There are actually three islands you can go to when you are in Zambales – Capones, Anawangin and Nagsasa. (Too bad, we weren’t able to go to Anawangin though.)
We stayed overnight in Nagsasa. I like the place since it has amenities like huts, toilets, a supply of fresh water and a sari-sari store (convenience store). Plus, you can hire someone to cook for you like what we did. Definitely hassle-free. Mind you, they cook really well. 🐷
For some reason, pine trees are growing in this island instead of the usual coconuts. I’m not complaining. It suits the place really well.
You can bring tents like what we did. Or if you don’t have one you can just sleep in the huts. Or on the beach. Whatever floats your boat. 🙂
After resting, we went around the island.
I love how the place like flaunt out the mountains. Reminds me of Batanes. At least from what I see in pictures of Batanes (I haven’t been there. Yet. #Bucketlist:)). 🗻
As expected, we took pictures. A lot of pictures. Haha
After going around and having our pictorial, we decided to take a dip. The water is cool. Perfect for relaxing. It’s low tide at that time so it’s pretty fun to “swim”. Especially for someone like me who only knows hot to float on water. Haha.
We just swam and talked about random things and then we witnessed this:
I love sunsets! It feels great talking to friends while looking at this. Good times. The only thing missing are ice-cold beers! Haha.
The place is also good for star-gazing. Below was taken by my friend. Too bad I was not able to take a picture of the stars since I’m already asleep by that time. (Blame the alcohol. Haha.)
You can also have a bonfire by the beach. We planned to have one but we had a drinking session and just ended up talking and goofing around. Bottomline, we forgot to set-up the bonfire. Haha.
We strolled around. And heard the waves. 🌊
After having breakfast, we had a mini hike on one of the peaks.
Me with my friend / photography sensei. Haha.
Nice view of the island from the top.
We took a rest after the climb and then went to Capones Island (see previous post).
I really enjoyed this trip. The place is perfect if you want to disconnect from city life for a while. :)👍
