Subic Bay Freeport Zone
Subic Bay is a unique project on the site of a former United
States Naval base. It was buried under ash after the eruption of Mt
Pinatubo in 1991 and has since been transformed into a buzzing
eco-tourism and commercial hub, only five minutes from Philippines
International airport and a two-hour drive northwest of Manila.
Most of the area, which is enclosed by a security fence, is covered
in dense forests teeming with flora and fauna, including rare
butterflies and bats. There are also lovely unspoiled beaches to
enjoy, exceptional scenery, forest trails, watersport activities,
coral reefs and shipwrecks to explore, numerous sports facilities
and duty-free shopping centres.
