Capones Island

Capones Island and a couple of other smaller islands such as the Camara Islands lie a few kilometers from the shores of Pundaquit, Zambales. The Camara islands are 2 kilometers offshore and Capones is 3 kilometers farther (5.2 km offshore). Capones and Camara islands are known for their white beaches, speckled with colorful crushed coral. Clear turquoise waters held us spell-bound. High rock cliffs beckon rappellers. Capones is known for an old Spanish-era lighthouse that brings visitors back in time.

There are no resorts nor facilities on the island. Tourists usually stay at a resort in Pundaquit, a small fishing village about 3 kms southwest of San Antonio where they can hire a boat to explore Capones Island.
