I was there with couple of friends a years ago. We paid Php 1,200.00 for the banca roundtrip. It's better if you know someone there so you can get discounts on their banca. Travel time should be morning so that the sea is calm. Afternoon is not good. Sea wasn't calm when we went there. I was a lil bit... More

My dorm buddies and I spent the night at the cove, we camped by the beach (Editha's Campsite) and we really enjoyed our stay. We also hiked the small hill beside the cove to get a good look of the cove, and the view was breathtaking. the best time to hike is early in the morning or late in the... More

We went there last May with my brother and couple of friends. We're from Valenzuela City. We took a bus(Victory Liner) at Caloocan-Monumento station. 4-5 hours ride. The bus route is from Manila to Iba, Zambales. We got off at San Antonio and sign in their logbook. I guess that's for the visitors of their town. We ride tricycle towards... More

My hopes and expectations were high for Anawangin coz of the great travel stories my friends told me about the place. Well it was a so-so place for me. Plus factors are the serenity of the place, nice beach waters, and the camping experience. Negative factors are the cleanliness of the place which was not properly maintained, and the availability...

Crowded as expected but we did not care. We had able to find ways to enjoy the beach and the trek. The experience is perfect if you have your good friends with you. Check the gale warning before packing you bags.

Whenever I feel so down, sakit ko na ang magpack para pumunta sa isang remote area na walang nakakakilala sakin. Im into solo traveling as well. Salamat Anawangin! Naging tahanan kita nung Aug 23-26. May bundok kna around you, may dagat, may batis, may pine trees pa. Ilang camp mates ang dumaan sa paligid ko... Which made me realized people... More
