3 Awesome Camping Spots in the Philippines
Spend your weekend in the company of pure and unadulterated nature.
For most backpackers, camping is the accommodation of choice: It's budget-friendly and gets you closer to nature. Unlike staying at a hotel, camping also encourages you to let go of modern comforts, which is a good thing, since it allows you to become resourceful and make do with what you have. Instead of moving pictures on a flat screen TV, you'll get amazing wilderness views right outside your tent. Camping also lets you explore the great outdoors the way it is meant to be explored: no fuss, bare, and straightforward.
There are many beautiful and safe spots where you can pitch your tent and go exploring. Here are some places where you can go camping in the Philippines.
Anawangin Cove in San Antonio, Zambales
Anawangin Cove is one of the many coves in the town of San Antonio where tourists enjoy beach bumming and camping. The shores are lined with gray sand and the waters are clear and perfect for swimming and snorkeling. You can take a boat or trek Mt. Pundaquit to reach the cove. Once you arrive, set up your tent at the campsite which is lined with tall agoho trees that create the much-needed nature vibe for your camping trip.
Mahabang Buhangin Beach in Calaguas, Camarines Norte
The unspoiled Calaguas group of islands in Vinzons town is the place to be if you're seeking a remote tropical paradise for your camping getaway. Mahabang Buhangin Beach is one of its notable beaches. With turquoise waters and white sand shores that resemble that of White Beach in Boracay, Mahabang Buhangin Beach is truly a sight to behold. There are few resorts and accommodations along the beach that allow you to pitch a tent for a fee.
Hundred Islands National Park in Alaminos, Pangasinan
Hundred Islands is one of the country's most prided destinations. With over a hundred islands and islets, it is the perfect example of nature’s pure beauty. Popular activities include island hopping, swimming, and snorkeling. If you choose to spend the night, you can pitch your tent at Governor's Island, Marcos Island, Children's Island, and Quezon Island.
