Like a parrot perched on a mountain, Pico de Loro or the Parrot’s Peak got its name. Known to be the highest point in Cavite, it’s a perfect spot to have your gaze on the beautiful beaches of Batangas. Well, that’s what the blogs say. If you know me, I’m not a very ‘mountain person.’ 🙂 So, instead of climbing, we went to the cove that is Pico de Loro to officially jumpstart summer.
A project by SM Land Inc., Hamilo Coast is an exclusive beach club, a residential condominium, hotel and many others. Really, I’m not a big SM fan but I think they did a pretty neat job on this one. I just hope that a few years down the road, the mountains would still look lush instead of disappointing, brown patches.
It was a 3+-hour drive from Alabang via the Tagaytay-Nasugbu route. Trust me, we started counting the kilometers at 48 so imagine our joy when we’re down to our last 8!
We’re here but not quite! 2 kms. more ‘til we reach the actual site.
Greeted by the Country Club – modern living with the mountains as backdrop! Owzzum.
Since it’s a sprawling estate, you can even ride the internal shuttle to roam around.
I guess waking up early is really not in me. So here we are, by the beach at 12nn.
That’s Gel who’s afraid of the sun. 🙂
Back in the day when I was 2 shades lighter. Hehe! 🙂
Hello boyfriend. :p

After being roasted in the sun, we opted to go to the Country Club to dip in the pool instead.

Around 5-ish, we headed back home. Unbeknownst to our passengers, our gas was hanging by a thread. Thank God we found a Caltex station!
Oh what a fun weekend with good ‘ole friends with ze boyfrans. 🙂
