A VERDANT outdoor site is a perfect getaway for those who avoid crowded places, as coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is still a threat to one's health.

Baluarte is considered an oasis for those who love nature-packed scenery with trees and cool atmosphere.

It is located at Hacienda Baluarte in Barangay Alegria in the town of Murcia, hence its name.

It has a semblance of a tourist destination in Bali in Indonesia and Kyoto in Japan.

One can reach Baluarte through a 40-minute ride from Bacolod City, passing the Alangilan junction.

Baluarte is best for family and group recreation, perfectly nestled at Mount Marapara.

It's a perfect getaway for those who want to flee from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

One can enjoy seeing plentiful bamboo trees and lush greenery that envelops the site.

The hums of birds in the morning will take off one's cares and concerns.

Baluarte has a swimming pool and tiny artificial waterfalls that are the best spots for friends and family who want meaningful capture moments while enjoying an exchange of pleasantries. Some can wade at the fresh water-filled swimming pool.

Just be safe while enjoying the site.
