Title: Anawangin Cove, Zambales
Post by: alford on February 13, 2008, 08:41:51 AM
Me and some friends were supposed to go to the Hot Air Balloon Festival last Saturday, then trek later to Mt Pinatubo and spend the weekend there. However, we had to cancel both trips since 1) we were not able to get access pass into the balloon airfield, and 2) there is a new rqmt that only a group of 30 or more persons are allowed to spend overnight at the crater (???).

So we decided to go to Anawangin Cove in Zambales instead. It was a wonderful experience...the only regret was that we were not able to go to nearby Capones Island due to rough seas.

So here are the photos. C&Cs are welcome.

Tks everyone for the comments. If you want to either relax in a quiet beach or shoot all weekend, Anawangin is an ideal place.

@ Jolan: gusto nga naming puntahan ang Capones eh....nandoon na kami, kitang-kita na namin 'yong island pero di kami makalapit.

@ Chi: ang aga-aga nasa good mood ka ah :) Tks!

@ Megz, Dni: sabi nga ni Manong Bangkero March-May hindi maalon...kaya pwedeng-pwede puntahan ang Capones.

Are there resorts at Anawangin? 

I plan to go there this weekend and spend it with my wife & son...pls. advise naman if this is feasible?  I was hoping that they would have resorts that have rooms/showers -T&B/restaurants...

Thanks for your response  ;D (for those who've been there before, pls. PM me details on how to get there...commute lang po kami)

@ Rafi: There are no resorts in Anawangin. You'll need a tent if you plan to stay there overnight. There's a makeshift restroom and 'poso' there.

The resorts/lodges are in Pundakit Beach, the jump off point to Anawangin. Boat ride from Pundakit beach to Anawangin is ~30-45 mins. What most people do is visit Anawangin in the morning then return to Pundakit in the afternoon.

Upon reaching San Antonio town, you can hire a tricyle to bring you to Pundakit beach. Fee is around P40. rgds.

Hi, sir. Really loved your shots. I especially like the shot with the boat. We went to Pundakit last Saturday and we plan to go to Anawangin next month. Safe ba yung place? I heard that there are wild carabaos roaming there (totoo ba ito?). How much nga pala yung boat ride?
Title: Re: Anawangin Cove, Zambales

I'm planning to go there too this friday or saturday.  Capones Island is my top priority, if not, i hope to see anawangin instead.  What's the earliest boat to the said islands?  I plan to leave late thursday or friday night so i can be at pundaquit very early the following morning.
Title: Re: Anawangin Cove, Zambales
Post by: jluc on February 19, 2008, 03:02:43 PM
earliest boat can leave as early as 5am i think. :) just talk to the local boatmen when you get there :)

Anawangin is very safe....there are caretakers there. Boat ride is around P300/person. You can park your car in Pundakit, the resorts there have parking spaces...you just have to pay for overnight parking. rgds.
Title: Re: Anawangin Cove, Zambales
Post by: sotsab on February 19, 2008, 05:26:10 PM
sir, do you have telephone numbers of the resort at pundaqit? what are the do's and don'ts in the island?thanks

hi alford, great set. i really love your photos since our old days at DPC :)

Me and some friends were supposed to go to the Hot Air Balloon Festival last Saturday, then trek later to Mt Pinatubo and spend the weekend there. However, we had to cancel both trips since 1) we were not able to get access pass into the balloon airfield, and 2) there is a new rqmt that only a group of 30 or more persons are allowed to spend overnight at the crater (???).

So we decided to go to Anawangin Cove in Zambales instead. It was a wonderful experience...the only regret was that we were not able to go to nearby Capones Island due to rough seas.

So here are the photos. C&Cs are welcome.

May contact numbers ba ng locals dun? How far will the 300pesos/person boat ride take me? For 1 whole day na yun.. back and forth? Are there any group price for the boat ride? Say we are 5 in the group?
Title: Re: Anawangin Cove, Zambales
Post by: alford on February 26, 2008, 03:53:37 PM
@ Stiffened: The P300 boat ride is already 2-way (will bring you to the island and will fetch you back, even during the next day). Group price? Around P2500-P3000 I think for a bigger boat that can carry 10 people. Contact Vic, our boatman: 0928 453 7121

@ Jekko, Fidgi, Masterjecht: Tks for looking! The colors are really fantastic during sunrise/sunset.

@ Jas: tks! The place is around 3-4 hrs drive from manila, plus 45 min boatride.
