Cove Tour – Pico de Loro is just one of 13 coves in Hamilo Coast, you can take a boat ride and see the other 12 coves. Here are some details about the other coves that you may see.
- SANTELMO: This is the cove to the right of Pico de Loro, also known as little Boracay to the locals because of its fine white sand comparable to the one in Boracay. This little cove can actually be a venue for small events that you can arrange through the Pico Sands Hotel banquets.
- LIMBONES & NEELA: These coves are believed to be sites of a sunken Japanese warship and Spanish galleons
- BUCANITA: This cove has a tunnel where the boat can go through while you are awed by the scenic view.
Playroom for kids – If it’s too hot outside for a swim you can bring the kids in the Pico Club. This play area is a wonderland for kids ages 3-7 years old. My daughter’s personal favorite is the kiddie zip line.
Bowling and Billiards – For the kids older than 7 years old, just right across the playground is the bowling lanes and billiard hall. Great indoor activity for bonding and fun.
Relaxing Massage – Pico Sands Hotel has a spa, called the Rain Spa. You can have a massage indoors at the hotel or outdoor by the beach club.
Eat, Eat and Eat! – If you are renting a condo, you may cook in the unit or dine in 4 restaurants in Pico de Loro. 1st is the Lagoa Restaurant at the Country Club, they usually serve ala carte on weekdays and buffet during the weekends and breakfast with unlimited bacon on the spread. 2nd is the Pico restaurant in the hotel, a must try in this restaurant is the bulalo. 3rd is the Sun Coral Cafe, if you are a member or accompanied by a member, you may dine in this restaurant located at the beach club which serves Mediterranean inspired dishes. And lastly the Reef bar by the beach serves light beach comfort food like burgers, sandwiches and drinks.
Water activities – Pico de loro is a great spot for snorkeling since it is a marine reserve, you may also enjoy other activities like kayaking, jet ski, banana boat, paddle boat, wind surfing and plain old swimming. The beach at Pico de loro is gently sloping and the waves aren’t too big making it ideal and safe for the kids.
Other indoor activities – aside from the play area, bowling and billiards the country club also has an indoor basketball court, badminton court, video game room, karaoke room, squash court, tennis court, fitness gym and game room for cards and board games.

There’s another pool by the beach club that you can use if you’re a member or accompanied by a member.
