Anawangin Cove: Summer Getaway

Saturday, April 20, 2013

It's a dream come true to finally visit Anawangin Cove and explore it's inner beauty.
I've read so many blog reviews about this destination and saw a lot of amazing pictures of my friends and others who got the chance to travel here and finally, it's
my turn to share my experience.

Anawangin Cove in Zambales,  is a popular destination for camping and beach outings. A perfect location if you just want to get close to the nature or just need a quiet place to unwind and relax. Anawangin offers a lot of adventure activities for a camping travel itinerary. What I love most about this place is that there's a white sand beach and pine trees! Can you imagine that?:)

Anawangin is a crescent-shaped cove lined with pine trees on its shore which gives it a different impression compared to the other tropical beach resorts in the country which are mostly lined with coconut trees. 

The sand is white and soft with a mixture of volcanic ashes from the last eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. The cove is complimented by the surrounding mountain rocks giving it a picturesque and poster-perfect view especially when the sunset is giving-off an orange glow that reflects to the mountain curves.

How to Get There
Anawangin Cove is located in San Antonio, Zambales, Philippines. You can take public buses from Manila to Iba, Zambales which will consume approximately 6 hours. If you prefer to travel by car, the trip will only take around 4 hours via SCTex. Upon reaching San Antonio, a 10-20 minute tricycle ride is necessary to take you to Pundaquit (a.k.a Pundakit), the jump-off point to Anawangin Cove and the nearby beaches. From Pundaquit to Anawangin, you’ll need to take a 45-minute boat ride.

Best Times to Go

The best time to go to Anawangin Cove is during the month of January and February. It is the time when it is not too crowded and the climate is not too hot yet not that rainy and the waves are calm.  December to June are the regular travel months here.

I surely enjoyed our trip there. I even forgot to put SPF lotion because I am so excited to dip into the fresh clear water of the beach but of course don't imitate me! don't forget to bring your SPF lotion to protect your skin from the harsh uv rays of the sun! I totally recommend foing to Anawangin Cove, it's one of the best summer destination here in the Philippines and you will totally enjoy all the activities ion this place.

Of course, I will not pass up the chance of taking pictures in every corner of this place!

Plus jump shot!
Hope you can visit it too this summer! :-)
