It's better the second time around! I went to this place last April 2014 with my family and i really loved it. The trip was unplanned and wasn't able to prepare for food, etc. nevertheless, the experience of camping by the beach, under the pine trees is surreal indeed! It was my second time in this place, the first one... More

Anawangin has been destroyed. For those like me who have been captivated by this cove that we kept coming back for years, you’d be severely disappointed. Look at the pictures taken in April 2014. The entire shoreline is now fenced, the whole length of the cove was partitioned by one claimant after another, each charging for picnic fees, tent fees,... More

After Capones Island we went to Anawangin Cove, there's an entrance fee of 50 pesos. When the time we've been there a lot of people stayed in the campsite. It's a most popular destination for the campers because the background surrounded by pine tree and green nature. We really enjoy the calm water and with a pristine white sand beach.

We rent a Boat at a discount. The boat took us to nearby islands first before we stayed at Anawangin. We only contributed P200-P260 each for the boat (15 people). Anawangin cove is nice however, for a first timer like me.. I thought that it has a sand that's white and so on.. The nearby islands though are a beauty.... More

I just got from Palaui island and this trip is more of trying to experience the fun of camping- the survival mode. And Anawangin did not fail me and we survived. A cove with lined up pine trees is not typical for a beach. And the camp area is a site to behold with a lake in the middle that... More

We avail an overnight public tour to see Anawangin. The package included a trek to Mt. Pundaquit, overnight stay at Anawangin cove, and a bit of island hop to Capones island and a nearby island for a quick splash before going back to where we jumped off. It was a long trip from Manila going to Zambales, and I suggest... More

If you are planning an outing with your family not having to leave far away from Manila, then this is the place for you. We left Manila at around 7 in the morning, with couple of stopovers we reached Pundaquit at around 11am, not bad though there was some buildup in San Marcelino and we had hard time finding Pundaquit...

the good: long stretch of swimmable beach; a good feel in the pine forest at the back the bad: very crowded place already; locals (or maybe crooks) have started to fence off areas near the beach; a lot of people don't clean up after leaving; boat parking is not regulated; vendors abound
