Silanguin Cove: getting Hooked on Zambales
My day was already made even before our boat hit the shore. We felt a minor tug from one of the fishing rods that stuck into the air like flag-less poles. Randy, our boatman for the day, rushed to the front as well as reeled in the morning’s very first catch: a wahoo. “Tanguigue in Tagalog,” Harry, one more companion, translated.
Our destination for that day was Silanguin Cove, the farthest of the recently “rediscovered” beaches in San Antonio, Zambales. While it bears lots of similarities with its neighbors, Silanguin is absolutely the strange guy out. While Nagsasa, Talisayin, as well as Anawangin are covered with volcanic ash, Silanguin is strewn with routine sand. It is not white-white. It’s not even beige. It is gray at best. however don’t judge the beach by its color. It has the most sensational backdrop. Reddish hills frame the cove, a stark contrast to their virid feet.

Two dogs dashed toward our boat as well as greeted us with unwelcoming barks. “They belong to the other resort,” Randy said. “They’re still not that utilized to visitors.” É compreensível. Anawangin may have a lot more than its share of tourists, however Silanguin is still nearly unheard of. If you want peace of mind, this may be the very best San Antonio beach for you.
Even the waves right here are much friendlier, much gentler than those that tickle its neighbors. The sand doesn’t get as well hot under the sun, a issue I have with the ashes of Nagsasa as well as Anawangin. A few fundamental “resorts” line the coast. They offer fundamental accommodations (and utilize of restrooms) as well as paluto services for a fee. (Entrance is normally at PHP150.) Don’t expect contemporary amenities. Silanguin has been isolated from the rest of mainland Luzon by an expansive mountain variety as well as sprawling forests.

The southern ridge of the cove extends out to the sea as well as is jotted with a small, rocky island, which is likewise named after the area, Silanguin. The cove faces the questionable West Philippine Sea. A Philippine navy ship roams around the area during my visit. Its rich marine resources likewise offer a bounty for regional fishermen. Lately fishing excursions have taken form, with the boatmen likewise enabling guests to fish for leisure.
