Explore Camara and Capones Island

San Antonio, Philippines

Description

Added by Tiffany Young

Give yourself a few hours to do nothing - you know you want to.

When going to the Philippines, people often think about going to beautiful tourist destinations like El Nido on Palawan Island, but if you're looking to be budget friendly and more local the providence of Zambales in Central Luzon can still give you crystal clean waters, green mountains, and a ton of sun for totally affordable.

Camara and Capones Island are the closest from Pundaquit Beach. Camara is about a 15 minute boat ride out from the beach is an island that covers during high tide. Then another 10 minute boat ride away is the bigger island, Capones. We paid 1,200 PHP total (600 each) to go to both islands and with no set time on how long we were out there for. This time of the year (August) isn't very popular and for most of the time we had the island to ourselves!

Capones Island has more to explore, we however, just wanted to chill at the beach and chat about life. But, if you wanted to explore there was a lighthouse you could go see at one end of the beach and one of the boatmen would've guided you. During season, this island also has a resort opened.

If you're looking for specific direction read this!

NOTE: We booked our boats through the owner of the resort we were staying at. But because it's business in the Philippines, I'm pretty confident you could roll up and ask to pay for a ride out. Or as a resort owner to get you a boat.
