Dog-friendly surfer hostel in Zambales: Ten Toes on the Nose Jungle Hostel, Crystal Beach

I celebrated my 3rd birthday at this beach-front surfer shack at Ten Toes on the Nose Jungle Hostel at Crystal Beach, San Narciso, Zambales. It’s about 3 to 4-hour drive from Makati via NLEX-SCTEX.

Look how happy I am playing sand angel! I am actually about to sneeze here.

There are only about ten shacks so you have book ahead since the place gets full easily. The shacks don’t have aircon but you don’t need anyway since the sea breeze is more than enough. It gets cold at night! The beds are comfortable cushions and they provide pillows and blankets, too. Each shack could only fit two humans and a furry kid like me. Overnight stay is only Php 1,700 including buffet breakfast for two! Food is not a problem as they have a huge mess hall which serves food from 6:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. Bathroom for humans are a bit far from the shacks but not a problem to dogs — i can pee anywhere! It’s the beach, baby! Oh and often times they have lots of free activities like sunrise yoga, sunset zumba, and acoustic night.

Looking forward to our next visit there next month. We’ll be renting the House of Ezra cottage at Crystal Beach. Planning to pitch my own tent!

Next week also we’ll be trying this doggy swimming pool in Pasig called Doggieland Pet Hotel, Nursery and Resort!
