Our trip to Subic late last month was partly a family affair and a gathering with our friends. Last year, we went to Baler to surf. Though we planned to go back to Baler this year, due to some circumstances such as having an infant around and a friend who's going to be a first time mom (yehey!) we had to cancel and set for another one. Summer of 2012, we decided to go to a much nearer destination, SUBIC!. Our trip went around the beaches of Subic. After our ZOOBIC Safari, we went to All Hands Beach Resort and there, we spent the rest of our afternoon and evening.
Based on the website, All Hands Beach Resort was famous to the U.S. Navy. The name of the resort was derived from the old saying" all hands on deck". All Hands Beach is great for swimming for all ages due to the shallow and gradually sloping depth of the shoreline. -source-
The sand is fine and white. For a summer weekend, it wasn't as full, so we pretty much enjoyed the whole beach. They also offer night swimming. All Hands Beach Resorts has an awesome line of amenities and water activities for the whole family. They also have a lifeguard to watch over their guests.
Day Swimming: Php500
Night Swimming: Php600
The following day, we went to a nearby beach resort (which I forgot the name). The beach is more of a public beach. The usual beach resort that offers an affordable entrance fee, it opens at 8am then closes at 5pm.
It was a perfect destination for a quick dip in the ocean. Before leaving Subic, we all decided to go for another round. The view was fantastic, it was clean, with fine white sand and clear waters. If you're around the area and you want to freshen up, this beach resort is located along the way going to All Hands Beach Resort. It's near the Subic Bay International Airport.
Entrance fee: Php200
We had a blast! For me and my family, it was amazing. My son learned how to swim on his own, he was able to see real starfishes and baby crabs in the shallow waters of Subic. Everything was perfect. The sun was out, but it wasn't too hot. Both our families and friends were around. As always, we're blessed with a fun-filled summer!
