Silanguin Cove in San Antonio, Zambales



2018 • 04 • 24

Silanguin Cove is the farthest of all the newly rediscovered secluded beaches in San Antonio, Zambales. While Nagsasa and Anawangin Coves are littered with volcanic ash, Silanguin is strewn with light grey sand. It isn’t as fair as the others, but the surrounding landscape makes up for it. Silanguin is enclosed by reddish mountains, a surreal backdrop. It is also blessed with shallower waters and friendlier waves, making swimming a lot more enjoyable.

Don’t miss: Fishing. Some boatmen in Pundaquit now offer fishing tours in the rich waters of Zambales. Just inform them in advance so they could prep the gears.


Directions

Nearest airport: Clark, Manila

How to get there: Travel by bus to Iba or Sta. Cruz, Zambales and get off at San Antonio Public Market (P250-P270). Take a tricycle to Pundaquit (P30). From here, boat tours that will make a stop at Silanguin and even Nagsasa COve and Capones Island cost P2000-P2500. Alternatively, you can also get here by boat from Subic, but entails a longer travel time.


Where to Stay

Camping is the way to go, but there are accommodations for rent at Puerto Silanguin. A two-room hut is available for P1500 per night.

You can also stay at a hotel in Pundaquit and just visit Silanguin on a day tour.
