My First Camping Experience in Anawangin Cove

In 2015, I had my first time camping experience In Anawangin Cove Zambales, Philippines. It wasn’t common in my country to have camping site for the local people. In this place, people from nearby provinces and tourist can have the thrill to experience to do camping and cook some seafood at the seaside. It wasn’t luxurious to stay in islands in Anawangin Cove. But the worth of getting away from the busy life in the city can boost one’s energy. Let me explore you in these untouched islands in Anawangin Cove. “Do you like going to the beach?” "Do you like camping on the beach?" Image Credit: Shavkat

I never even experience camping during boy scout days. I think some teachers don't want something to happen to us.But I do love on this spot and it starts to get dark. Image Credit: Shavkat

@Shavkat that is a beach, right? our camping was in a river bank. and the waters were cool despite the sun. hmmm, anyway, the sun's rays before don't cause sunburns.

@ridingbet It is one of the seasides of the province. I also tried to go to a river in Plaridel before and my mom used to wash the clothes there.

It is nice that you had tried to go to a camping site. It wasn't common in my country. It was a great experience to be in this place. The fisherman who guided us in the island had caught a fish and we ate it for dinner. Image Credit: Shavkat

This view is so beautiful. I ever camped on the beach with my husband in Beihai from my country. It was my first time to campe on the beach and it was quite windy at that time. I even doubted whether our camp would be flown away Unfortunately after that we don't have camping experience any more because there are not many camping places. I still keep a camp at home and wish one day we can camp again.

Yes, I like going to the beach. I make it a point to visit at least one beach every summer. Yes, I've spent time camping in the beach. Stayed at Talisayin Cove. That is a couple of minutes away from Anawangin.

I love the beach and even though I live near it I rarely go there... I did go camping once when I was at uni... We camped near the beach and how cold it was at night... Thanks for sharing your camp experience.

@Shavkat Whenever I get upset with my other half and need time for myself, I would drive to the beach and listen/look at the waves.... Night time is the best as all housework is done...

@Shavkat My wife and I have a beach camping trip already planned for the fall. Summers here we prefer to head for the mountains where it is a little cooler. We've a campout planned for the foothills next month.

Why didn't you have the chance to swim? In this island, you can also see some rock formations. It was a good day to explore the place during daytime.
