Why Subic is a Haven for Adventure Lovers

Subic Bay hosts various venues to people who love adventures. Humans are hardwired to enjoy the thrill and excitement that our natural environment. As the world becomes more urbanised, our appetite for adventure has been reduced. But when we see breathtaking natural landscapes and seascapes, our thirst and passion for excitement relive. In the Philippines, one of such venues is Subic Bay.

The former US naval base turned economic zone and freeport is also a world-class venue for eco-tourism. As its forests and wildlife had been preserved by US troops stationed in the area, it remains as a natural habitat for the rich local flora and fauna. Moreover, after the port has become a special economic zone, it has been developed and positioned as a tourism site rife with amusement parks, hotels, resorts, bars, golf courses, restaurants and entertainment venues for people with different preferences and economic status.

The combination of wonderful natural scenery as well as its tourist destinations that mushroomed throughout the years are the reasons why Subic Bay, Olongapo is a major venue that houses a complete package of adventure, fun and entertainment for local and international tourists.

Here are just a few of adventures that you can experience here:
