Summer Family Outing at Isola Vista

This 2016, I spent my very first summer outing with the Melo Clan at Isola Vista Beach Resort in Pagkilatan, Batangas City. The trip was sponsored by my husband’s balikbayan aunt (Thanks, Tita Rose ) save for the entrance fee we paid for ourselves, which was fair enough. That being said, I won’t be going over the details regarding the fees, expenditures and whatnots, just the pure experience. They made reservations for an overnight stay (4pm-8am) with two nipa huts, 1 large open cottage and a grilling area, just enough to suffice 20+ of us.

There’s my Bori with this awesome overlooking view of the venue and what’s beyond it. You can see at this moment, the tide was sorta low but there’s a point in a day where the tide gets high and the waves bowl over the pool divisions. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of the majestic view but it was truly spectacular.


I took this breath-taking view. BTW, the pools are constantly filled with saltwater derived from the sea itself, thus the name, Infinity Pool.


One of my favorites from the photos I took is this tree on a tiny headland along the resort’s coastline during a low tide. Kind of reminds me of the Moses’ encounter with the burning bush in Mount Sinai.


Here’s a snapshot of some of our gorgeous Melo gang…

To sum it all up, I truly enjoyed it here at Isola Vista. It’s a must-see paradise this summer. 



Always remember that wherever life takes you, it’s the gratitude attitude that makes every experience worth the while. Salamat po!

  1. Hi,
    Any tips on the drive going to Isola Vista? We’d be coming from Quezon City. Are there terrains or mostly just plain roads?
