Province of Zambales Travel Guide: 572 reviews and 2,287 photos
Zambales is blessed with a diverse landscape. pristine beaches, rich rivers, scenic mountains, infamous volcano, fertile plains, winding canals...the list goes on. Aside from that, Zambales has this unique diversity of peoples - Sambals, Aetas, Ilocanos, Tagalogs and even a generation of Eurasians, the most visible effect of American occupation in this part of Luzon.
For a province with an enviable abundance, one might think that it's a shame that Zambales remains mediocre in its economic performance. But should its beauty (a large part of it is untouched) be sacrificed for the sake of progress?
Zambales is probably lucky to surrender a city or two to urbanization and leave the rest in their countryside charms.
The set-up of cities surrounded by breathtaking but not jampacked attractions proves to be the advantage of the province.
I've only been to four municipalities - Palauig (the beaches!) Iba (culture!), San Felipe (beaches again!) and Olongapo (urbanity and leisure), but Zambales has already captivated my heart. The ordinary bus ride from Manila helped a lot.
