Island cove (formerly Covelandia) - resort hotel and leisure park ideal for outings and party with family, friends and colleagues. Three pools with slides, restaurant, mini-zoo, facility for fishing, hotel, gym, floating restaurant.
1) Aguinaldo Shrine
The shrine is the ancestral home of Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the Republic of the Philippines. Philippine independence from Spain was proclaimed from a window of the home on June 12, 1898. The Philippine national anthem was also played (its lyrics still to be written in 1899) by a band on that date. The best thing about the shrine is that the tour guide will give you information regarding secret passage such as a tunnel to the church and emergency exit. Before when I went there, the tour guide even let me go to the fourth level and giving me a great view of Kawit and the coastal area of cavite.
2) St. Mary Magdalene's Church
This was built in 1624 and is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. St. Mary Magdelene is the patroness saint of Kawit. The religiosity of the Kawite?os is deeply manifested through their fiestas, caracol, processions, and most especially, the Maytinis Festival, a Christmas Eve event that has become a tourist attraction.
( 5minutes walk from the Aguinaldo Shrine)

The historical province of Cavite is very accessible from Manila. Public transport is available from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Buses going to Cavite load and unload passengers at Vito Cruz corner Harrizon St. FX taxis are parked a short distance away, in front of McDonald’s, beside Harrizon Plaza. These buses and taxis usually take the Roxas Blvd.-Coastal Road route going to Cavite City, passing Bacoor, Imus, Kawit, and Noveleta. Others are bound for Rosario, Naic or Tanza. There are mini buses going to Tagaytay or Trece Martires. These are found in Baclaran.
depending on the time of day , the prices go from 30 to 50 PHP for +/- 3km. So compared to a bus it's rather expencive. Although it 's an experience ...
Actually there is no particular shop that I am referring to. They are the higway vendors along Kawit and Noveleta Cavite. They are selling fresh oysters, mussels and king crab.
What to buy: Oysters
What to pay: less than P100 per kilogram of oyster
When you say Christmas sEASON in Kawit, It reminds me of GIFT GIVING, KIDS SINGING CHRISTMAS CAROLS, A WEL LIGHTED STREET, PLACE TO EAT PUTO BUMBONG (RICE SWEETS) AT THE KAWIT CHURCH, CREATING A MINI BETLEHEM IN THE ALTAR OF THE CHURCH AND MAYTINIS FETIVAL. A well-loved Caviteno tradition, the Maytinis is a dramatic retelling of St. Joseph's and the Virgin Mary's search in Bethlehem for a place to stay. They found not a room, of course, but a stable where Christ was eventually born.Much rejoicing erupts as the play ends, culminating in a lively parade down the streets of Kawit. Its a uniquely Filipino translation of this ancient biblical episode.
Kawit is waaaay to close to Manila. When you dive into the water, you most likely hit your head to something else before you feel water.
But still , there is a lot of fish swimming around....
