In case you haven’t noticed, your barkada has been planning to go to the beach for months now. You’re all too busy and can’t seem to find a time when you’re all available. Ang dami ng long weekends na dumaan, but until now, drawing pa rin yung mga plans niyo.
But sabi nga nila, “kapag biglaan, mas natutuloy.” Why don’t you go on a spontaneous beach trip to Zambales? Yes, it’s possible to enjoy the beach for just one day!
To help you out, we came up with an itinerary you can follow:
4:00 a.m. - Board a bus from Cubao to San Antonio, Zambales (P348). The bus ride will take around five hours. You can buy tickets here.
9:30 a.m. - Board a boat from Pundaquit to Anawangin Cove, which is the nearest and most accessible beach area in San Antonio.
This boat can also take you to Capones Island and will cost you around P1,500 per boat—if you’re a group of five, you would only have to contribute P300 per person. Note: Make sure to tell your bangkero what time you plan on leaving the next day so they can pick you up from Anawangin.
10:30 a.m. - Time to swim and take photos by the beach!
12:00 p.m. - Have lunch in Anawangin.
1:00 p.m. - Board the boat going to Capones Island, which is a generally less-crowded beach where you can chill and just take in the beautiful scenery.
4:30 p.m. - Head back to Anawangin Cove.
6:00 p.m. - Eat dinner.
9:00 p.m. - Start a bonfire and stargaze by the beach. After all the fun kwentuhan, head back to your tent for a good night’s sleep.
The next day, wake up early to catch your boat going to Pundaquit. From there, ride a tricycle back to San Antonio, where you can board a bus going back to Manila.
See, you can totally head to the beach even if you’ve only got 24 hours to spare! What are you waiting for? Send this to your barkada GC to let them know that you’re going to Zambales this weekend. ;)
