Now I remember the name of our side trip from my previous review re: Talisayen Cove. This is the Camara Island, about 40mins of boat ride from Talisayen. I finally had the chance for a photoshoot. Hahaha.

Camara Island, a rock formation sculpted by the sea, sits just off the coast of Barangay Pundaquit in San Antonio, Zambales.
You could hike up the top of the rock (that's where we were in this photo), but you have to be very careful because there's no trail. In order to get to the top of the rock formation, you'll have to vertically climb up some tree branches and rocks, which were all a bit slippery, to get to the top. Aside from climbing up the rock formation in Camara Island, my friends and I also decided to swim to the rock formation opposite Camara Island. The waves tend to get very strong during different points of the day, so this isn't always recommended. If you decide to do this, you'll also have to be wearing your life vest for safety.
What usually mesmerizes other visitors are the rock formations that are larger than life! There are several on the island. They just have a ball taking photos with the rocks!
Zambales is great for island hopping! The only way to get to Camara Island is by boat. Trips to Camara Island can usually be paired with trips to the nearby Capones Island, Anawangin Cove, and Nagsasa Cove. If ever you want to go island hopping in Zambales, you can find and book tour packages online.

Zambales Third Stop: Camara Island
The view of this little island was taken when we where at Camara Island. Good thing, it was low tide when we got there! Don't expect a powdery sand because the texture is grainy but it is white. The sands are made up of small sea shells that's why.
The small island of Camara is surrounded by big block of stones. We climbed those just to take pictures but be careful because the edges are sharp.
The sea is clear but be cautious with the big corals and small waves. It is better if you're just staying near the coast line and don't go too far if you can't swim.
Good experience for our 3rd island invasion in Zambales! We will surely come back here.
