We finally have a new DIY ANAWANGIN COVE TRAVEL GUIDE BLOG. This post contains the information you need to plan your next ZAMBALES trip including boat tour rates, camping rates, things to bring to, and things to do at the cove. We also included directions to PUNDAQUIT and sample ANAWANGIN COVE ITINERARY.

We’ve already established that while Metro Manila is lacking in natural scenery, it is surrounded by numerous scenic provinces that easily make up for it. Of all these destinations, our absolute favorite has always been the same for years: San Antonio, Zambales.

San Antonio has everything we adore about a destination: fantastic sights, accessibility, and a unique geology. Yes, its coast is fringed with stunning beaches like many other provinces in the country, but what sets them apart is its composition and history. The beaches here are not strewn with your ordinary fine sand but volcanic ash, straight from the gut of the mighty Mt. Pinatubo. All these factors combined make San Antonio an interesting weekend destination, to say the least.

The once sleepy fishing village of Pundaquit in particular was jerked awake by tourism. Many fishermen today double as boatmen taking tourists to the municipality’s cloistered beaches. And it all started with Anawangin Cove.

UNDERSTANDING ANAWANGIN COVE

When Mt. Pinatubo erupted in 1991, it dumped tons of ash to the shore of San Antonio. What used to be a rocky coast became a supple, shining piece of paradise that seems to have come out of a crazy beach-lover’s fantasy. Over time, agoho trees (sea pine trees) began growing in its ashen slopes, creating a surreal Boracay-meets-Baguio landscape.

Anawangin Cove is just one of the many ash-filled nooks and crannies of San Antonio, but it’s the one that started the tourism wave in the area mainly because it’s the nearest and the most accessible.

Anawangin is not an island; it is part of mainland Luzon. However, it is tucked away behind the mountains that getting there by land requires hours of trekking over an almost bare landscape. The easiest way to reach it is by boat, and the closest major settlement is Brgy. Pundaquit.

Aside from Anawangin Cove, other destinations that can be easily accessed from Pundaquit are the following:

  • Nagsasa Cove
  • Silanguin Cove
  • Talisayin Cove
  • Camara Island
  • Capones Island

You can go straight to Anawangin from Pundaquit, but you can also go island-hopping (or beach-hopping). You just need to make an arrangement with a boatman while you’re in Pundaquit. And yes, you can visit all five on a day tour, provided that you arrive early! I’ve done that before!

Anawangin has no electricity and no mobile signal, which makes it ideal for an escape from the jolts of the city. That said, the truth is, it is no longer a best kept secret. The secret has long been out. Anawangin has been the go-to destination for sun-worshippers from the capital. I, for one, have been here several times. In summer, it can get really crowded and chaotic — some of the boatmen we meet call it Divisoria — but it’s all about the timing.

Speaking of timing…


HOW TO GET TO ANAWANGIN COVE

The first step is to get to Brgy. Pundaquit, which is the jump off point to Anawangin Cove and other San Antonio beaches.

MANILA TO ANAWANGIN COVE

  1. Catch a Victory Liner bus bound to Iba or Santa Cruz, Zambales, and get off at San Antonio Public Market. Travel time: 4-5 hours. Fare is between P270 and P360, depending on which part of Manila you’re coming from.  Alternatively, you may also travel by bus to Olongapo City (P218 from Pasay; P207 from Cubao), and then board another bus to San Antonio (P58).
  2. Take a tricycle to Pundaquit. Travel time: 20 minutes. Fare: P60 if you’re alone; P30 per person if you’re part of a group.
  3. Rent a boat to Anawangin. Travel time: 20 minutes. Boat rates below.

If they’re charging you way over P300 for the bus ride to San Antonio, it could be because they think you’re getting off in Iba. Make sure it’s clear that you’re alighting in San Antonio.

Update: According to a commenter, the bus fare from Manila to San Antonio is now at P360. Tricycle to Pundaquit is P80 for 2 pax or P40 per person.


CLARK AIRPORT TO ANAWANGIN COVE

The nearest commercial airport is Clark (Diosdado Macapagal International Airport). From here, Pundaquit is roughly only 3 hours away.

  1. Ride a shuttle (P100) to Dau Bus Terminal. A cheaper alternative would be taking the jeepney from the main gate, but since it will involve a transfer, the direct shuttle to Dau makes more sense.
  2. Ride the bus to Olongapo. Travel time: 1.5 hours. Fare: P140.
  3. Ride another bus to San Antonio, Zambales. Travel time: 1 hour. Fare: P59.
  4. Take a tricycle to Pundaquit. Fare: P60 if you’re alone; P30 per person if you’re part of a group.
  5. Rent a boat to Anawangin Cove. Travel time: 20 minutes. Boat rates below.

PUNDAQUIT TO ANAWANGIN COVE

Please note that a P20 municipal/environmental fee will be collected upon entering Pundaquit. Once there, you have two options:

  • By Sea. Find a boatman that will take you to Anawangin. Pricing is a bot complicated, so we have created a separate section below.
  • By Land. Trekking is also a good option. Anawangin Cove can be reached after a 4-5-hour hike over Mt. Pundaquit (Jump-off point: Pundaquit), while Nagsasa after a 5-6-trek over Mt. Nagsasa from Sitio San Martin, Subic.

WHERE TO STAY IN ANAWANGIN COVE

Anawangin is now divided into several basic resorts. It has always been like that, but the boundaries are somewhat more pronounced now. Everywhere you’ll find signages and fences, things that were not existent years back.

Anawangin Camp Area

I call them basic resorts because there are hardly any amenities, other than some open-air nipa and bamboo huts. Camping is still the name of the game in Anawangin, Nagsasa, and Silanguin Coves. You can rent a tent on site, but I highly encourage that you bring your own. If you don’t own a tent, buy one. Tent rental is around P500 per night, but you can find a good tent for around P1000!

There are cottages for rent too. Here are the fees you need to know:

ANAWANGIN COVE
Entrance Fee: P50 per person
Overnight Fee: P130 per person
Small Cottage Rental Fee (Day): P200 per kubo
Small Cottage Rental Fee (Overnight): P350 per kubo
Big Kubo Rental Fee (Overnight): P2500 per kubo
Tent Rental Fee: P400-500 per tent

NAGSASA COVE
Entrance Fee: P50 per person
Overnight Fee: P100 per person
Cottage/Hut Rental Fee (Day): P100 per cottage
Cottage/Hut Rental Fee (Overnight): P200 per cottage
Tent Rental Fee: P400-500 per tent

CAPONES ISLAND
Entrance Fee: P350 per person
Overnight Fee: P750 per person


DAY TOUR vs OVERNIGHT STAY

It really depends on which sits higher on your list of priorities: comfort or adventure? I have tried both staying overnight and visiting on a day tour, and they have their own pros and cons.

Staying overnight onsite means you have more time exploring the place. You’ll get to see both the sunset and the sunrise. You’ll get to watch more and brighter stars at night. It is an experience that offers a more intimate time with nature and can be unforgettable in the most positive sense.

However, know that aside from the absence of electricity and cellular signal, another thing to consider is the absence of clean restrooms. Even up to now, the toilets and bathrooms onsite are poorly maintained and in the hygiene department is still, to put it mildly, wanting. I know that’s a deal-breaker for some. I know because now that I am older, it is for me.

And that’s why doing a day tour has its own appeal. You can still see much of what the cove has to offer, but you will need to be back in Pundaquit by sundown. Many choose to spend the night at a resort in Pundaquit for the usual comforts, giving them the best of both worlds, so to speak.


THINGS TO BRING TO ANAWANGIN COVE

If you decide to stay overnight, however, here are some things you need to bring to have an incident-free stay:

  • Tent. Ask your friends. One of them might just own a tent that you can borrow. A medium-sized tent can accommodate up to four people. But if you’re the type that protects your personal space so much, you can also limit it to only 3. It is not advisable to rent tents. If you planning on renting a tent for P500 per night, ditch it and just buy one. There are tents available at DIY shops and sports houses for as low as P1000. Best part is you get to keep the tent and you won’t have to worry about finding one next time.
  • Water. In secluded beaches like Anawangin, water is gold.
  • Can/bottle opener and knife. You will need these to open stuff. Opening things with your teeth is impressive but…
  • Rope. You might need this to create an improvised clothesline so your wet clothes will dry easily.
  • Flashlight. No electricity, baby.
  • Mosquito repellent. Avoid mosquito bites and all the diseases that might come with them.
  • Sunblock. Protect your skin from the sun, of course.
  • Camera. Anawangin offers not just a good place to swim but awesome scenery that you WILL want to capture.

Also, don’t try to bring too many clothes. If you’re staying for only a night, bring just enough. Don’t forget toiletries.


THINGS TO DO IN ANAWANGIN COVE

View from the top!

The best thing about Anawangin Cove is, it is surrounded by other equally breathtaking beaches. Hence, while you’re at it, you might as well consider checking them out. Here’s a list of things you can do at and around Anawangin Cove.

  • Swim and beach bum. Warning, though: Beware of rip currents and spots that go deep abruptly. I had a close call here.
  • Stroll along the inlet. Anawangin has a shallow inlet that cuts across the area and a cute wooden bridge that straddles it. On slow days and in off-peak season, this spot can be truly romantic and calming.
  • Watch the stars. If you have a smartphone, download a stargazing app like Google Sky Map for Android and GoSkyWatch for Apple. Limited or non-existent electricity on the beaches make them ideal places to watch the stars!
  • Climb the nearby hill for an awesome view. If you’re facing the sea, you’ll find a small hill to your left. At the top, enjoy a spectacular view of the cove! According to one of our readers, a P20 entrance fee is now being collected.
  • Visit Nagsasa Cove. It’s Anawangin’s sister cove. Like Anawangin, Nagsasa is also strewn with volcanic ash, bookmarked with picturesque hills, and harbors a shallow inlet. Only better, hehe. Nagsasa has a small waterfall too!
  • Check out Capones Island and Lighthouse. The entrance fee is a bit steep (P350), but Capones Island is lovely too. If you’re staying overnight in Anawangin, you can make a stop here on the way back to Pundaquit on your second day.
  • Drop by Casa San Miguel on your way back. Casa San Miguel is a small museum highlighting the cultural heritage of San Antonio, Zambales. You can access it by tricycle from Pundaquit or San Antonio Public Market. It’s a peaceful, enlightening way to end an adventure.

Nagsasa Cove

MORE TIPS FOR THE POOR TRAVELER

  • Go to market! The San Antonio Public Market stands near the bus stop, where you will be alighting. Before heading to Pundaquit, drop by the market to buy supplies. The market sells meat, seafood, and other ingredients at very affordable prices. If you’re camping overnight in one of the secluded beaches, this is the best place to get raw or fresh ingredients to be grilled or cooked on the beach. They also have Pinoy kakanin like kutsinta, puto, nilupak, and sapin-sapin.
  • There are canteens on the beach. One is Chef Ronnie Canteen (near Merlyn White Beach Resort), which is open 24 hours and serves Pinoy dishes like tapsilog, tocilog, sisig, and pancit. Another is Mabel’s Kitchenette, which offers usual lutong bahay fare (rice + ulam) and merienda favorites like halo-halo, kwek-kwek, turon, and banana que. But expect the prices to be higher than in the main village.
  • Ask your boatman if you could use his bathroom in Pundaquit. The only cure to that sticky feeling after a beach trip is a good shower/bath. Many boatmen open their homes to their clients. Ask your boatman if you can use his or if he knows a place in Pundaquit where you can shower.
  • Don’t forget to bring slippers. Again, the beach is covered in volcanic ash. For some reason, it gets waaaaay hotter than the usual sand especially at noon. It is impossible to walk on it barefoot!

SAMPLE ANAWANGIN COVE ITINERARIES with EXPENSES BREAKDOWN

Below are two sample itineraries. The first one will take you to Anawangin Cove only, while the other will also make a stop at Nagsasa Cove and Capones Island.

Please take note that both of the itineraries and breakdowns assume the following:

  • You are coming from Manila.
  • You are a group of four (4), but the rates below are per person.
  • You are bringing some food for dinner (canned good, cup noodles, etc)!

Feel free to make the necessary adjustment to match your preferences and condition.

ANAWANGIN COVE DAY TOUR ITINERARY

This 1-day itinerary is good for those with limited time.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is Anawangin Cove safe?

I had a pretty incident-free experience, as far as peace and order is concerned. But that’s just my experience. That said, it’s always best to keep an eye on your belongings and never leave your valuables unattended.

Know that there is no clinic on the cove. And make sure you bring insect repellant and first aid.

One thing I also noticed is that there are “biglang-lalim” parts underwater. One moment, you’re standing on sand underwater and the next, you can’t feel it anymore. It happened to me twice. If you’re traveling with kids or non-swimmers, keep an eye on them and never leave them swimming or dipping alone.


When is the best time to visit Anawangin Cove?

Weather-wise, December-April is the safest choice because it’s the driest period. See the graph below by Climate Change Knowledge Portal.

But precipitation levels should not be the only concern here. Anawangin’s proximity to Manila means it can get crowded pretty quickly. The number of arrivals begins rising steadily in March and peaks in April and May, which are the months generally considered “summer season” in the Philippines.

If you can, avoid the weekends!

All things considered, November to February is the best time to visit, at least in my opinion. I have been to Anawangin Cove in February, April, and November. Although I had a fabulous experience each time, I’m not coming back there in April.


Which is better: Anawangin Cove or Nagsasa Cove?

Tough question. Both are great and they seem to be equal on many aspects. Both have a shallow inlet that looks like a small “lake.” Both are bookmarked with small hills that can be climbed for a great view of the stretch. Both are carpeted by sea pine trees.

But I think it depends on what ranks higher on your list of priorities. Anawangin is more crowded, but it’s much closer to the mainland, so it’s easier to get to, which is something that travelers with kids or seniors consider. That said, I think Nagsasa Cove is a little bit better but farther.

      Hi Jade, last time I checked, parking fees are at P100 for day tour and P200 for overnight.

      If you already have a boatman, usually they can also offer you a parking spot near their house either for free or for a lower rate.

  19. Katie says:

    Hi Poor Traveler,
    I’ve just been to Anawangin cove (late Feb 2019) and I wanted to thank you guys for your blog, it was very helpful. My friend and I followed your instructions and we were able to get there and be back in civilization too! From Victory Liner Pasay City terminal, the bus fare to San Antonio was Php 360 (I think) We boarded a bound for Sta. Cruz in Zambales, but got off at San Antonio. We had lunch at the San Antonio Public Market, then bought supplies for an overnight stay. Trike fare from San Antonio public market to Brgy Pundakit was Php 80 (40 each). Prior to going to Brgy Pundakit, I contacted Mr. Harry Balais of LegendHarry Travels – so thank you for your blog and the contact number! The fee for bringing us to Anawangin cove (and bringing us back to Pundakit the next day) was Php 1,800, inclusive of island-hopping tour to Capones and Camara islands during the return trip. We also rented a tent from Mr. Harry (Php 400). Upon entering Brgy Pundakit, people have to pay Php 20/pax as environmental fee. According to Mr. Harry, the boat who brought you to the cove will also be the one to bring you back to Pundakit, so you will be booking them for a 2-way trip. Upon reaching Anawangin Cove, people have to pay Php 130/pax as entrance fee to the island. The small open kubos/huts (with table at the center) cost Php 200/night. There were bigger huts at the other end of the cove, near the “lake” (enclosed huts wherein you can sleep) but we didn’t ask for the price. To enter the area where you can hike up the small hill, there’s an additional fee of Php 20/pax. We brought our own water, food and drinks for an overnight stay. We also had a flashlight, since there’s still no electricity in the “tent area”. However, at night, there are solar-powered “street lights” near the beach and kubos/huts where they sell food/drinks. Some groups brought their own pots/kalderos and cooking stuff (for grilling) or butane stoves. Again, many thanks for this blog and I hope the updated info that I gave will be helpful to other people planning a DIY trip. Cheers and more power to you!

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Katie! Thanks for sharing this! Glad we were able to help!

      We’ll update our post too!

  20. Giecyl Joy Temblor says:

    Hi! Your blog is such a big help po. Been looking for blog that will discuss their trip nang sobrang detalyado until I found yours. Thank you po. Just have few questions po, we are group of 5-6 and we’re planning to visit Zambales on October 2019 but I think it would be better if we visit by November same year. And we’re gonna bring a private car po and we’re planning to stay overnight (Anawangin) (1) may safe and designated parking space po ba dun? (2) and nabanggit niyo po na doable yung island hoping for Nagsasa, Anawangin, Capones and the other two as long as maaga, gaano po kaaga? Like 7 am po ba pwede? And may available bangkero na po nun? Thank you so much po.

    • Yoshke Dimen says:

      Hi Giecyl,

      1. I think meron naman po. Commute po kasi ako pag pumupunta dun madalas. Once lang kami na may kotse pero sa resort kami nag-park.

      2. Kung kasama ang Silanguin Cove, mas maaga pa siguro. Kami umalis kami around 6am.

  21. Reina says:

    Hi Good day :)
    We are planning to go there on may 4&5 , okay lang ba na magsama ako ng 3yrs old na baby?? safe po kaya dun? Thanks :)

      Hi Reina,

      That’s a complicated question. I think peace-and-order-wise, safe naman. But if you choose to go, bring insect repellant and first aid. There are no clinics in the cove. And based sa experience ko, yung tubig, biglang-lalim sya so don’t let them be alone sa beach even for a moment.

      Pwede naman pero maghahanap ka pa dun. Or hanap ka ng mga joiner tours online.
