Batangas is usually the go-to beach destination of most individuals from Manila. However, drive further up north and pass through Subic Bay. It will lead you to Zambales where you will get to experience a different kind of escapade with your friends or family.

Each island manifests a distinct feature that will leave you in awe. It will cast a spell on you, convincing you to stay longer or better yet not leave at all.

Hop on a boat and see it for yourself.

Anawangin Cove

No need to rent a boat to head over Anawangin. You may also opt to hike Mt. Pundaquit to see the view of this cove as a whole. After that strenuous trek, one may enjoy the cool waters of the sea.

Nagsasa Cove

The splendor of Nagsasa Cove is beyond words. I bet everyone would agree to that. Let the warmth of the rising sun greet you a happy morning while you lie inside your tent.

Capones Island

Ready your snorkeling gear or diving equipment because Capones Island is a diver’s haven. Enjoy the crystal clear waters of this island in depth.

Camara Island

Another picturesque view for a tiny island! Better add this stop to your itinerary. Be careful when the tide gets high though.

Talisayen Cove
