Anawangin : Beach hang out
Aug 08, 2012
I was invited by my friend to visit Zambales, where she owned a small resort in Pundaquit. Always telling me that Zambales coves and beach are nice. As she knew I’m a beach lover. I was a kid when my first step at Zambales. As I remember there are many rocks and I went to a long bridge near to my Uncle house.
Year 2006, when I first mesmerized in Zambales coves, like Anawangin, Nagsasa, Talisayin, Silanguin. Capones and Camara islands, a white beach sand, few minutes by boat from Pundaquit. Since then, it’s one of my fave beach hang-out. From then, every year I visited those islands.
pitch a tent
Camping. A best time for unwind and relax. Make yourself free. No luxury accomodations. Only open cottages are available.
My favorite spot, the swing. It back my memories as a kid, whenever I sit and play at the swing. A great view of the sea, while swinging.
Bring your own hammock. Though there is a minimal hammock at the beach. Still better for you to set up on your own in a pine trees.
Beach Bumming. Getting into the sun. Play freesbie, volleyball. Sunbathing. Like your own beach :)
Photoshoot. Anawangin is best at summer, best for campers, beach lovers and for photographers as well. Where you will see the best mountain ranges. Reflection, pine trees, volcanic ash and gray white sand beach. Be creative :).
Trekking. Find time for trekking. It takes 30minutes. The more you climb high, you will see Anawangin and nearby beach and coves.
Explore and have fun!
Waiting for Sunset. Good weather will perfectly shows the magnificient sunset view. Watch and notice how twilight that can be. Play the rays, make fun in the colors. Have fun of silhouettes.
I always admire the beauty of sunset and sunrise. A feeling of nowhere :).

“I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.”
