Zambales is destination that can easily be accessed via road trip or bus from Metro Manila, making it an ideal destination for a quick getaway during the weekend. It is the second largest province in Central Luzon. Its beaches are the main tourist attractions but the establishments near the shore are frequented by visitors too. The shores are not as developed but it has a laidback atmosphere that provides the much-needed quiet vibe for anyone who wants to take it slow.

Potipot Island is surrounded by pristine waters and white sand beach. There are only a few cottages in the area while the rest is nothing but pure nature. Tourists can take advantage of the serene environment in the island by sunbathing by the shore, taking a stroll, or swimming in the clear aquamarine water.

Anawangin Cove is another lost paradise in Zambales. Near its shores is a forest of pine trees surrounded by majestic mountains. Only accessible by boat or a 6-hour trek, Anawanging Cove is not only a great vacation spot but also a haven for photographers and sightseers because of its one-of-a-kind tropical scenery.

But there is also some excitement to discover in Zambales. The municipality of Subic used to be the site of an American naval base, which is now known as the Subic Bay Freeport Zone. It boasts numerous entertainment centers such as the marine park Ocean Adventure, which features dolphins and sea lion shows. Zoobic Safari offers a jeep ride where visitors can have close but safe encounters with tigers. There are also several shopping centers and duty free stores in Subic Bay Freeport Zone.



By Land
Zambales is only three to four hours from Manila by land. You can either drive your own car or commute to get there. If you opt to go on a road trip with your friends, take the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) route. For commuters, there are many bus lines in Cubao and Pasay that can take you to Zambales. Victory Liner, Genesis, and Five Star are just three of these bus lines that serve some destinations of this province.

 
How to Get Around
By Jeep
There are public utility jeepneys (PUJs) that roam the main roads and highways of Zambales. They're the most common mode of public transportation among locals. Riding the jeepney is also a good option, especially if you're traveling on a shoestring budget.

By Taxi
You can also find taxis serving some areas of Zambales, especially around Subic. Riding a taxi may be costlier but it helps if you want a more comfortable mode of getting around or if you're not very familiar with your destination.

By Tricycle
Tricycles are another mode of transportation in Zambales. You can ride a tricycle to get to a certain point in town or to another town or city. A tricycle is a good option if you want to reach a destination that is not served by jeepneys.

What to See
Landmarks
Zambales' rich historical and cultural heritage is reflected in its many landmarks.

One of the best known is the ancestral house turned museum of the late President Ramon Magsaysay. It is located in the town of Castillejos. In addition, a monument and historical marker can be seen in the provincial capital of Iba, his town of birth.

If you want to know where Olongapo City's name was derived, you can visit the Ulo ng Apo Monument. It is the depiction of the legend wherein a severed head of a wise old man (Ulo ng Apo) was found by a young boy.

When you go to Capones Island, make sure to visit the historic lighthouse there. It was established in the 1890s and features a remodeled tower.

Of course, Zambales also features two Spanish-era Roman Catholic Churches. These are the San Andres Church in Masinloc and St. Augustine Church in Iba.

Natural Attractions
Zambales is also the perfect destination for nature lovers. The province is home to a rich variety of natural wonders.

Zambales is fast becoming a favorite beach destination by visitors from Metro Manila because of its wondrous islands and coves. The municipality of San Antonio is visited for its beaches whose white sand-and-ash shores were the result of Mt. Pinatubo's eruption in 1991. These are the Anawangin Cove, Talisayin Cove, and Nagsasa Cove. There's even a waterfall in Nagsasa if you want to bathe in fresh waters. If you want a beach with natural sand, you can head to Silanguin Cove. In addition to these beaches, you can also visit Capones Island, with its famous lighthouse, and Camara Island which is famous for surfing. Make sure to avail of an island hopping tour if you want to see all of these tropical wonders of the town.

More than the amazing beaches and islands of San Antonio, you'll also be amazed with the beauty of Potipot Island's white sand shore in the town of Candelaria and the underrated beach in Magalawa Island in Palauig. Its peacefulness and beauty are sure to captivate beach bums. Just a boat ride away from Magalawa Island is San Salvador Island, the location of a giant clam or taklobo sanctuary.

Mountaineers would be glad to know that Zambales has some mountains that offer trekking like Mt. Tapulao, Mt. Cinco Picos, and of course, Mt. Pinatubo. Mt. Pinatubo is famous for its cataclysmic eruption in June 15, 1991, which is considered as the second-largest eruption of the 20th century.

Other natural wonders in Zambales that are worth a visit include the waterfalls of Barangay Sta. Barbara in Iba and Bunga Cave in Candelaria.

Man-Made Attractions
Unknown to some, Zambales also has some well-known destinations for surfing. These include the beach in San Felipe's Barangay Liw-liwa and Crystal Beach in San Narciso. These places are great alternatives to the other surfing destinations in the country like La Union and Baler.

Meanwhile, for those who are looking to try some watersports, there are plenty of them in Subic Bay. You can go water skiing, parasailing, kayaking, scuba diving, wreck diving, and even flyboarding. Of course, while you're in Subic, make sure to visit two of its family-friendly attractions—Zoobic Safari and Ocean Adventure.

If you are in San Antonio, don't miss a visit to Casa San Miguel. Apart from its lovely nature surroundings and quirky decor, its Museum of Community Heritage houses some important artifacts and memorabilia that will provide you with some insights about the culture and history, not only of Brgy. San Miguel, but also of the whole town of San Antonio.

Events and Festivals
Zambales is also known for its yummy mangoes, which is why it celebrates the Dinamulag Festival, also known as the Zambales Mango Festival in Iba. The feast is held usually every March or April and features street parades and lots of competitions like mango-eating and mango decorations.

Safety and Security
Of course, practicing vigilance, not only in Zambales, but also in all of the places you visit is a must. Make sure to survey your surroundings and keep your valuables in a safe place.
