So close to Manila in distance but so different in pace and lifestyle, Zambales is a haven for nature lovers and adventure seekers looking for a quick getaway. Are you into timelapse or night photography? Liw-Liwa’s beach is perfect for both. Sometimes, we’ll even start a bonfire. Zambales is also jump-off point for our community-based tourism projects. Keep checking with us for updates on how to take part in those as well and make your weekend a little more meaningful.
