One of A Kind Philippines: Anawangin Cove & Capones Island - Zambales


August 13-14, 2011; Anawangin Cove and Capones Island, Zambales, Philippines

This was the *most affordable, stress-relieving, team building getaway!
*for 14 persons, each of us contributed only Php 1,300 only! Good for one night-two day trip!

After our mid-shift at 12 in the midnight of 13th, we headed to Anawangin Cove, Zambales.

Day 1 (August 13, 2011): Manila to Anawangin Cove, Zambales

Few minutes before our service arrived.

Barangay Pundaquit - Jump off point to Anawangin Cove (before our boat ride to Anawangin Cove)

With Manong Magtatahooooooo..

Boat ride to Anawangin Cove

Views from our boat

Yes! The Anawangin Cove..

After we alight from the boat and before we assembled our tents, we took some photos of the place

This is the best place to photo shoot! (isn't it obvious?haha)

We finally made our tent (our resting place for the whole night)

Minutes later, after we rested from travel, we're out for fun, fun, fun! It's swimming time!

But wait! Photo shoot muna! haha (Naks!)

The waves were criminals!

While half of our team were still busy swimming, we (the other half? haha) went to a swamp few meters from the beach. 
Guess what we did there? Of course, suuuuuper photo shoot! haha :D

Yes! super smile

 Haha, sa pagmamadali sa timer, thanks for Joyce's effort!
Ay, lumubog yun tsinelas ko!
Got it!

Picture, picture again!

Then, swimming again!

Wow! Stolen shot!

This is the perfect place to unwind: "I need some space." (emo-emohan, haha)
When the sun set, we made bonfire and ate some grilled (or smoked) marshmallows.

Picture-picture 'til it gets dawn and go back to our tents to sleep

Day 2 (August 14, 2011): Anawangin Cove to Capones Island to Manila

We woke up at around seven in the morning. Quickly prepared ourselves to our next destination, Capones Island (more or less twenty minutes away from Anawangin by motor boat). +Capones Island is not as a  resort as Anawangin. The Island is good for photo shoots, and the abandoned lighthouse is a must see spot.

Before we get to the lighthouse, we need to climb into about hundred-steps-stone-made-stair.

Finally! Good for us to smile and take more candid photos!

Views from top (imagine how high we climbed just to get here)

This is what I've been telling you. The criminal!, haha, I mean, the abandoned lighthouse!

It's good to bring with you your own jug of water. Climbing is good, and it dehydrates~

More and more shots!
with my super friend Rose

We're on the lighthouse!
I'm on the lighthouse!

+ + + + +
Fresh air, a welcoming accommodation from smiling-faces staffs, a total "province/rural-living", the whole trip had been our time to stress out from loaded works back in urban zone. I doubt why my other countrymen still find other places outside our country.

Anawangin Cove and Capones Island are One of its Kind. #ChoosePhils
