Anawangin Cove in Zambales

After touring Potipot Island, it’s now time to visit a popular cove in Zambales – the Anawangin Cove.

Anawangin Cove

It took us 30 minutes by boat to reach the cove and it was a scary boat ride because of the waves. We traveled to the island right after a typhoon which explains the big waves and the rough sea.

Upon reaching the island, we put up our tent and started cooking our dinner. It was my first time to sleep in a tent and stay in an island without electricity.

There was not much to do that night, we can not opt for night swimming since the sea is still rough. The presence of the coast guard in the horizon somewhat pacified my fears.

A night in the cove was supposed to be a good time to do star gazing, but because of the typhoon, stars were elusive and are hiding behind the clouds. We decided to sing songs and tell stories so we will not get bored before bedtime.

It was really hard to sleep that night since the wind is howling and we were afraid that our bonfire will go out. So we kept on adding fuel to the fire and as soon as we got sleepy, we entered our tents and slept soundly.

Upon waking up the following morning, the sun was rising at the horizon. We failed to capture the sunrise but we enjoyed walking along the shoreline. The sea is now calm, there was no trace of the typhoon the previous day.

There were several scenic spots in the cove.

And my personal favorite was a couple of rock formations. 🙂

We waited for our boat to arrive so we can safely return to the main island and journey back home.

This experience satisfied my curiosity in terms of spending a night in an isolated cove with no electricity because our digital gadgets and power banks were drained, sleeping in a tent, keeping the bonfire burning almost all throughout the night and boat riding despite the danger of the rough seas right after a typhoon. It was an unforgettable experience but I’m glad I had it. 🙂
