Daytour in Anawangin Cove, San Antonio Zambales (1 of 3)

Biglaan lang. My cousins and I were eating and chatting when the idea of going to Anawangin came in mind. It's an old habit of us to always plan for something, then hindi naman matutuloy. Drawing lang.

Aba at seryoso pala! Matutuloy pala kami. Well siguro dahil summer vacation ni Nikki at kasama ang dalawang friends niya kaya tuloy na tuloy na kami. Day tour nga lang dahil puro kami girls at medyo hindi kami prepared. Wala kaming tent and my cousins, upon learning that no cellphone signal there, ayaw mag overnight.

We left Santa Rita at 3:00am. Iwas traffic because it's Saturday and we reached San Antonio at around 5:00am. Dahil medyo madilim pa, tambay muna kami sa 7/11. Imagine a small sleepy town with 7/11! Effects of tourism. 

Dahil dalawang beses ng nakapunta si Nestle kaya siya ang naatasang bumaba at makipag negosasyon sa mga bangkero. Rates can go from Php 200-350 per head depende kung ilan kayo. Mas mura if you are in group. We got ours at Php 250.00 per head (8 pax) with Camara and Capones Island sidetrip. Don't worry about your vehicle as there were many parking spaces in Pundaquit.

There are two ways to reach Anawangin Cove. By 25-40 minute boat ride or by trekking Mt. Pundaquit for 4-5 hours.

We were on our way at sunrise time. We decided to have the sidetrip to Camara and Capones first before heading to Anawangin Cove.

While waiting for our boat, we saw a fisherman who sells pusit for Php 100.00 per kilo.

Our first stop is Camara Island. It is the nearest from Pundaquit. It's not ideal for swimming kasi medyo mabato. You can see here some rock formations. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of it. It's perfect for snorekling.

After spending 20 minutes of wandering and picture taking, we headed to our next destination, Capones Island.

I wanted to go to the lighthouse. It reminds me of the destination I wish to visit. Batanes. Hindi kami nakapunta sa may lighthouse. Sa kabilang bahagi ng island kami dumaong. Next time, hindi ko na palalampasin ang pagkakataon na maakyat and lighthouse.

Look what I found...

Too bad, maraming tao talaga ang walang disiplina. Iniiwan na lang ang kalat kahit saan.

I also found cute shell and pusong bato!

Marami rin kaming napulot na mga shells. After spending 15 minutes, its time to go to our real destination, Anawangin Cove.
