Pandemic hit the travel industry so hard, and I’m glad that little by little, resorts are now starting to open up to the public. One of those resorts is Pico De Loro Beach & Country Club. Located at Hamilo Coast, Pico de Loro Cove, Barangay Papaya, Nasugbu, Batangas. You may book an overnight stay via Agoda or Airbnb, or a day tour like we did.
Like every open establishment in the Philippines, our health and safety is their priority. We can still enjoy traveling by making sure we follow the preventive measures in light of pandemic situation.
Also, please take note of the proper swimming attire.
We booked a day tour trip through a member of the Pico De Loro Beach & Country Club. You may book through this FB page SEE Condominium Rental at Pico de Loro. For day tour guests, there were no requirements needed. However, we were told that if you’ll book for an overnight stay, you’ll be asked to present swab test, health certificate, and health declaration form.
It’s pretty easy to go around Pico de Loro because there are shuttles that you can hop on. We took a shuttle from the clubhouse to the beach. It wasn’t that far, you can walk to there actually! But since we have bags, we had to take the shuttle.
Beach Club swimming pool
You can only stay at the beach because the beach club is exclusive to the members and member-accompanied guests. However, if the member is with you, that’s not going to be a problem.
The sand is not white, it’s kind of creamy brown. There’s not a lot of rocks, it’s actually very fine sand. Also, there weren’t any seaweeds in the water so it’s perfect for swimming. Beware of some areas though as there are jellyfish.
It was a Sunday when we went, and beach beds are first come first served so we opted to put some beach mats and chill by the Reef Bar.
The view is still nice over here
We had to wait for the sun to hide a little as it was scorching hot!
There are beach activities that you can choose from. I wasn’t able to ask for all the rental fees but here’s what I got – Kayak PHP400 per hour and Jet ski PHP6,500 per hour.
Our friends enjoyed the jet ski!
There’s a swing by the beach, perfect if you want to tan or toast LOL
Since we stayed near the Reef Bar, it was easy to order food and drinks. Here’s the menu for your reference.
Going there with your friends and family is the best! Always a great time with this bunch!
This picture doesn’t give justice, but the sunset was pinkish and it’s beautiful!
