Experience Silanguin Cove's beautiful unspoiled nature. It is free from all the tourist crowd.
Silanguin Cove in Zambales is the farthest cove to explore from Subic-Olongapo, and Barangay Pundaquit in San Antonio, Zambales' jump off. Others prefer to go by land, climbing Mt. Cinco Picos traverse to Silanguin. Whichever you prefer, both have nice scenic views to feed your hungry eyes.
Labor day long weekend was a matic call for the beach. From the original plan to catch waves at Crystal Beach, we ended up to far most cove of Zambales from Pundaquit, Silanguin Cove.
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.
