Zambo Public Beach


That's the Naval Forces Western Mindanao in the background

It’s a Sunday and locals trooped to this beach beside the Naval Forces Western Mindanao HQ. There were thousands of people in the beach today, including those from a high school grand homecoming group where one can see banners of different batches in different huts from 60’s to present scattered all over the beach.


Rocky at the shore but sandy a few meters past it. I went in for an uncomplicated fun of soaking in the waters of Basilan Strait

This government managed beach seems a favorite picnic place of the residents.There were other beaches farther from the city but due to the red alert status, locals don’t venture far. Generally, it has been peaceful here even on the day I arrived where the city was on a triple red alert status.
