Planning to head to Liwliwa, Zambales (well, San Felipe — the former is a sitio)? We’ve penciled in a visit to it this year too.
What is Liwliwa Zambales known for?
Liwliwa, found in Brgy. Sto. Nino in San Felipe, Zambales, is known for its long stretch of salt water and ashy white sand. People visit it mostly for surfing but when the waves are a bit calmer, it makes for a good spot for swimming too. Many would appreciate just walking by the beach and inhaling the tranquility here too.
It’s grown to become a hotspot during summer season, with many resorts and accommodations open to serve guests eager to have fun under the sun or experience utmost relaxation.
Fun fact: Liwliwa is the Ilocano word for solace.
How do you get to Liwliwa Zambales?
Head to a Victory Liner terminal (there’s one in Cubao, Pasay and Caloocan) and ride the bus heading to Iba or Sta. Cruz. Alight at San Felipe town proper and ride a tricycle to your accommodation.
