Subic is a shining jewel in Central Luzon, geographically located 110 kilometers northwest of Manila, the capital of the Philippines.
Strategically positioned in the dynamic Asia Pacific Region, Subic Bay occupies a 60,000 hectare complex including some areas of its neighbors - Zambales and Bataan.
Asia's promising new tourist destination, Subic Bay's strategically located, deep natural harbor once contained America's largest military installation overseas and a favorite rest and recreational center for the service men. When the US Navy pulled out in 1992 after the destructive Mt. Pinatubo volcano eruption, it has since been transformed into a free port and Special Economic Zone. Apart from now being a center for commerce and industry, Subic which takes about 30 minutes by plane and 2 ½ hours by land also offers a unique combination of attractions, including first-class hotels, duty free shopping, golf, horseback riding, scuba diving, water sports and even jungle treks. In Subic, you can enjoy one of the Philippines' last virgin forests.
