Crystal Beach Resort
Zambales Province Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
I normally go to Zambales when I feel like chasing the waves and exhaust my self from surfing. Where else should I stay other than a resort that offers exactly what I need:a fine sand (not exactly white), a surfboard and a comfortable bed/hammock to stay for the night. Crystal beach is located in San Narciso, Zambales. Its two (2) hours away from Olongapo City - the capital of Zambales. The resort offers an unforgettable surfing experience for both amateurs and pro surfers.
To reach this destination, you can buy your bus ticket in Victory Liner - Cubao. They offer a direct ride from Cubao, Quezon City to San Narciso, Zambales (277Php/pax). If you missed the bus, you can take a Cubao - Olongapo City route (207Php/pax) and then take another Victory Liner bus or other bus liner for that matter that will take you to San Narciso (ranges from 50-100Php/pax). You just need to ask the bus conductor to drop you off San Narciso plaza. The means of transportation in San Narcisco are either by bus or tricycle. Right in front of the plaza, you will find different tricycle terminals for different "barangays".
For those who wants to bring their own car, you can take Balintawak and then exit to NLEX. From the last tollgate of NLEX, you must exit in SCTEX and drive straight to Subic/SBMA. Once you've reach SBMA tollgate, you need to go to the right - Rizal highway until you reach Olongapo City tollgate. You turn left in Canal Street and left again to San Narciso, Zambales.
Crystal Beach is known for skim boarder and surfer for its the only resort in San Narciso, Zambales that offers both surfers and skim boarders's dream location (big waves, fine sand, quiet surrounding) and facilities for comfortable stay.
They also offer island hopping to maximize your stay in Zambales, offer surf lessons for those who wants to learn, team-building activities, and catering for special events: wedding receptions, birthdays, company outings and alike.
