In 1991, the baneful Mt. Pinatubo eruption happened. It devastated many lives and properties mostly in Central Luzon, Philippines.
Nevertheless, the calamity turned a particular cove in Zambales province from a dreary place to one of the most sought tourist destinations in the Philippines today.
My friends, this is Anawangin Cove, an ultimate outdoor experience getaway.
Anawangin’s white coast is actually a volcanic ash and sand mixture. On the area, Agoho trees were seen sprawling.
If coming from Manila in a budget tour, you can reach this paradise by bus and boat. The former usually takes around 3-4 hours while the latter is about half an hour, depending on the road traffic, wind and sea conditions.
Get off the bus at San Miguel Municipal Hall in San Antonio, Zambales. Ride a tricycle and ask the driver to bring you to the drop-off point for boat rides to Anawangin Cove.
My visit to Anawangin Cove is quite different from my other travels. Our two days and a night were spent preciously together. I must say that having no electricity, mobile phone signal and/or WIFI succor a privy bonding.
Since I would like to show you how to pretty loose yourself, let me chunk the adventure in three settings:
Tourists from all walks-of-life drive to Anawangin Cove to relax.
Yes, they come to the secluded island and eventually go home jack-packed with winsome retrospection.
Well, for us this one…
was the most heart-popping blast!
