We went here last March, the sea was nice for us to reach the other islands as well. Anawangin is little far from what I expected — less cottages, no entrance fess. Nevertheless, Anawangin did not fail to surprise me, the breathtaking view when you climb its mountain is priceless!! Anawangin is still in its pristine beauty.
One of my travel buddies mentioned that those stick flags weren’t there before. You will have to pay another Php 50.00 for you to further explore the cove, but we didn’t want to pay, so we trespassed.
Anawangin Cove is very well taken care of, no nasty trashes like cigarettes, plastics, dried leaves, etc. The water is crystal clear with a relaxing temperature, enough for you to float and sleep on it. Just beware of the rip current or waves that could take you away from the shoreline which has caused some causalities.
The bangkeros allotted us one hour to explore the cove, because we have to reach the Capones island before lunch as sea waves can be inadvertently mad. Upon arrival, we immediately climbed its mountain.
The 20 to 30-minute climb could be very exhausting, but the breathtaking view of the blue water and the whole Anawangin cove will take your tiredness away! And I didn’t bring water that time, lol. I thought I was going to die dry on that mountain.
Anawangin Cove rates and entrance fee:
Boat: P900.00 (Good for four people)
Entrance fee: P50 per head
Overnight stay: P100 per head
For an overnight stay, an additional P500.00 will be charged. The boatman will watch over you and your group while the boat will be parked near where you will be setting up camp. This ensures that you will be safe from strangers and if an emergency occurs, the boat will always be ready to leave for town. You may also ask our boatman to cook your lunch for you (rice and viand) for an extra fee (cooking and ingedients) before leaving shore.
