Lovely candidates of Miss Earth 2018 took one last tour of the Philippines and visited Playa Calatagan, a quintessential beach development of Landco Pacific Corporation located in Calatagan, Batangas, to immerse themselves with the Southern charm, the white beach shoreline, and the convenience of modern amenities that is harmonious with Nature.
The ladies were first taken to a tour of the site where they planted tree seedlings as a part of their commitment towards preserving Mother Nature. They then enjoyed the afternoon shade of the lush amphitheater located at the heart of the residential complex. The Earth goddesses also had the chance to experience the refreshing pools of Aquaria Water Park and stay at the quaint Crusoe Cabins which are made from repurposed container vans.
The eco-tour was joined by Miss Earth Bahamas Samia Lauryn McClain, Miss Earth Bosnia and Herzegovina Nadja Pepić, Miss Earth Brazil Sayonara Veras , Miss Earth China Guo Yameng, Miss Earth Israel Dana Zreik, Miss Earth Reunion Island Alexia Aupin.
“Landco takes pride in pioneering estates that embrace Nature just like Playa Calatagan. Miss Earth provided us the perfect opportunity to showcase one of our leisure tourism developments that we really take pride in—an unparalleled location fronting the Verde Island Passage, beachfront living, and a complete escape from the busy city life,” said President and CEO Cris Zuluaga.
The Verde Island Passage is considered “the center of the center of marine biodiversity” in the Coral Triangle for being home to 1,000 marine species, 12 of which are considered ‘rare and new.’
