Island Cove: Now Nearer To Metro Manila

  • Island Cove got nearer to Metro Manila. Thanks to Cavitex, the 6.6 kilometer extension of Cavite Coastal Expressway. For those of you who used to be reluctant in driving to this resort and leisure park because of the notorious traffic along the way especially in Emilio Aguinaldo Hi-way, the good news has finally arrived: "Driving to this primary tourist destination of Cavite is now a breeze!".

    What are in store for you in Island Cove?

    Island Cove is an enclave of multitude of attractions and family-oriented adventures. As one of their brochures says, "Everything You Want in a Getaway" is here. Some of the major attractions here are: Adventure Zone, Animal Island, Bayside Live Music & KTV, Fishing Village, Hotel at Island Cove, Oceania Water Park and Sangley Point Express. There are sports and recreation facilities, restaurants, function rooms, concert grounds, wellness centers and spas as well as nightly entertainment.

    So, how do we get to Island Cove from Metro Manila in a breeze?

    Lagalag shares to you how fast he traveled from Quezon city to the location of Island Cove in Covelandia, Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite.

    Lagalag took the usual route from Quezon City to Roxas Boulevard. He then turned right onto CCP Complex to take Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard all the way to Pacific Avenue, the road where Macapagal ends. He turned left on Pacific Avenue and then turned right onto Coastal Road. This is the quickest way to Coastal Road from where he came from as this route avoids the heavy traffic along Roxas Boulevard, Baclaran and intersection of NAIA Road. Lagalag paid 22 pesos in the tollway. That's the amount due for class 1 vehicle. He checked the time at 2:47 pm.

    Then he breezed into Kawit via Cavitex real fast. He turned right onto Tirona Highway and then made a U-turn to get back to the junction of Cavitex and Tirona Highway. He then turned left onto old Covelandia Road which runs paralleled to the east of the new Cavitex. He took the northbound lane of Covelandia and after the road passed under the Cavitex elevated roadway, Island Cove Entrance came into view. He looked at his watch and the time read 3:06 pm.

    Lagalag entered the resort and parked his car in the large parking lot in front of Hotel at Island Cove. On the way home, he took the same route of Covelandia Road, turning right from Island Cove Gate onto the southbound lane of Covelandia. Then he turned right onto the dedicated lane going to Cavitex situated before the junction of Tirona Highway.

    Cavitex last phase near Tirona Highway is not yet complete as of this time. On the way towards the intersection of Tirona Highway, motorists from Manila have to pass through the lane bound for Manila because the Cavite bound lane is still closed. Lagalag needed to turn right onto Tirona Highway and made a U-Turn back to Cavitex on the way to Island Cove because there's still no dedicated lane going to that direction. Although, he noticed a lot of construction going on in the area where a road that looked like a slip road is being done. Other than that, the travel from Manila to Island Cove is relatively smooth. "It will be more so in the coming months.", he thought.
