Flashback Friday: Magalawa Island, Zambales

Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales ~ April 2012

Pardon the gloomy photo…we had so much fun I only had time to take photos late in the afternoon, while we were waiting for our boat to take us back to the mainland XD Trust me, the island is GORGEOUS. I normally loathe swimming in the ocean because of everything floating/swimming in it, but swimming near Magalawa’s shore is like being in a swimming pool, the water is crystal clear 🙂

We only stayed for the day since we were staying overnight at a friend’s house in Subic, but we all wished we could stay longer despite burning ourselves to a crisp 😀

We stayed at the Armada Resort because they were easy to find online. But there’s another resort on the other side of the island that I’d like to try next time 🙂

How to get there: Take a Victory Liner Sta. Cruz bus (Caloocan/Sampaloc stations), get off at Radio Veritas road and take a trike to either Armada or Ruiz pickup points. Your boat ride to the island will be included in your resort’s package rate 🙂
