Overnight at Crystal Beach Resort in Zambales

Best White Sand Beach
Crystal Beach Resort is situated in San Narciso, Zambales, a 3 to 4 hours travel from Metro Manila. Crystal Beach has a long fine sand beach which is good for camping and sun bathing. The water is cool and crystal clear perfect for the summer. As what you can see on the photo above, the area is surrounded by pine trees covering the camping area for a relaxing camping experience.

White Beach near Manila
After our backpacking in Northern Mindanao, our original plan was to visit the tourist destinations in Ilocos, and then second choice was Anawangin Beach in San Antonio, also in Zambales. For so many reasons, it became Crystal Beach Resort. We have our own car as mode of transportation this time, with the help of Waze. Photos below will explain why you need to include Crystal Beach Resort in your bucket list.

Best Surfer
Surfing during the sun set in Crystal Beach Resort is really remarkable as the background turns into gold. The golden sky reflects on the waters and the waves give a white contrast to it that added a beautiful art, ideal for a photo background.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: Crystal Beach Resort only accommodates the first 400 people, so it’s better for you to call them for registrations. We paid 550 pesos for camping, with our own tent (including the entrance fee, pitching fee and a 250 pesos worth of stub redeemable at the store and at the restaurant inside the resort). Parking area is wide. Water supply is good. Space for camping, rooms and cottages are also available.
