Beach front is nice and clean but as you go along the area you'll find plastic, diaper, barbecue sticks, empty alcohol bottles and all other stuff left by campers. I know there are many islands to be monitored but the local government of Zambales should take a look at Capones otherwise it will be polluted in a few months or... More

Capones Island is part of the tour when you're going to Nagsasa Cove or Anawangin. It's a short side trip you could do before or after your trip. It's a must see if you want to see the blue horizon of the west philippine sea. At the top is the dilapidated lighthouse but it's good for picture taking and prenup... More

Very nice white beach. Unfortunately I wasnt able to trek and explore the island as we only got limited time on the island. Will definitely go back here soon!

I just went here couple of days ago. It was part of our tour. I'll give it a 3.5 rating. This is one of the island that I don't want to go anymore. One thing is that, we swam going to the shore it was low tide I think that's why the bangkeros made us swim. The waves are strong,... More

One of the island hopping destination at pundaquit, zambales. The sand was white and fine. Rock formation is just breathaking. This place need to be protected as people is starting to exploit its beauty.

Pundaquit is usually the jump-off point for island-hopping tours in the area, which includes Capones Island. For me, this is the best island among all islands in the tour (just check my pictures!). We also found a "mini cove" in one of the rock formations where you can just chill and be on your own. However, there are large rocks... More

There's a small beach head that's good for swimming that the boat stops at before going to the light house. The second cove where the boat stops to get to the light house is rocky and slippery. From there, you climb a hill and keep on walking upwards to get to the light house. Once you get there, the amazing... More
