Rainy season may soon be here but that doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to vitamin sea.
When we think of summer, we get images of a beautiful blue ocean, white sandy beaches, lounging by the pool with a cocktail in hand and getting a tan.
Zambales is famous for its beautiful beaches and deep blue seas, outdoor activities, and views of stunning natural sceneries where you can create unforgettable memories with your family, friends or your significant other.
The travel only takes two to three hours away from Metro Manila, quite accessible for the current situation. Just remember to check the entry protocols and to pre-register your travel to secure your traveler’s pass, as Zambales enforces strict policies.
Here is a list of Airbnbs in Zambales near beautiful beaches (some are literally a few steps away). They have great interiors too so you can just snuggle up and relax indoors if the rains suddenly come.
Warning: A couple if these Airbnbs are a bit of a splurge.
