San Antonio, Zambales - A face of the Philippines unlike anywhere else

San Antonio is a second class municipality in the province of Zambales in the Philippines.
Barangay Pundaquit is the jump off point to the many adventure spots in area.

While the rest of the Philippine coastlines are sprinkled with palm trees, Zambales boasts of a refreshing mix of lahar sand, tropical shrubs, pine trees and clear sparkling waters to teases the senses. Let the pics speak for themselves!

Capones Island, also known as Grand Capon or Capon Grande Island (Spanish: Isla de Capon Grande) is a small island approximately 1.9 kilometers. For those who want a short trip without having to camp out or ride the banca too long, this island offers a quick fix.

Anawangin is themost popular of the coves in Zambales due to its close proximity to Pundaquit. The boat ride takes less than 30 minutes from the jump off point.

Getting the equipment ready for the dark.

Nagsasa however, is more than twice the size of Anawangin with a very shallow beach so it is safer for those who cannot swim. The view inmy opinion is twice as breathtaking. The trip by boat takes about an hour.

Check out the calm water and the sunset that is just wow - each one better than the last.

While many campsites now have generators to share some electricity to campers,there is still that thrill of completely roughing it out and using candles for illumination.

The Nagsasa tent city :) During summer months the sand patches disappear under countless tents of tourists who flock to the cove.

The clean air and unobstructed views provide some of the best shots for any photography enthusiast.
