ZAMBALES DAY TOUR ISLAND HOPPING GUIDE 2017

Sharing with you guys a budget travel island hopping in Zambales for just one day!

We packed our things and left at 3:00 in the morning. After a couple of exhausting rides, we finally arrived at Pundaquit beach at 8:30 AM (see below itinerary). We met Kuya Johnny, owner of the boats we rented who provided us with tools we need for cooking. After gathering all the things we need, we set forth to Capones.

Actually, a typhoon came a day before our trip so we hesitated if we will push through. I contacted Kuya Johnny and advised me that waves were strong the day before our trip. He told me that he’ll watch out if it will persist. We almost thought to just reschedule our plan, but thank God and goodness and all the lords, typhoon Salome left.

CAPONES ISLAND

This island is my fave! I was awestruck by white sands, crystal clear water and rock formations.
