Escape to Pico de Loro

Summer's here, time for some sun and sand, time to hit the beach. And just an hour and a half's drive south of the metro, Pico de Loro is quickly emerging as the country's premier sustainable beach resort destination.

Within the sprawling seaside sanctuary lies Pico de Loro, the maiden residential community of Hamilo Coast. The massive 5,800 hectare property includes forests, mountains, 13 picturesque coves and 25 kilometers of coastline, just the place for that perfect escape from the city.
