The Philippines is widely known as a country with beautiful islands, coves and beaches, some are already mainstream and has been serving both local and international tourists like Bohol, Palawan, Cebu, Boracay and more. But there are still undiscovered and begging for you to see, and one of these is the new hot summer destination in Luzon, Zambales.
Zambales is about 3-4 hours drive from Manila, guests may ride the Victory Liner Bus going to Olongapo or Iba, it depends on where in Zambales they want to visit. There are various places in Zambales that can take you into your desired islands.
To make our getaway easier, we contacted a bangkero that will take us to our destinations, our meeting point is in Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales, specifically in 7/11, we bought snacks and lunch before heading to the beach port.
Our first cove will be the farthest one among our itinerary today:
1. Nagsasa Cove– It took us about 2 hours and a half, months ago Nadine Lustre and James Reid also posted pictures of themselves during their stay here. Guest may also take the opportunity to visit the cove’s lakes, falls and took a hike and capture IG- worthy pictures at Mt. Nagsasa.
2. Talisayen Cove– a tranquil place where less crowd and noise. Perfect for families and barkadas who are really looking for a peaceful retreat.
3. Anawangin Cove- one of the most known coves, there are a lot of campers, souvenir shops, food stores (you will never get hungry!)
All the 3 coves have no network, so get ready to see that no signal sign on your phones.
4. Capones Island– a white sand island, there are no stores in the island, overnight stay on the island is not also allowed. Tourists just visit the island as part of their side trips while visiting the other coves and islands.
