’s general idea of what one resort can offer. There is also a great deal of sights to behold that make you feel like you are nowhere near the bustling city from which you came from.
Pico de Loro Cove is the maiden residential community of Hamilo Coast. Nestled along a 1.5-kilometer stretch of white sand and calm blue waters, the 40-hectare community is a first glimpse into the future of Hamilo Coast as the premier sustainable beach resort town of the Philippines.
Last March 24, I was able to spend 2 days (an overnight stay) at Pico de Loro with my wife and a few good friends, enjoying the view and the place’s awesome attractions not to mention the wonderful food prepared by their very own chef.
Coincidentally, it was also our wedding anniversary… so what better way to spend this romantic occasion than to bask under the sun and enjoy everything that Pico de Loro has to offer.
