I spent ten days backpacking around five different destinations in Luzon, Philippines on a tight budget. It's cheap. Really, really, cheap! And each trip gave me a new, exciting feel. Fueled by a few wonderful secret stories kept in my jar of travel memories, my wanderlust definitely doesn't stop here.
Normally, I spend around 15,000 to 30,000 Philippines pesos (US$300-$600) good for three to five days only on domestic trips. You may think that's fairly reasonable. Maybe if in other countries, but here in the Philippines you can spend less and save more money. Why do you think some famous I ...
Being just a college student, who school-study-home, is too boring (in my opinion) if I'm not going to go on adventure once in a while. And because our semester ended so early than what we expected, my blockmates-friends planned an out of town trip. If I remembered it correctly, my blockmates-friends I was talking about planned to go to Baguio last year but sadly, I didn't pursue it. I don't know. But I really regret not joining them, and because of that, I promised to myself that this year I will come whenever they invited me and wherever it will be. And so it is.
This is my first ever cam ...
Just 15-20 minutes away from Pundaquit, Camara Island is a good first beach stop in Zambales. It's perfect for a quick dip and a few photo ops. I can't imagine staying here long due to the lack of shade and non existent facilities (no cr, no tables, no chairs). Most people would pick Capones over Camara but since the beach in Capones has started charging a relatively expensive entrance fee, I can imagine Camara gaining a bit of popularity. Entrance is free, but the only way to reach this island is via boat and that you will have to pay for.

People who visit Pundaquit Island in San Antonio, Zambales are usually up for a camping either in Anawangin or Nagsasa Cove. For their island hopping, they will go to Capones Island and just pass by at the Camara Island. For our trip last week in Zambales, we decided to do it differently and so we just spent almost a whole day in Camara Island. And you know what? We enjoyed it so much. We moved around the island for some picture-taking and then stayed at the perfect spot on the beach fronting the grand view of Zambales Mountain Range.
Most of the time, it felt like we have the whole beach j ...

Hi everyone! My friends and I just recently got back from our trip to San Antonio, Zambales to climb Mt. Cinco Picos, my 46th mountain, and chill at the beach below it in Silanguin Cove with a side trip to Camara Island and Pundaquit Beach. Yup, we pretty much visited a lot of places and it felt like such a long and relaxing vacation even though we were only there for two days and one night.
