Me and my friends wanted to relax and unwind thus we planned a trip to Anawangin, Zambales. From Manila, It's a 3 hour drive to Pundaquit, then from there ride the boat, approximately a 40-hour boat ride to Anawangin. You can take side trips to nearby Islands such as Capones and Camara Island - 2 beautiful white beaches. Capones, of which you can hike going to the lighthouse for picture taking. ;)
The boatman was so nice & honest. I remember asking him, "kuya may pating ba dito?" (are there sharks here?), without hesitating he answered me "yes". Haha. But he assured me not to worry ;)
We were so excited that we left Manila without bringing anything aside from money. Little did we know that it was a BIG mistake. We should have brought food instead.
For me and Patrick (my boyfriend), we were so thrilled to go to Anawangin as it's our first time to go camping - a lot different from our usual out of town trips. We enjoyed the Island vibe, indeed a camping experience. No electricity, no cell site, just us and the ocean.
Getting drunk in Anawangin was an ultimate experience. You can sleep along the beach without anyone noticing it ;) You can even set up a bonfire for Php 200.
- Pros:Ultimate adventure
- Cons:No electricity, has only 2 bathrooms, no food (so bring)
- In a nutshell:Pine trees within the beach
Beware of swimming at night or going too far from the shore. Zambales is known for it's strong currents and there are... more travel advice
