Hello Weekend: 4 Other Types of Breaks You Can Have in Zambales

It’s Monday and there’s nothing worse than your friends clogging the feed first thing in the morning. #Zambales? With 247 photos? Again? Now if you want to catch some action of your own up north, Zambales is only about four hours from Manila and driving it is just as convenient as commuting. And isn’t all about surfing or the beach. They’ve got much more in store for you.

Come next Monday and it’ll be your turn to clog the feed.



This is the secret to how not to drain your wallet on a trip to Zambales. Of course you can still buy fish straight from the market but nothing beats heading out to sea (with the locals, of course) and literally catching your next meal.


Mountain Biking

For mountain bike fanatics, the mountain ranges off Castillejos and San Marcelino offer some of the toughest (yet most) scenic trails on two wheels. Ride with a group—you wouldn’t want to end up living the Filipino version of 127 hours.



Zambales isn’t just for adrenaline junkies, you can always bring family and friends over and simply camp out under the full moon and the Ago-o trees.



Off the coast of San Antonio lay a number of islands and secluded coves like the famous Capones Island, Anawangin Cove and may more.  You might want to  book a trip before the Typhoon season comes in around June-July.
