While in Anawangin, the best accomodation you can get is through your tent. Most of the people who visit the place bring with them their own tent. But if you do not have one, tents can be rented there at P200 per night (not quite sure of the rate). Campground is dominantly flat and free from any humps. For more comfort, you can bring earthpad or sleeping bag (some even bring conforter..hehe).
cheap (if you already have one as you don't need to rent)

Canoe Beach Resort: Feels like home
A beautiful place to stay with a pool. It's affordable and the people are nice.
There's no tv but you don't need one as you will enjoy your island hopping.
I'd love to comeback to this place and hope you will see it as well.
- great view of Capones and Camara Island
- Beach huts
- Massage place

Benches and Picnic Tables: Accomodation - or the lack of, that is...
There are no resorts in Anawangin. It is a practically nude beach except for some huts and some picnic tables. There is a comfort room with 2 toilets and 1 changing room, but not well-maintained, plus there is no running water, no faucets. So you may want to bring a tent along so you can change there.
There is also no potable drinking water. But there is a water pump, which is good enough for cleaning up.
Note: there is an 'environmental fee', by the way, of P50/head. These are being collected by the caretakers of the place.
Please, please, make sure you bring a garbage bag so that when you leave the place, you can bring your garbage with you. Let us preserve this beautiful piece of nature.

as for me sunbloom is the best place to stay at when you're going to potipot island.. ate mercie and allan were so nice and very accommodating.. though we were not able to go to potipot island due to the storm, their place serves as our shelter and they made sure we're safe.. they even gave us discount..hehehe.. but the thing is..i forgot to pay one serve of corned beef and cola..hehehe... i hope to visit uacon,zambales before the year ends and eventually go to the island, and im pretty sure, im gonna stay at their place again.. thanks ate mercie..ü
there's actually no pool in sunbloom..but has the best view of potipot island..the thing is.. i wasnt able to get a clearer and nicer picture of it because of the strong wind and rain.. but this is the best! hehehe...

ISLA VISTA BEACH RESORT: Worst Resort nearest to Potipot Island
My wife and I together with some friends recently went to Potipot last Holy week. Grabeng service ang meron sa Isla Vista Beach Resort. Since fullybooked sa Dawal, dun kami nag book. Mukhang mga pera ang mag staff and management. Lahat dapat bayaran mo otherwise, magtataray sila sayo and your whole stay will definitely be spoiled. Sobrang bastos ng mga staff and they even said to us, magkakamag anak daw sila dun. No wonder pare pareho sila ng ugali. Grabe talga un. Ung pics ng rooms sa web, hindi totoo. sira ang aircon and ang dumi ng rooms. Food I agree, walang kwenta! So, sa mga nagbabalak mag Potipot, pls DON'T GO to ISLA VISTA BEACH RESORT. Name nung isang staff na EILEEN. Siya ung onwer ng cell number na nasa web nila. I hope mas marami pa makabasa ng review na 'to. And sana makarating sa local tourism ng Candelaria, Zambales....Kung mababasa man to ng isla vista, MAHIYA NAMAN KAYO SA MGA SARILI 'NYO!!!

Camp beside the Swamp in Anawangin: Picture-Perfect View
Aside from the stunning beach, there is also a lovely swamp in Anawangin Cove sandwiched between fine white sand and a line of pine trees.
Some of the late-comers settled in this area when they found that the main campground in the middle part of the cove was already littered with tents.
The swamp area is also a good place to camp. I didn't notice mosquitoes or any other insect /reptiles in the waters or along the bank. Some of my friends were even confident enough to cross the lake to the other side where the pine trees were.
*however, the water pumps and toilets are quite far from the swamp area.

Camp amidst pine trees in Anawangin: Green skies?
During weekends, many people from the city flock to Anawangin. The "P50" Camping Area could get crowded. If you want a more quiet/private area, camp in the "P150 (3 USD)" camping ground. There is also a nearby toilet in this area. It is located at the right side of the cove near the end of the shoreline. (this is to your left if you are facing the cove)
There are picnic tables scattered around this area. You may use them for free if you are camping within those grounds.
In the morning, when you look up, all you can see are specks of blue and sunlight filtering through the needlely leaves of the pine trees.

Camp along the beach in Anawangin: The splashing of waves makes a good lullabye
There are no lodging facilities in Anawangin Cove. All visitors are expected to bring their own tents/hammocks and other sleeping equipment.
The beach has caretakers, though. And depending on which part of the beach you pitch your tent, you will be asked to pay a maintenance fee of P50 (about 1 USD) or P150 (about 3 USD) per person.
I suggest you settle on the middle part of the beach near the water pumps and public toilets. Fee here is P50/person. Both the lake (to the left) and the rockies (to the right at the edge of the cove) are a short walk from here.
*It is probably best if your tents are under trees or between other foliage in case of rain and also to protect them from strong gusts of wind from the sea. (it did not rain when we were there but it DID get windy)

Punta De Uian Resort Hotel: Pundaquit's Best
As an avid surfer, I've been to a lot of surf spots in Hawaii, Australia, Thailand and of course, the U.S. where I was born and raised. A friend of mine recommended the Pundaquit beach in Zambales, Philippines. I was skeptical at first, after seeing the "resorts" along the beach until I came across PUNTA DE UIAN. It's located on the remote part of the Pundaquit strip, very exclusive, beautifully built with a breathtaking view of the beach, nearby islands and the mountains. An overnight stay at one of their deluxe rooms cost about US$80, more expensive than average in the area but well worth it! The room was luxurious with a queen sized bed, airconditioning, cable TV, ipod speakers, decent bathroom and a balcony with an awesome view! The staff headed by their super attentive and handsome(?!) manager, Kelly Peralta (look for him should you decide to book here), a surfer himsef, were very warm and friendly. The main hotel itself looked and felt like being in a house. The food was superb with big portions and beautiful presentation. Perfect after catching some beautiful waves lol!
Aside from surfing, one can try their jet skis, ATV rides, kayaks or a boat ride to nearby CAPONES and CAMERA Islands. I hear scuba will be offered soon so I'll definitely be back for that!
I can't stress enough the warm and friendly atmosphere and the breathtaking views of this place-islands, sea, mountains and of course the waves, perfect for longboarders like me. I'll definitely come back here. Can't wait to tell my friends about it. Surf's up, everyone!

Crystal Beach Resort: Campsite
Staying here will cost you less. We stayed in a two-level cogon hut, that is why smoking is not allowed. The upper part is an air-conditioned room, while the lower section is an open area. There are two separate comfort rooms in our place.
Beware of the creepy crawlers especially at night.
Great view of the sea, since we got the beach front house

Sun Bloom Resort: Great resort accross Potipot Island
The rooms had an airconditioner and a fan, very comfortable beds and really clean toilets. Good value for the money. I would definitely recommend Sun Bloom. We had a great stay there.
The resort has a kitchen that guests can use, you can rent a stove as well for cooking. There's a big table that can be rented too and free use of the grill. There's also a sari-sari store inside the resort compound, very convenient. There were no water or electric problems when we were there.
