    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were invited for a tripping at Pico de Loro to check out the ongoing construction of condo units and the Beach & Country Club. Not to be confused with Mt. Pico de Loro,a favorite of mountaineers, the Pico de Loro we went to was one of the 13 coves of white sand beaches of Hamilo Coast,envisioned to be an exclusive premier residential coastal destination in Nasugbu,Batangas. It boasts of clear waters,fine white sand and lush greens. Future residents of this exclusive property can go to Metro Manila via ferry that will dock at the Seaside Port of SM Mall of Asia.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caleruega is a House of Prayer where groups, mostly students go for retreats or recollection. The Chapel of Transfiguration inside the compound is a favorite wedding site, and the mini-forest park and gardens is becoming a popular choice for pre-nup pictorials. Communing with God and nature at Caleruega will reinvigorate your soul and body.

    Terrazas de Punta Fuego

    by stamporama Written Apr 8, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This resort is actually for exclusive use of members but perhaps due to the global economic downturn, they've decided to open up to the public. As you enter the grounds, the road to the beach is lined with stylish and luxurious mansions with terrific views of the sea. These are private residences however and there are no public lodgings here; if you wish to spend the night nearby you'd have to go to another enclave 15 mins. further down the national road.

    The beach is clean, unrocky and with near-white sand. There are cabanas around the infinity pool as well as on the beachfront, a restaurant (though the food is not that great), locker and shower rooms.

    CLIMBING MOUNT BATULAO

    by SAILGAR Written May 7, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cool climate of Mt. Batulao is a pleasant escape from the tropics. The moment you alight from the bus (Erjohn Bus) at the gate of Evercrest Golf Course – the jumpoff – you will feel the same coolness felt by the visitors of Tagaytay. And this temperature will be with you all the way. Batulao is the only mountain in Batangas where you can wear jackets at high noon. Thanks for the cool wind of Tagaytay! The trail is characterized by rolling hills covered mostly by cogon grass. There is no tree cover throughout the climb. On sunny days, this paradoxical blending of heat and cold, on dramatic, sometimes steep landscapes, with forceful winds that make the cogon grass dance, forming beautiful waveforms across the slopes, earns for Batulao the distinction of being the most spectacular of the mountains in Batangas.

    At the peak, the rocky landscapes climax into beautiful formations. Set in the backdrop of the plains of Cavite and Batangas, the photos are excellent. Views include the peninsula of Calatagan (SE), the coastline of Nasugbu (W), Mt. Talamitam and Pico de Loro (WNW), the mountains of Maragondon, Cavite (N), the Tagaytay highlands (ENE), Taal Lake (E), behind it, Mt. Maculot (ESE), and the vast Balayan Bay (S). Here the breezes that menaced the assault are now a refreshment.

    Spiritual retreat / Wedding at Caleruega

    by marktqm Updated Jan 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caleruega is a Dominican-owned spiritual retreat center far from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in Brgy. Kaylaway in the highlands of Nasugbu, it has fantastic views of Mt. Batulao and the green rolling hills of Tuy and Nasugbu, Batangas. Its small chapel on the top of the hilly property is a favorite wedding venue. If you're a bride with a passion for the dramatic and romantic, start your wedding march from the fountain rotunda at the gate, hiking up a nice garden path for about a hundred meters, and arrive breathless (literally) to the chapel door which will be opened accompanied with the release of butterflies cunningly hidden by wedding coordinators in some corner somewhere. (That's what my sister did! Made good footage.) The groom and his crew have it easy; they simply wait at the altar.

    Camping & Team Building On "Holy Grounds"

    by cyndymc Updated Oct 17, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caleruega is not only known for hosting retreats and recolllecions. It also provides the venue where students/employees can camp on its rolling hills for team building. The panoramic view of Batulao Range, the beautiful lush greens and colorful flowers, the awesome skylight, and the quiet surroundings make Caleruega a perfect place.

    Beach!

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 16, 2008

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You're in Nasugbu so have a dip in the beach or have a henna tatoo or tan. How about Jet Ski or Parasail or Banana Boat. Snorkelling, Sciba Diving, etc. Ok I admit it's not Boracay or Palawan but still it's a beach so you can still do any beach activity here.

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 16, 2008

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chateau Royale Resort in the Upper Part of Nasugbu Town near the border of Cavite Province is a good area for group activities. In the Complex, they offer paintball for group fun and we did paint ball for the heck of it. You pay 300 pesos a game plus 200 pesos for 20 pieces of paint bullets. The Objective is to capture the enemy flag or annihilate the enemy enmasse! in this activity, my team won!

    Let's Go! War! Paintball is Fun! Positions! Get the Flag!

    Pico De Loro Cove

    by machomikemd Updated Nov 8, 2013

    Pico De Loro Cove is a members only Resort Community and Beachside Property along the Hamilo Coast of Nasugbu Batangas. it is the farthest Beach Resort from Nasugbu town along the winding and zig zag mountain roads but is nearest to Manila as the newly opened Mount Pico De Loro Mountain Tunnel from Cavite Province to Nasugbu is now opened.

    The Resort features various high rise condominiums and apartelles for club members who bought the rooms there and their members and guests. It also has the Pico De Loro Hotel for guests and non-members allowed to enter this exclusive enclave plus a large man made lagoon, a convention center, fishing and sailing activities, a multi purpose hall and game room and assorted bars and restaurants and spa.

    the complex is owned and managed by the SM prime companies of the SM Group, which is the largest Chain of Malls in the Philippines.

    Pico De Loro Beach Front

    by machomikemd Written Nov 8, 2013

    The Main Attraction of the Pico De Loro Complex is the Beach in One of the 13 coves of the Hamilo Coast of Nasugbu Town and it's reason for being. the beach is a large u shaped area protected at both sides by the hilly and rocky coves and the beach is crystal clear and the waves are not strong, although like in other areas of Nasugbu, the sands here are rough and not powdery and the color is golden, not white. If you want to experience powdery white sands, you have to go to boracay or cebu or palwan for it.

    there are life guards at the beach and it is open for swimmers from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm everyday

    there are beach beds, huts and the reef bar and grill and brisa bar where you can order food and drinks too.

    Golden Sands of Pico De Loro

    by machomikemd Written Nov 8, 2013

    like what i've said, the beaches are clear and there are no strong waves or rip tides here but the sand quality is not as great as other philippine beaches, so if you have time to go to other Philippine Beaches, then go there instead of here.
