Pundaquit is a fishing village in San Antonio, Zambales. It is the gateway to the province’s different coves (Anawangin, Silanguin, Talisayin, Nagsasa) and islands (Camara, Capones).

There are cottages and resorts in the area if an overnight camping at the coves is not possible. You may check this out for a list of resorts. I stayed at Wild Rose Beach Inn with my family when we went there last March because they have a nice swimming pool.

For boat trips to the islands and coves, I suggest that you head to the beach and talk directly to the boatmen. Resorts give flat rates and get commission from them. This is also to ensure that the boat you are going to use is big enough to accommodate your group. Three men from Kuya Mike Bactad’s crew sailed with us. We were ten in a big boat.

Victory Liner Caloocan passes through San Antonio, Zambales daily.
