With its many picturesque coves and mountains and proximity to the Metro, Zambales has become a favorite spot for weekend getaways. You may already have a couple of go-to locations that your barkada or family keeps coming back to during the summer but if you’re looking for a new unique stay, this charming vegan beach resort and glamping site is definitely worth the visit.


Kwentong Dagat

Stay, feast, and flow: that’s what the Kwentong Dagat experience is like. Nestled at a fishing village in San Felipe, Zambales, this humble beach resort is the perfect getaway for those looking into experiencing the probinsya life and nature. It’s far from a five-star hotel experience, but it’s one of their biggest charms.
