<p>Want a quick beach and island escape from the bustling cities of Metro Manila? Hop on a bus or drive your way to Zambales! Zambales is blessed with pristine attractions for sun worshipers because of its location on the western shores of Luzon, along the West Philippine Sea. It’s home to many coves and islands like Anawangin Cove, Nagsasa Cove, Potipot Island, and Capones Island to name a few. Zambales is also where you can find another top destination in the North, Subic. The active stratovolcano Mount Pinatubo’s summit and crater lake also lies in the Botolan area of Zambales.
