A Taste of Subic Bay

Subic Bay, Philippines

Subic Bay is a sizeable body of water located on the west coast of Central Luzon in the Philippines. See these maps to get a feel for its location…..

For many years it was the home of a sprawling, very large and important U.S. Naval Base. It was the strongest U.S. Navy presence in the Pacific region. For a variety of reasons, especially political reasons, in 1991 the Philippine government mandated that the naval base be abandoned and  all the troops be completely removed from the Philippines. The base was completely emptied out by 1992. For details, click on the following link:

So today, Subic Bay is a laid back, yet thriving little community with a variety of fun things to see and do there. To begin, we’ll start with the beaches. The most popular beach in the Subic area is Baloy Beach. See the map below to locate it at the far left on the bottom…..

I will touch on a couple of the interesting things about the Subic Bay community, and I’ll start out with the most popular beach in the area – Baloy Beach. Just look at the map above and see the beach on the bottom left of the map.

Now another attraction that brings in a lot of men to Subic Bay is the nightlife there. The nightlife bars are located in Barrio Barretto which can be seen on the Barrio Barretto bar and hotel map above. These bars employ a bunch of ladies who are available for the men to take out of the bars for a fee, and the ladies supply fun and pleasure for the men.
