The Casa Amara View
From the main highway, we turned left going to Brgy. Imelda. The access road is rough, but our companions who were in their subcompacts easily handled the terrain. A few meters from Casa Amara, an overlooking view of the sea will greet you and we immediately realized then that this will be a different San Juan experience. Casa Amara itself looks like a castle from afar, situated on top of a cliff, right beside the sea. We get mixed feelings of excitement, anticipation, and fear because of how high the house in relation to the sea below.
It’s not just a beach or coastal community — it’s Lobo!
Lobo, Batangas is literally a town far from the hustle and bustle of the city. A third-class municipality that is abundant in land, sea, and agriculture, it is a thriving community along the globally acclaimed Verde Island Passage, known to be at the “center of the center of marine biodiversity in the world.”
Situated in Barangay Olo-olo, Lawas Seaside Resort is a nature-endowed beachside location that is perfect for every bakasyonista, group of friends and family who want to experience a peaceful haven with white sand beaches surrounded by mangrove forests, pawikan sanctuary nests, and a natural river abundant in a variety of fish.
