When in Manila, whether you’re working, studying or plainly existing amidst the pressures of city-living, you cannot help but long for an escape. A kind of getaway that will give you back all the positive vibes that got drained in routine and stress. A trip that will lead you back to your old-self, rejuvenated.
With Manila destinations sprouting everywhere, it’s getting harder and harder to find a legitimate go-to place that is worth the time and travel.

Take a leave, pack your bags and brave places outside Manila such as Pico de Loro Cove for that much awaited escape.
Pico de Loro Cove is one of the 13 coves at Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu Batangas. It is called as such because Mt. Pico, a notable destination for mountaineers alike, resembles a parrot’s beak. Since Pico De Loro Cove is in the farther side of Batangas the expected travel time is 3-4 hours; but a new road called “Cavitex” connects Manila to Nasugbu instantaneously, cutting down the travel time to 1.5- 2 hours.
