Anawangin Cove Pundaquit Reviews
Hidden Paradise of Anawangin Jan 31, 2009
One of the hidden beaches of the Philippines. My experience there was an awesome one for the following reasons:
1. it's isolation.
2. a bizarre landscape. It is coined as Boracay meets Baguio.
3. Hiking experience. It offeres from easy to difficult trail.
4. no electricity. the stars seems brighter here. :)
How to get there
You can take any bus from Manila to Iba or Sta. Cruz, Zambales. Buses to Zambales leave the Victory Liner stations in Caloocan (about 23 trips from 5 a.m. to 12 midnight) and Pasay (four trips from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.) Fare to San Antonio is about PHP235.
Get off at the town proper of San Antonio and charter a tricycle to take you to the jump-off point in Pundaquit. That's about PHP50 per person or PHP200 per tricycle. Boat rentals to Anawangin and the nearby islands range from PHP800 to PHP1200 depending on your itinerary.
Where to stay
While many visitors to Anawangin camp there for the night, there are a lot of accommodations available in Pundaquit:
