Zambales : Team Building in Anawangin

As a designated lakwatsero of the group, I was again assigned (for the 3rd year in a row), as the planner for our department's yearly team building activities. And like our first two trips, the group decided that it will be another camping trip... and this time we unanimously agreed to visit the popular backpacking cove of Anawangin.

The Anawangin Cove is one of the most popular destination for campers and beach goers alike. It is the nearest cove from the town proper of Pundaquit and is currently the most visited and developed amongst its neighboring coves and islands like Nagsasa and Capones.

The place is made popular by pine trees that are abundant on the cove. That is why, it felt like you are in Baguio but then run just a couple of minutes and you are in a warm beach... such novelty that only Anawangin can bring.
