    About Manila

    The capital of the Philippines - its heart and soul - is Manila. Metropolitan Manila is where the country's most prestigious business addresses and the trendiest leisure establishments are found. By day, it hums with the bustle of commerce and, by night, throbs with the excitement of varied, world class entertainment. Catch a glimpse of the many wonders we offer you as you visit our 7,107 islands and golf course landscaping.

    The following places are one of our best world attractions:

    Anawangin: Anawangin

    Anawangin is an island cove in the town of San Antonio, Zambales. It is a beach with off-white sand and evergreen forest covering the shoreline, with breathtaking mountains and cliffs bounding the ocean waiting to be explored. Anawangin is an island with no electricity. No modern amenities except artesian wells and basic comfort rooms. No hotel, no convenience store, no cell phone signal and, definitely, no internet.

    Anawangin TentsAnawangin is a paradise for people who love nature and adventure: This is the place for swimming and snorkeling blue water that is full of marine life; relaxing out by the beach in a hammock; drinking and singing with friends around a campfire, stargazing and sleeping all night by just lying on the beach sand or inside a tent, climbing cliffs and mountains waiting for the sunset. With its evergreen forest, gentle stream, breath-taking views and off-white sand, Anawangin is a hidden paradise and a virgin resort near Manila.
