The anniversary day-out in Subic left us screaming for more. We could only wish that we stayed longer that November. And so, three months after, we find ourselves in the same spot. This time, we skipped Zoobic and wandered around unhurriedly for alternatives.
Thanks to my mother’s free RCI accommodation at Subic Holiday Villas, we were able to spend three days in comfort and no less than in the central SBMA district. The furnished apartel-like studio rooms were homey and contained all the basic necessities a guest could ask for: hot running water, a microwave and kitchenware, comfy bed and sheets, and sufficient space. Not to mention a gym and a huge pool (and I mean huge!) fronting the villas!
While located near the Freeport Zone and along the highway, this retirement community, surrounded by canopies of lush forests, lend an air of privacy and tranquility to its guests. A peaceful respite from the busy SBMA Freeport Zone, indeed.
We set off for the Subic Bay Boardwalk in the late afternoon to unwind. A stark contrast lied between the boardwalk itself and the strip of bars, modern hotels and restaurants that loomed over it. A rich, beautiful land-seascape struck Subic’s marina and its grey sands as the sun slipped down.
Water in this part of Subic Bay is not recommended for swimming as it serves as a port and docking place for cruise ships. But its relaxing ambiance amid the dramatic sunset makes it an ideal destination for serene, breezy walks at dusk. This place is best enjoyed with a lover or a friend, easy talks and dirty ice cream:)
