Zambales brought me into its hidden paradise. No doubt why people visit this one amazing province in Central Luzon. If you want to see more of this breathtaking site, check out my the previous post about Anawangin, Capones Island and Pundaquit Beach.

Surfing, Island Hopping, Trekking, Snorkeling, Diving, Swimming, Skimboarding, etc…


  • Since there’s no electricity, bring flashlights and power bank. No mobile networks and signals in Anawangin cove. You may get a network in Capones Island but might still be a poor connection.
  • Bring sunblock to protect your skin
  • Bring mosquitoes repellent
  • Bring ropes – you’ll use it for hanging your wet clothes
  • Bring cameras, blanket, pillow, zip lock bag, toiletries, and goggles.
  • Opener, knife (for opening cans, bottles)
  • Bring food and water if staying overnight. Stores are available, however, it’s pricey. (Note that our tour operator provided food and water for us).
