Time flies really fast. My 15-year old daughter is super excited for her first-ever overnight trip without us. She’ll be travelling somewhere in South Luzon with her friend, the only daughter of my husband’s cousin. At first we are hesitant to allow her to join. But then we thought this might be her much-needed break with more than 2 years stucked in the four corners of our home. And all of them in the group are already vaccinated against Covid-19. So we finally said yes to her early summer vacay.
Having said that, I was wondering if we could go on a beach trip or camping this summer. We used to go on out-of-town trips once or twice a year, during summer before the pandemic changed our lives. Since I’m checking out possible places we could explore this summer, I want to share them with you.
Let’s start with the best camping sites near Metro Manila:
Anawangin Cove (San Antonio, Zambales)
I’ve been to Anawangin few years ago, together with my officemates. It was my of the memorable and most relaxing trip. I wanna go back, this time with my family.
San Antonio has many beautiful coves where tourists enjoy camping and beach bumming. One of those is the Anawangin Cove. The shores are covered with fine, gray sand and the water are clear blue – perfect from swimming and snorkeling.
With the campsite surrounded with tall agoho trees and amazing mountain landscapes, you’ll get to experience the most tranquil getaway ever!
Pansacola Beach (Cagbalete Island, Mauban, Quezon)
My daughter and went here, again with my colleagues. Located in a quaint, small town in Mauban, Quezon, Cagbalete Island is a home for a number of camping sites with accomodations such as nipa huts and lofts. We stayed in Pansacola Beach.
