Capones Island & Anawangin Beach 🇵🇭 San Antonio, Zambales
San Antonio has everything we adore about a destination: fantastic sights, accessibility, and a unique geology. Yes, its coast is fringed with stunning beaches like many other provinces in the country, but what sets them apart is its composition and history. The beaches here are not strewn with your ordinary fine sand but volcanic ash, straight from the gut of the mighty Mt. Pinatubo. All these factors combined make San Antonio an interesting weekend destination, to say the least.
Capones Island, also known as Grand Capon or Capon Grande Island (Spanish: Isla de Capon Grande) is a small island approximately 1.9 kilometers (1.2 mi) long by 0.4 kilometers (0.25 mi) wide, at its widest point, lying some 3.8 kilometers (2.4 mi) off the coast of the province of Zambales on western Luzon island in the Philippines. It is the largest of the Capones Islands (Islotes de los Capones), a group of three small islands which also includes nearby Camara Island and another islet connected to it by a sand bar. The island is administratively part of barangay Pundaquit of the Zambales municipality of San Antonio.
