Silanguin Cove or Bay News
Silanguin Cove is one of the isolated beaches situated in the province of Zambales, 3-4 hours land travel from Manila. Since the province is facing the West Philippine Sea, it is known for its gorgeous fine white or grayish beaches with the amazing slopes of the mountains on the background such as Crystal Beach, Anawangin, Talisayin and Nagsasa Cove. Who doesn't know about the Scarborough Shoal, it is just few kilometers from here.
A short visit in Silanguin Cove made me realize the differences among the coves in San Antonio Town. Being the farthest, it takes one and a half hours to get there passing Anawangin, Talisayin, and Nagsasa coves. Its shoreline is stretched from north to east for about a little more than a kilometer, perfect for a morning walk. Agoho Trees are also typical in the area that give shades to beach campers pitching their tents. There are a few nipa huts in the area for rent, the Puerto Silanguin being the favorite.

These coves are the most accessible though heavily congested and developed.

Artist Jason Mraz once shared, "My home isn't about being grounded in one corner of the planet. It's about being in love and being lost in the middle of an amazing adventure, witnessing sunbursts over horizons of every time zone". I couldn't agree more… Spot on words that have never been spoken.
