Geography

Punta Fuego is a flamed-shape peninsula in Nasugbu, Batangas. It is one of the three land masses jutting out of the coastline of Nasugbu into the South China Sea. It has twelve white sand beaches, varied natural rock formations, underwater caves excellent for diving and snorkeling experience, and coral reefs with rich marine life.

History

Historical accounts show Punta Fuego as the site of battle between the Spanish Galleon San Diego and the Dutch battleship Mauritius, which was said to carry a crew of pirates on December 14, 1600 . “Fuego!” the Spanish captain commanded, “Fuego!” , thus the name Punta Fuego or point of fire.

Decades after, it became the "Pedrosa's" and the "Roxas" Family Estates. There were no roads, no electricity, and no modern amenities only white beaches and beautiful seas. Roxas Hacienda, in 1997, was developed into Peninsula de Punta Fuego, by Landco Pacific Corporation and Roxaco Land Corporation. While, the Pedrosa Family estate, in 2001, was developed into another enclave in Punta Fuego, the Terrazas de Punta Fuego, by PeACE, Landco, and Roxaco. Their goal to build a premiere seaside residential community that will preserve the best of nature while introducing the modern amenities of a world-class resort, was achieved.

In 2001, the ceremonial ground-breaking signaled the start of development of Terrazas de punta Fuego.

At present, Punta Fuego is the home of the most exclusive club in the country, blessed with two marinas, a golf course, and 12 beach coves.
