Aside from feeding the koi at the lake, what else is there to do in Nuvali these days?
(Watch out for a separate post on the newest restaurants in Nuvali)
1. Family fun for everyone.
Enjoy the lake breeze, do some shopping or ride the water taxis.
Last Sunday I saw a lot of families on their weekend pasyal at the retail center of Nuvali, also known as Solenad.
There was a bazaar as part of the pre-Halloween festivities–so for those who love their retail therapy, there’s definitely shopping to be done. Am guessing we’ll see more of these weekend markets as Christmas approaches!
Those looking for more active activities can ride the water taxis around the lake for P30 per head…
These are simple bicycles good for leisurely rides from Solenad until the EvoLiving Center, perfect for those cloudy afternoons! The smallest bikes they have are still too big for children though (unless they have incredibly long legs!)
2. Get eco-aware.
Learn about our environment and how we can do our part in taking care of it–as if you were on an educational field trip!
We checked out the exhibit area on the environmental vision of Nuvali and were wowed by the different features of this eco-city!
Even as a purely educational visit, this is a must in Nuvali!
3. Enjoy the outdoors.
Run, bike, and coming soon–wakeboard!
Pedestrian lanes and bike paths have been purposefully designed into the master plan of Nuvali, and I think it’s safe to expect to see more trails and outdoor activities developed in the future.
My brothers have gone biking around Nuvali a number of times, and it makes me happy that bikers are a regular sight around the area. This is one everyday activity I’m excited to do once I live there!
The terrain of Nuvali makes it ideal for bikers of various levels — not to mention the mountain vistas and birdsong that will accompany you. Here’s a view of the slope coming from the Southern part of Nuvali (this area is where Venare will be). This is sure to make any jogger or biker jug down liters of water (or maybe that’s just beginner me)!
There’s also a bird sanctuary near Montecito that I have yet to visit:
4. Relax and pamper yourself.
After a day of fun under the sun, visit the spa or get that mani-pedi for a complete pampered weekend.
Just spotted: Headzone parlor at Solenad. In One Evotech (the building across), there’s also Indulgence Day Spa– truly a sight for sore eyes…and legs, feet and everything else .
Nuvali is really looking to be a a new gathering place in the South… and I’m sure it will be busily buzzing even more in the coming months.
