Victoria Cole Beach Resort

Victoria Cole Beach Resort

The Victoria Cole Beach Resort located in a small coastal village in Laoag, Cabangan, Zambales, Philippines which is home to aprox 300 people, mostly fishermen. It is 180km (112 mile) North West of Manila by road and takes about 4 hours to get there depending on traffic.

This is a rural location which I loved. It really got back to basics which made it so memorable. The owners are friendly and helpful. They have a few accommodation options when we stayed there from a hut to a self-contained room.

Being right on the beach, you wake up to the sound of waves. Get up and walk outside and feel the beach sand between your toes. Make a cup of coffee and walk along the water’s edge drinking your coffee as you watch the fishermen working with their boats. If you want to keep fit, you can go for a run or swim.

Looking north along the beach outside the resort in Zimbales. Waking up and walking out onto the beach only a few meters away was quite an experience.
