Once the home of the Spanish, and then the US Navies, the area is now a booming special economic zone. The area boasts international standard resorts, hotels, restaurants, bars, casinos, and night clubs.
The spectacular landscape, with the surrounding mountains sweeping majestically into the sea, emphasise one of Asia’s best natural deep water harbours.
With the SCTex (Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway) now open, driving time is now 45 minutes from Angeles, 1 hour 45 from Manila, and 1 hour 30 minutes from Tarlac.
Barrio Barretto and Baloy Beach are where the expats head for, offering seriously affordable accommodation, a friendly welcome, excellent food, and relaxing - no hassle - beach side bars, plus a chance to catch up on all the local news in a beach combers atmosphere.
The former base has undergone many changes, while keeping a lot of the old atmosphere, offering scuba, water sports, zip lining, horse riding, jungle training, go-karts, butterfly park, several casinos, international hotels, and a host of good restaurants. Try a little wreck diving and water sports, or relax at a beach-side restaurant.
The zone is easily navigable by bus or taxi from the Main Gate.
