Capones Island: Swimmer's Haven!

Capones Island is located in the town of San Antonio, Zambales.  This island is well known for the old lighthouse that was built with just bare hand during the Spanish era.  I never had a chance to see this lighthouse when we get there, but I heard that it has an old dramatic and cinematic image over the cliffs.

Like most of the hidden islands in the Philippines, this one is also untouched.  No accommodation facilities, network signal, electricity and even a store.  With its crystal-clear water, white sand and breathtaking view, Capones is really a swimmers paradise.

To explore the island more, you must stay here overnight.  Make sure to bring your own tent, food and other necessities if you are planning on staying.  Otherwise, just bring your smile and let your adventurous soul explore the island during the day.  I know there are a lot to do in this island, and I can't wait to try them, next time.
Water at Capones Island
Unlike Anawangin, there are no trees here or any source of shades so it's really hot.  When we went there, we only used a big rock to hide from the sun. No source of fresh water also, so make sure to bring your own.
The only source of shade, the big rock!
When you plan on visiting Anawangin Island, make sure to include Capones Island and Nagsasa Cove in your itinerary.  You won't want to miss the opportunity to get close to Mother Nature, undisturbed.
View from Capones
Capones Island is along the way from Anawangin Island to Pundaquit, so it's best to drop by here after Anawangin, then Nagsasa Cove.  It's only approximately 12-20 minutes boat ride from Anawangin Island.
Small size boat like this can be hired at a cheaper price
There's no network connection here so make sure to schedule with boatman when you want to be picked-up.  Always haggle with the boatman to get the best deal.
Water here is very clear and tempting. Don't come here if you have no intention to swim, or if you don't have extra clothes. There are no shower rooms here so just ask your boatman where you can take a short shower when you get to Pundaquit.

Going back, make sure to try the waves at Pundaquit. This has become a very popular place for surfers.
