It took us about 2-3 hours to get to Subic. We went straight to Camayan Beach Resort. For the people who live in Manila, I think Subic is one of the places they choose to go when they want to spend time in the beach. It’s a place where you can lounge in the beach while having a great view of the Zambales mountain range and the sea, and you can swim whenever you want.
Camayan is a lovely resort that has a nice beach sand (but not close to Boracay or Panglao of couse) with an amazing view. I personally think it has everything life can offer for your quick getaway. It has ample parking and is very close to the Zoobic Safari and to Ocean Adventure. You can spend the day and appreciate more the Ocean and its creatures with the shows and activities they have in store for you. But too bad, I wasn’t able to witness it myself. Maybe next time.
The general admission prices are pretty reasonable; Adult (13 years old and above) – P300, Child (12 years old and below) – P250 and Senior Citizen (with valid SC I.D.) – P240. Upon entering the resort, I was surprise with the beautiful garden and surroundings, clear waters and nice sand. It’s something you never thought you’d find in a place close to Manila. Lol
The place is so huge, so no need to worry about private space. There are also cottages available for rent at the front of the beach swim area especially if you’ll be visiting for the day, and restaurants are available as well.
Though our stay was quite short, I still had fun. If you are looking for a quick getaway and/or you have kids that just wanna play at the beach. Camayan Beach resort is a good place for that. No need to spend too much money on flights to Boracay. But of course, Boracay, Bohol and Palawan are so much better.
