Had a good time swimming and walking the beach of Anawangin. Fine sand, no rocks or broken corals, very clear water. We went there on a Monday and it was quiet. Many people go there to camp overnight. Seeing pine trees in the beach really makes you wonder why pine trees are here instead of coconut trees. Very minimal fee... More

Very cheap entrance fee. 100Php- overnight and 50Php- day tour. We camped overnight, we slept in a tent and it was fun because it's a new experience. Do not worry because there will be people camping with you too, it is a popular place for camping. There is no electricity. Bring your own lights and lamps. You cook your own... More

What I love the most in Anawangin Cove was the fact that there is no electricity, no cellphone and internet signal and everything is back to the basics; Cook on a camp fire if you don't have a butane gas stove, eat with bare hands if you don't have any utensils and entertain yourselves with funny stories if you're bored....

We were indeed amazed by the beautiful beach in anawangin. Very refreshing and relaxing! This is a very affordable way of having a vacation. We searched over the internet if we can find a boatman than can arrange our tour in anawangin. Luckily, we contacted kuya jay-r and he arranged everything from boatride to tents and supplies of mineral water... More

Like: relaxing place, a place to be close to nature Dislike: can be crowded specially during peak season, limited picnic tables, food and drinks are pricey, almost double the regular price

Pro's: super secluded, not crowded (off peak), no electricity, green, quiet, dark, mysterious, perfect getaway, get in touch with nature... Con's: somewhat far, crowded (peak), few trash, waves, no life guard, one sari sari store. Transpo is between P1,000-P2,000 (get to know the locals and haggle). Trip can be dangerous (waves, current, trek). Travel in the morning (like 6am). Bring... More

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
