Subic Zambales Philippines Hotels/Resorts
For many decades Subic was a hidden and mysterious place in the Philippines. Its presence—for decade—as the largest foreign U.S. naval base, limited its accessibility to many Filipinos. Today, with the United States Military gone and a superhighway (SCTEX) making for a speedy jaunt from Manila, Filipinos and foreigners alike have free reign and are welcome with open arms to experience a totally unique, world class travel destination.
There is so much going on in this land of fascination that it could take you days or even weeks to see and do it all. Enjoy panoramic views, forested retreats, fun-filled adventure parks, ecological-enlightenment, and awesome beauty all amongst a plethora of dining, nightlife, and resort accommodations.
On the high-adventure side of things, you can do some diving exploring over 20 historic old shipwrecks in the waters around Subic. Or take in an exciting jungle adventures with Siberian Tigers, experience eco-tourism in the mountains, jet-skiing and parasailing in the bay.
Visit amusement parks, jet ski, swim, kayak, sailboat, wind-surf, parasail, fish, hike, horseback ride, target practice, go nature trekking, marvel at centuries-old trees, bird-watch, bat-gaze, butterfly hunt, ride race go-carts, enjoy casino action, play tennis, golf, bike, bowl, play pool, shop, and—one of my favorite treats—indulge your pallet in a variety of interesting cuisine.
For those who prefer a more relaxed lifestyle, you can stroll along a romantic boardwalk, find interesting bars and night-spots, listen to a quality band, test your singing voice at a Karaoke club or simply go to a local cinema to catch the latest flick after shopping at the local mall or outlet stores.
Hotels and resorts in Subic range from the basic to the sublime. Elegant beachside rooms, full-on multi-room suites and villas for the entire family are to be found in throughout the freeport and directly outside. Mountain and hillside family retreats can be arranged for extended stay prices. A long favorite Filipino classic is Whiterock Beach resort just outside of the Freeport in the town of Subic. If you are looking for an all-in-one family fun stop—complete with waterpark, jet skis, rock climbing wall and bowling alley, Whiterock is your destination. Subic Holiday Villas offer the family lots of fun in a comfortable setting with suites and villas. If you are looking more of a classy romantic weekend getaway, then the Lighthouse Marina with its seaside passion is your ticket to paradise.
