Subic Bay is located in Olongapo City that is situated in the province of Zambales. It was developed by the United States Naval base which was once the largest U.S. military naval base in Asia. It became the base of the United States 7th Fleet until 1991 when the Philippine Senate rejected terms for renewal of the lease of the base. During Mt. Pinatubo's eruption of the same year, volcanic ashes covered the Naval Base, destroying a significant number of structures.
It is a public Beach that is located in Subic Bay, in front of Waterfront Rd., thus it is known to some passerby as "Waterfront Beach", however the real "Waterfront Beach" is located in Morong, Bataan. Since it is a public beach it is free of any entrance fee, however swimming is widely prohibited. But then again, one can still relax and enjoy the calming waves of the sea. Let alone, walk on the grayish fine grain sand and stroll around the beachfront while watching the sun as it envelopes the bay with the mountain ranges of Zambales giving a paradise like setting.
How to Get There:
1. From Cubao, you ride buses bound to Olongapo.
2. Once in Olongapo you can walk to Waterfront Rd., to which the Sbma Beach is locaed.
