Anawangin Cove and Capones Lighthouse – Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales


Anawangin Cove Pundaquit Zambales, anawangin blog, anawangin pictures, how to go to anawanginAfter about 3-hours of travel from Manila, we reached the Pundaquit town of Zambales.  The sound of smashing waves along the shoreline is Pundaquit's way of welcoming its guests.

Anawangin Cove can be reached via a 30-minute boat ride from the Pundaquit proper or a traverse hike through its mountains and cliffs. 

The crescent shaped Anawangin Cove covered with pine trees has off-white lahar sand brought by the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in the 90’s.  Behind the trees is a stream flowing to the sea giving visitors another place to enjoy.

The absence of resorts or other developments has preserved the natural beauty of Anawangin that became a favorite relaxing destination for anyone who wants to escape the hustles of the city.  One can go for a day tour or camp for the night.  Anyone may bring along a camping equipment or have it arranged with the guide.  Take caution in observing safety, in preserving nature and in respecting the camper next to you.

On the next day, before we headed back to the town proper, we visited the Capones Lighthouse of Capones Grade Island.  Like the other lighthouses in the country, the beacon serves as a guide to international vessels that’s approaching the Philippine coastline.  Remembering our history by the sight of this old landmark is a perfect way to end this trip....

    1. in http://www.pundaquit.com/attractions-in-pundaquit/anawangin-cove.html article, it says:

      It is unfortunate that structures such as cement houses or buildings can’t be built behind its shores, due to the fact that seasonal rain and monsoon softens the ground beneath it and waves brought about by the typhoons can easily reach the main campsite. Also, a stream flows from the mountains and through it’s banks during the rainy season.

      -- well, better be safe always :)
