Isla Capones

On my way to the Lighthouse, I found these creatures and  they are camera shy. My trek took me 45 minutes, following the arrow guide painted on rocks and climbing to the ropes. 

I always get excited to see olden structures whenever I go somewhere. There's beauty in those time-enduring architecture.

You felt binded by the spells casted by the walls the time you entered the complex. Yes, I say they are consistently spellbinding.

The timeworn well - the story of the boa and the drowned child
is very much alive. Scared? 
I heard the same story in Cape Engano.

The overwhelming Faro de Isla Capones, though in its dilapidated state, the charisma never fail to amuse visitors. 

The responsibility of every visitors and tourists is to protect and 
preserve this structure and this island. This Lighthouse got history to tell 
and it is our duty that this inheritance from the past will still be standing 
and beautiful as it is today.

Anawangin Cove

Anawangin Cove became one of the favorite spots of campers and even the tenderfoot travelers because of its proximity to Metro Manila. 

All you need is 2 days and 1 night to explore this paradise including the nearby spots- the Camara and Capones Islands .

What's interesting is the fact that this isolated beach grew pine trees when Mt. Pinatubo erupted.
There is also a lagoon behind the beach, concealed by the pine trees. 

Going to Anawangin: Take the bus bound Iba in Zambales (Victory Liner Cubao) or any buses en route to Olongapo City then hop on to buses bound Sta. Cruz or Iba, usually non Air Conditioned buses.

Drop off Point at the Municipal Hall of San Antonio and take a tricycle to the fisherman's wharf in Barangay Pundaquit.

Hire an outrigger boat. Ask and observe the fare matrix for the banca, they have fixed rates as suggested by the local government.
