West 35 Eco Mountain Resort
The main highlight of West 35 Eco Mountain resort is the 360-degree view of the area, including sea side view of Balamban making Tsuneishi visible from its roof/viewing deck. Aside from that, West 35 has its own childrens play room, zip lines, function rooms and restaurant.
Buwakan ni Alejandra
Buwakan ni Alejandra is more or less like Sirao Garden, it’s a flower farm. So the main highlight of Buwakan ni Alejandra is plants, both those varieties with colorful leaves and those flower-bearing plants of different colors and varieties. There isn’t much structure here though unlike Sirao garden where there are so much options for your selfies.
JVR Island in the Sky
Just in front or opposite side of the road from Buwakan ni Alejandra, lies the JVR Island in the Sky. For me personally, the highlight here is the hanging bridge. Though they offer adventure rides as well like cable car.
Just beside buwakan ni Alejandra, is the Adventure Cafe. Highlights here are just there zip line and the restaurant.

It offers one of the best views as well from the top. Seeing the sea side of Balamban and the rest of the mountain area.
