Crystal Beach Resort
Crystal Beach Resort is situated in San Narciso, Zambales, a 3 to 4 hours land travel from Metro Manila. Crystal Beach has a long fine sand beach, good for camping. The water is cool and crystal clear perfect for the summer. Plus, the waves are big and strong, perfect for surfing.  Well, the area is surrounded with pine trees that covers the camping area from the UV rays that also provides a relaxing camping experience.

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, Zambales. For some reason, it became Crystal Beach Resort. We have our own car as mode of transportation this time, with the help of Waze.

There are luxurious rooms but if you’re in a tight budget, having an overnight camping is recommended. No worries, the kitchen, rest rooms and shower rooms are available at Crystal Beach Resort, with a lot of water supply, 24/7. If you’re planning for a day tour, cottages by the beach are available for rent - this is the perfect spot where you can see the surfers happily playing with the huge waves.

Look at those huge and playful waves, they made Crystal Beach Resort one of the best surfing spot in the Philippines. If you’re searching for extreme water activities, surfing is for you. Surfing boards and instructors are always available by the beach.

Surfing during the sun set in Crystal Beach Resort is remarkable because the horizon, the water and the skies turn 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.

REMINDER: 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 and pitching fee) plus a 250 pesos worth of consumable 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. Look for Crystal Beach Resort on facebook.

HOW TO GET TO CRYSTAL BEACH RESORT: Ride on a Victory Liner bus bound for Iba, Zambales and alight near San Sebastian Church in San Narciso, Zambales. Then, ride in a tricycle to Crystal Beach Resort.
