We went for a day trip to Crystal Beach Resort Zambales. It was a 3-4 hour drive from Quezon City to Zambales. We didn't really planned it so we just opted for a day trip because staying overnight is not an option since we weren't able to do prior bookings. The entrance fee if you're planning to go on a day trip is P 350.
Crystal Beach Resort is perfect for adventurers who loves camping and surfing. There are different types of accommodation in Crystal Beach and the most popular of all are the tents. You can bring your own or you can also rent from them. They also have air conditioned rooms and fan rooms that you can book depending on your budget and number of people.
Crystal Beach isn't a white sand beach so don't get your hopes too high. The place looks nice, its just that I've seen a lot of photos showing as if it's a white beach but it isn't. The place has pine trees and large waves. That's why this place is perfect for surfing.

I haven't tried surfing before so I was really looking forward to visiting this place because they have a Quiksilver Surf School. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, you can surf by renting a board or bringing your own. Since I haven't done it before, I availed the beginner's surfing class!
They taught me everything, the different positions, the stance and the rules of surfing. I learned a lot and they didn't stop until I was able to go for a long ride. It was self-fulfilling!

I know everyone of you is excited for your summer trips. This is the best time to hit the beach and chill with your friends while sipping cold drinks. I'm just wondering, what do you actually prepare for an upcoming beach trip? Let me jot down mine.
1. The Venue
Of course I think this is one of the most important things. Search locations that will suit the vibe that your looking for and wouldn't go over your budget (of course you have at least a rough estimate on your mind).
2. Your Budget
After looking for a venue, you can now estimate the money that you need to prepare for your trip. Best tip? Travel with your friends! This would help all of you to spend less and of course the more the merrier right? :)
There are a lot of ways to get to one place to another. You can book a plane ticket (if necessary), you can commute by bus, you can rent a coaster or van, and lastly you can drive your own car.
4. Your Wardrobe
Summer is my favourite season because I can wear my rompers and swimsuits more often! I'm obsessed with these types of clothing so I really make sure my summer wardrobe is on point!
5. Your Body
I'm not talking about being sexy and fit (though i know summer is a really good motivation to get your butts to the gym) but I'm talking about taking care of your skin and prepping your body for that summer outfit! Make sure you always put sunscreen all over your body and yes most importantly your face.
Another is get rid of that chicken skin and unwanted body hair! Book an appointment to your favourite waxing salon and let them do the job. I always trust Whipped when it comes to getting rid of unwanted hair. They keep my skin smooth and hair-free. That's why I'm always ready to flaunt that bikini confidently! Isn't it more sexy when you're confident? :)
It's advisable to wear a rash guard when surfing to protect your skin from the harsh sunlight and from open cuts if ever you fall from your board.
We left Crystal Beach Resort at 6pm because it's the cut-off time for day trippers. It was a good experience for a quick weekend getaway.
So there, I hope this post has been helpful if ever you're planning to go on a quick weekend getaway to Crystal Beach Zambales!
Stay tuned for more!:)
