Click on any of the images to see the enlarged copy and narratives of the photo. Anawangin Cove is a crescent shaped cove with a pristine white sand beach. What makes the place unique is the unusual riddle of tall pine trees flourishing round its vicinity. There are no roads leading to Anawangin. It is only accessible by a 30 minute boat ride from Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales 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 - as of this writing, there are no resorts on this sparkling piece of natural beauty, save for a few huts and deep wells.
Just behind the beach is the pine forest and a marsh, where one can find natural springs feeding to the sea. The area is home to a number of bird species.
Additional narratives or blogs:A couple of interesting things we learned from the beach caretakers in Anawangin : ... The sand in Anawangin Cove is mainly Mt. Pinatubo lahar. I gathered some samples and it is very similar indeed to the lahar that can be found in Porac and Mabalacat on the other side of Mt. Pinatubo.
... The pine trees, (actually Agoho trees) did not exist in the area before the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. Looks like the ash fall somehow brought with it Agoho seeds as well and they grew into the forest we see at Anawangin today.
