Hamilo Coast is a sprawling seaside sanctuary located near the southwestern tip of Luzon, one of the three main island groups of the Philippines. Bounded by the vast West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) on the west and misty cloud-covered mountain ranges in the east, the property encompasses three major mountain peaks and thirteen coves, three of which are Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).
Only a 90-minute drive from the SM Mall of Asia, Hamilo Coast is envisioned to become the premier sustainable beach resort town of the Philippines. Its unique location at the head of the Nasugbu coastline – the long-established favored seaside address of the country’s elite, makes it the gateway to the so-called “Philippine Riviera”.
