The town of Lobo is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the province of Batangas because of its beautiful beaches. The coastlines enveloping the five barangays of Fabrica, Masaguitsit, Olo-Olo, Malabrigo, Soloc and Sawang could be a refuge for travelers wanting to temporarily escape the bustles of everyday life, not to mention the suffocating heat and pollution, in the metropolis.
After the backbreaking reunion climb to Mount Banoi on the afternoon of 18 December 2011, the crew headed for a side trip to collect ourselves. Among the multitude of beach resorts we had seen along the coastline of Barangay Fabrica, we chose Lobo Beach Club & Spa for its affordability, neatness, and simplicity.
On the flip side, we were just not that lucky to experience what is in store for the spa offer because of one reason: it was not peak of the summer season yet when we got there.
So I explored what is in this resort instead. I quivered with joy when I saw a mangrove swamp at the back of the hotel suite. My wandering feet’s lust for wonders of nature never fails to help me discover amazing things in a place.
What I first noticed upon getting closer to it was a smelly and mosquito-ridden place. But when I framed it, the true beauty came out—all the more when I remembered the value of mangroves. They are something that should not be overlooked because they serve as a bridge between terrestrial and marine environments forming an extremely productive ecosystems. They are like bees for coral reefs and fish species.
I have always been vocal on how I love to look at the the mighty sun especially when it sets, so this post would not be complete without one. I patiently waited for the mighty sun to set over the horizon.
Seeing the limitless horizon as darkness approaches is just tremendously soothing to the soul–magic at its best!
For those who might wonder if there are other activities offered in the resort, don’t fret because Lobo Beach Club & Spa has playing grounds for beach volleyball, badminton, table tennis, and frisbee. But the catch is, they are for free if you avail the exclusive accommodations.
