What I thought to be ubiquitous in Philippine beaches are palm trees, but in Anawangin Cove there are more evergreen trees than palm trees growing on the sand. That's unusual, so my friends and I wanted to see the place. To get there, we took a bus from Manila to San Antonio in Zambales province. Then we took a tricycle to Pundakit beach where we hired a few small boats to take us to Anawangin.

It was fortunate that we arrived there around noon, otherwise the waves might have been too strong for the small boats. Anawangin Cove is not a secret, but because the place is undeveloped, the usual visitors are people who do not need hotels to enjoy a weekend vacation. At the cove, there is no electricity, telephone and cell phone signal. There are also no inns or restaurants. So we had to bring tents, camping equipment, food, and drinking water. There is a forest and lagoon nearby that we explored. The water in the lagoon was a little murky, but the sea water was clean. We were told that if we went hiking on the hills there we might have seen a tamaraw, a small wild buffalo.
