Putipot Island: Uacon Zambales

Another beachy fun for me….Im now planning and setting up my schedule for another photoshoot event, and this will be in the Island of Putipot, located in Uacon Zambales. This is another eco-tourism destination for most of campers….

* A place where there is nothing…yup!!..you will find nothing in this island, no electricity, no cable, no convenient store, no proper toilet, but what they have here is PEACE and QUIET..far from the crowdy galera and bora…but here you will find crystal clear water, white sugar like sand, and most of all best view of sunrise and sunset ever…wanna know why?…u’ll get the best scene of the sun here since this is a very small island, in just 15-20 minutes walk you can already go around the island and see every edge of it….

* Is it safe??….safety is not in the island itself, it is being responsible with your own risk.

* don’t swim if your drunk

* don’t swim if you don’t know how

* wear proper vest

* be responsible

The island is safe for everyone, as per my friend, if you go at the backside the water is deep in just 5 meters away from the shore, at front you can go walk along 30 meters far from the shore but still feel the water in your waistline…the water is calm so no need to worry..

* how bout the signal?

Signal is still visible at this area so you do not have to worry of loosing the network while having your vacation…

  2. i need direction to get there. is it alright if you can give me directions? im planning to go there this weekend… send me sms at 09164852952

  3. do you know the website of elizabeth resort? we’re planning to go there two weeks from now… or maybe if you have their contact number… badly need it ASAP! thanks! 🙂

  4. For those who want to go to Potipot, I suggest that you reserve a room a month in advance. I stayed in SUN BLOOM RESORT (http://sunbloomresort.multiply.com). The people there are so friendly and accommodating.

  5. I’m sorry Arcee for the late reply…Unfortunately I don’t have any contact with Elizabeth but you can try at Sun bloom Resort or at Dawal…

    Ill try to look for other options for you..

  6. Thanks Pepper for the info…
