Capones

Capones Island


May 17, 2008 will be our barkada outing...


Capones Island and a couple of other smaller islands (the Camera Islands) lie a few kilometers from the shores of Pundaquit, Zambales. The Camera islands are 2km offshore and Capones is 3 kilometers farther (5.2 km offshore). Capones and Camera are known for their white beaches, speckled with colorful crushed coral. Clear turquoise waters held us spell-bound. High rock cliffs beckon rappellers. Capones is known for an old Spanish-era lighthouse that brings visitors back in time.
There are no resorts nor facilities on the island. Tourists usually stay at a resort in Pundaquit, a small fishing village about 3 kms southwest of San Antonio where they can hire a boat to explore Capones Island.
