Port of Subic Bay

The Port of Subic is within the Subic Bay Freeport Zone, formerly a US Naval Base now managed by the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.

Close to Asia’s busiest ports, the 41-hectare port area features a natural cove with harbors of up to 15 meters deep - ideal for quayside boarding and disembarkation. It has 15 operational piers and wharves that can handle all kinds of sea vessels, including Panamax-class types.

Within a few minutes’ walk from the passenger terminal are shopping centers, hotels, casinos and restaurants, offering an array of delectable cuisines.

An easy ride away are beaches, marina, golf course, maritime museum and water-sport facilities and shipwreck diving areas. For meetings and events is the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center, one of the country’s biggest convention facilities. Subic Bay also offers a host of eco-tourism attractions, including three unique nature-based theme parks. Another interesting activity is bird-watching, which has been cited by prestigious bird-watching groups as ”a gold mine in a brilliant environment”.

Also readily available are several lifestyle tour packages to suit every visitor’s fancy. Subic Bay has its own international airport and is a mere 45-minute drive to another international airport.
