Zambales Weekend Getaway

Its summer time and this means plenty of outing and weekend getaways. Last weekend, just right after Baguio, we once again had a weekend getaway at Zambales. This time around, I was with a different family. I’m talking about my Fort Strider’s club family.
We went to Crystal Beach at San Narciso Zambales. It took us 4 and a half hours to reach the place. But it was all worth it. Contrary to what a runner would do, we practically ate so many fatty foods during this weekend getaway. We didn’t mind though since you don’t get to eat Dinakdakan (kilawing pisngi ng baboy), Inihaw na Liempo, and Kilawing Tuna that often.
The whole Sunday was practically a rest day for running. Well, almost. I did try some beach running for just around 2KM and that’s it. But we had some team building activities that are both physically and mentally challenging.

If you have time to spend your weekend, I would recommend trying out this place. If you have a tent, you could bring it to Crystal beach or you could rent a tent for 120pesos. In reality, it is actually more expensive to travel to Zambales than staying at the resort. So what are the amenities? Well, the place is designed really for team buildings, so the place has an obstacle course, rope climbing obstacle. They also provide table tennis, chess and billiards. For 400 pesos you could also avail surfing lesson for an hour.
