Magalawa Island Discovery

Zambales is gifted with natural beauty. Potipot, Capones, Anawangin and Nagsasa Coves are often included in the bucket list of beach enthusiasts. Nowadays, Magalawa Island in Zambales is becoming a well-liked discovery in the north region.

To visit Magalawa Island, it will take around 4 ½ hours of land travel from Metro Manila (inclusive of 15 minutes rough road trip) and 10 minutes of banca ride from the Palauig dock. This is an alternative for beach lovers who prefer short haul sea travel.

The panoramic view of Magalawa island is an ideal subject for photography. The scenic foliage, the brownish powdery sand and the visible group of starfish along the northern part of the coast reveal the beauty of this private island

The place is also well maintained by the local caretakers. Built-in nipa huts are available for rent costing around PhP1,200 per night. However, travelers on a shoestring budget may set up their own tents since the island is also a perfect camping site.

This place is highly recommended for nature lovers who want to feel relax over the weekend.
