Pico De Loro Cove: The Surprising Health Benefits Of Living By The Sea
Restful, Peaceful, Healthful
How does a body regain a sense of wellness following weeks of enforced confinement? – Plenty of sunshine, salt-kissed breezes from the sea, and clear blue skies all at Pico de Loro Cove.
Many of us grew up being told that spending time at the beach was good for one’s health, particularly for those who had asthma or perennial allergies. Modern medical research has actually proven that a trip to the beach has great benefits for one’s health, particularly now with the spectre of viruses looming over us.
According to Dr. Thomas W. Ferkol of the American Thoracic Society, exposure to salt-tinged ocean breezes had a beneficial effect on patients who participated in a 48-week study conducted in the Australian Coast. Findings show that not only did saline breezes clear the lungs of these patients, but it also decreased allergy flare-ups as well as the need for respiratory antibiotics. A subsequent study featured in The New England Journal of Medicine also showed that regular exposure to saline air helped boost immunity against respiratory infections, particularly among those who lived in seaside towns or coastal regions.
That said, people should consider a beachside getaway after being cooped up for weeks by the enhanced community quarantine. After nearly two months of being unable to breathe fresh air or to take a good stroll or run, there is a strong craving for places where the sea stretches as far as the eye can see and the sounds of birdsong and crashing waves can be heard. People need a safe and expansive open-air venue to celebrate a return to freedom; they need a change of pace from a sedentary experience into one that renews their vitality in a location that is much closer to nature. For that, city dwellers only need to look at a location just 90 minutes south of Manila in Nasugbu, Batangas – Hamilo Coast, where one can find the perfect combination of sand, sea, and sky.
Pico de Loro Cove in Hamilo Coast, occupies a total area of approximately 40 hectares, with a 1.5-kilometer coastline, is made exquisite by a pristine white sand beach.

There are even options for those looking for quieter pursuits – bird-watching through the lush Estate grounds, meandering through the beach on a pony, checking out the different art installations scattered throughout the property, or learning more about the interaction between man and nature by way of a trek through a mangrove forest.
