Anawangin Cove is a crescent shaped cove with a pristine white sand beach located in the Municipality of San Antonio, Zambales. What makes the place unique is the unusual riddle of tall pine trees flourishing round its vicinity.
Since there are no roads leading to Anawangin, it is only accessible by a 30 minute boat ride from Pundaquit, San Antonio, or by a six-hour trek through hot, open trails thru the Pundaquit range. The cove’s relative isolation has kept it free from development – there are no resorts on this sparkling piece of natural beauty, the only structure that can be seen on the cove are a few huts, public toilets and deep wells.
Just behind the beach is the pine forest and a marsh, where one can find natural springs feeding to the sea.
