Anawangin Hill Viewdeck (Zambales, 80+ MASL)

At the Viewdeck on the hilltop of Anawangin Hill (March 2013)

Located in barangay Pundaquit in the town of San Antonio, Zambales, Anawangin cove is one of the prime quick-getaways from busy Metro Manila. An isolated cove nestled within the Pundaquit Range, the beach is off the grid - no electricity, no cell phone signal and is miles away from the nearest road. However, far from being a deterrent, the lack of such connection to the outside world is what actually adds flavor and excitement to the place. Hordes of beach bums and weekend warriors flock to its beaches to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

To the south-west of the beach is a hilly area which actually forms part of the slopes of Mt. Pundaquit. A visit to the beach is incomplete without a quick hike to the hilltop to get a glimpse of the great views of the sandy beaches of the cove.
