Pico De Loro Cove: Amazing health benefits of living by the sea

How does one’s body regain a sense of wellness following weeks of enforced confinement? With plenty of sunshine, salt-kissed sea breezes and clear blue skies at Pico de Loro Cove. 

Many of us grew up being told that spending time at the beach was good for one’s health, particularly for those afflicted by asthma or perennial allergies. Modern medical research actually affirms that a trip to the beach has great benefits for one’s health, especially now that the specter of a deadly virus looms over us.

According to Dr. Thomas W. Ferkol of the American Thoracic Society, exposure to salt-tinged ocean breeze had a beneficial effect on patients who participated in a 48-week study conducted in the Australian Coast. Findings showed that not only did saline breeze clear their lungs, it also decreased allergy flare-ups as well as the need for respiratory antibiotics. A subsequent study featured in The New England Journal of Medicine also revealed that regular exposure to saline air helped boost immunity against respiratory infections, particularly among those who lived in seaside towns or coastal regions.

That said, people should consider a beachside getaway after being cooped up for weeks by the enhanced community quarantine. After nearly two months of being unable to take a good stroll or run, there is a strong craving for places where the sea stretches as far as the eye can see and the sounds of birdsong and crashing waves soothe the spirit. People need a safe and expansive open-air venue to celebrate their return to freedom; they need a change of pace from a sedentary existence to one that renews their vitality in a setting that is close to nature. For that, city dwellers only need to look at a seaside enclave just 90 minutes south of Manila in Nasugbu, Batangas — Hamilo Coast, where one can find the perfect combination of sand, sea, and sky.
