On Monday, April 18, she also visited the Baluarte Watch Tower, a watchtower near the area built during the Spanish period.

Balesin Island Club (Heart Evangelista / Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez)

It seems as though this exclusive private island is slowly but surely becoming a celebrity club in its own right. For Holy Week, Heart Evangelista visited the spot with her glam team. (By the way, she was even spotted drinking gin for the first time in the fancy resort.)
