Capones Island, Zambales

Capones Island is another beach destination in San Antonio, Zambales. If you’re not too adventurous or you’re not the type of person who would want to go through the hassle of going to Anawangin Cove or Nagsasa Cove, then Capones Island might just be right for you. Capones Island is around 15 to 20 minutes boat ride from the shores of Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales. I’m not sure how much it will cost to go there since Capones was just part of the Nagsasa trip that we had weeks ago.

Another famous attraction in Capones Island, aside from the white sand beach and snorkeling spot, is the Capones Lighthouse. It’s located at the far end of the island which we were not able to see when we visited there.

If you wish to visit the island, you may check my post on how to get to nagsasa cove. A boat that will bring you to Capones can be arranged with the boatman that we hired during our trip. The contact number is also posted in that page.
