Anawangin Cove, Pundaquit

3.4
#1 of 11 in Outdoors in Zambales Province
A sweeping crescent of soft volcanic sands framed by evergreen pines and cerulean sea, Anawangin Cove welcomes you to a quiet sanctuary of natural beauty. Sitting beneath the dramatic backdrop of Mount Pinatubo, the terrain here was forever changed after the 1991 eruption, said to have contributed to the soft sand and flourishing forest. Rent a boat and explore the cove, or take a slow ramble through leafy trails before refreshing yourself with a dip in crystal clear waters. You're likely to see bonfires along the beach in the evening, with the forest providing a perfect spot for camping. A visit to Anawangin Cove represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pundaquit trip builder to plot your vacation.
