Special Trip

Trippers Beach Bumming @ Anawangin Cove, Capones Island,  Camara Island

Anawangin Cove is a crescent shaped cove with a pristine white sand beach with the unique and unusual riddle of tall pine trees flourishing round its vicinity.

Capones Island and a couple of other smaller islands (the Camera Islands) lie a few kilometers from the shores of Pundaquit, Zambales. The Camera islands are 2km offshore and Capones is 3 kilometers farther (5.2 km offshore). Capones and Camera are known for their white beaches, speckled with colorful crushed coral. Clear turquoise waters held us spell-bound. High rock cliffs beckon rappellers. Capones is known for an old Spanish-era lighthouse that brings visitors back in time.

Capones Lighthouse, Zambales

My side trip in Capones Island is such an amazing adventure. The first time that I visited a lighthouse was in Macau and from there on I promise my self that I will visit more lighthouse in the future, this is because of the magnificent beauty on top (over looking the whole island, a scenic moment that you only see in postcards).

Capones Island Lighthouse
The light from the Faro de Punta Capones, or Capones Island Lighthouse, has been used for more than a century to search for and guide ships into Subic and Manila Bays. The west coast of Manila has regular runs of shipping heading to and from the Philippines northern neighbors.

The lighthouse is perched 53 m above sea level. The actual lighthouse tower is 15.3m high and the views from up here are sensational.

It took seven (7) years to build the Capones Lighthouse and it went into operation in 1890.

Now a days the lighthouse is in need of some tender loving care, the caretakers house which forms part of the lighthouse structure looks very decrepit and in urgent need of repairs. The light is powered by the sun, with solar cells in charge of ensuring safe passage to passing ships.

If you get out to Capones Island make the effort and climb to the Lighthouse, I know it is a bit of a hike from the beach, but its all worth it.

How do I get to Capones Island?
As I’ve said a while ago Capones Island is just a side trip so you could refer to my trip to Anawangin because we just add a little amount to our boatman(bangkero) just to get into the island. Capones Island does not have any infrastructure, no resorts, no hotels, no shops, just you and the beauty of Capones Island. So I strongly suggest that you should camp on Anawangin because there’s no trees on the shores of Capones Island and you might as well enjoy the beauty of the camping scene in Anawangin.

Day 1

  • Assembly at Victory Liner, you will be riding the bus going to Zambales but your destination is San Antonio (about 1hour – 2hour ride)
  • In San Antonio you can have your early breakfast, lunch, or dinner (depending on your trip) and also you can buy food that you can cook in the market near the bus stop.
  • After that you will take a Trike to Pundaquit beach (about 20min. – 30min ride).

  • Once you arrive you are now free to relax and explore the place.

Day 2

  • After enjoying the beautiful scenery you are now ready to leave the island? By the way there is no boat on the Island so better ask the boat man to pick you up (anytime you want)so you could go back in Pundaquit beach.
  • (Just a tip)You could also ask the boat man to tour you in any near by island.
  • From Pundaquit beach you will ride again trike goint to San Antonio bus station.
