Top Spots for Your Next Road Trip Destination in Rizal

Rizal is known as the closest neighbor of Metro Manila in the East. Not only does this give Rizaleños easy access to the bustling business districts, but it also allows them to enjoy the best of both urban and rural life.

Aside from the accessibility of Rizal to the metro, living here offers more advantages. The province is also known for its countless tourist destinations that will surely captivate anyone’s heart. While visiting, you might want to check out these top spots that could be your next road trip destination.


Whenever you hear the word Antipolo, the very first tourist spot that will come to your mind is its famous place of worship which is the Antipolo Cathedral. This is where the famous miraculous icon, Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, lies. This is also why many people go here for the blessing of their new vehicles. During holy week, thousands of pilgrims join the annual Alay Lakad, where Catholics walk or drive from their home to the church.


There is a very popular windmill up north, and that is the Bangui Windmills in Ilocos Norte. But worry not if you are from the East or other nearby areas of Rizal, for it has its own giant wind turbines. It is located in Barangay Halayhayin, Pililla, just an hour away from the metro. Aside from the 27 gigantic, white fans, you can also enjoy the scenic view of Laguna de Bay. This place is best whether you are with your friends and family or just yourself if you want some relaxing ambiance.


If you are the adventurous type, then Masungi Georeserve found between Baras and Tanay, Rizal should be in your bucket list. The trek will take about 3-4 hours before you reach its highest peak. While this might be just a piece of cake for the experienced hikers and mountaineers, this could be challenging yet exciting for the newbies.


Laguna de Bay is the largest lake in the Philippines, and its largest lake island is Talim Island in Rizal. Here, you can go biking, take stunning photos, enjoy birdwatching, and have lunch in a floating house. From Binangonan proper, you have to ride a boat going to Talim Island. Once you’re there, you can also try hiking Mount Tagapo, where you can enjoy the overlooking view of Laguna de Bay. Islanders also get to create different types of bamboo furniture, for the island is rich in bamboo grass.


One of the more frequently visited places of interest in Antipolo is the Pinto Art Museum—a set of Mediterranean-inspired buildings featuring various artwork from canvas paintings to sculptures. There are also a couple of restaurants with a nice relaxing ambiance and good food around the area. This makes it a well worthwhile spot for lunch, with the wonderfully landscaped gardens and unique building structures. Even if you’re not into art, it is well worth a visit.

Truly, Rizal is one of the top tourist destinations we have here in the Philippines. The best part of it is that it is very accessible whether you’re from the North or South. Additionally, Camella communities are just minutes away from the said tourist spots. These neighborhoods provide a hassle-free journey going to different destinations. If you are the traveler type of person, investing in Camella Rizal should be on your options.
