Oftentimes, when tourists hear "Subic", they think of Subic Bay Freeport Zone...Actually, SUBIC is a seaside town sandwiched between the mountain ranges of Zambales, Subic Bay and the South China Sea. It is located northwest of Bataan and southwest of Zambales. It is about 100 kilometers away from Manila.
Today, Subic is popularly known as the site of Subic Freeport Zone and Subic International Airport; also known as a beach town, site of tourists' favorite beaches like White Rock Beach and Camayan Beach; site of the Subic Lighthouse (the real lighthouse) and the Lighthouse Hotel in Moonbay Marina of Subic Freeport Zone); and now popularly known as no. 1 tourist destination for extreme sports and adventures, as it boasts of pristine beaches and interesting dive & snorkeling sites, virgin forests, wildlife conservatory (Zoobic), marine conservatory (Ocean Adventure) and other ecotourism destinations/adventures.
Subic Baywalk is a reclaimed area behind the rows of hotels and restaurants in Moonbay Marina along Waterfront Road. Much like the reclaimed area in Manila Baywalk, Subic Waterfront Baywalk is a favorite place of morning joggers, exercise buffs, photo hobbyists, and family members as well as lovers who simply want to stroll along the beach. It has an Events Area, the Baywalk Park, where TV stations and various corporations hold special shows and/or events.
For those who frequent Subic Bay Freeport Zone, you'll be missing a familiar sight: the wooden boardwalk at the park. The last time we went there, the boardwalk has been totally dismantled to make way for something new. The locals we talked to didn't know what exactly the plans are, but most probably, it will be an extension of the Baywalk Park in the reclaimed area at Moonbay Marina.
Subic is just about 2 1/2 hours drive from our home. So whenever we feel like nature-tripping, we hie to Subic and go to our favorite Camayan Beach, explore other areas we haven't been to and do things we haven't done, eat the food we've been craving for, walk the stretch of Subic Baywalk for exercise, watch the sunrise and sunset, search for new subjects for photography, or just take a snooze in our favorite hotel.
- Pros:Very beautiful beach & well-preserved virgin forest; much more hotel & dining options now:-)
- Cons:Irritating souvenir peddlers that tail you at the Baywalk:-(
