San Antonio is a town about a 25 minute drive from the top portion of Subic Bay. Buses traveling between Olongapo and Iba, Zambales stop at San Antonio in front of the municipal hall. A short 5 minute trike ride brings you to San Miguel section of town. Barangay (similar to a village or smaller section of a town) San Miguel is home to Casa San Miguel, a renown fine arts center, and the San Miguel Navy Base. The Philippine Navy base was once a US Navy communications base. When the US Navy left the Philippines, the base was divided into two sections, one is a Philippine Navy Facility and the remainder is the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy (PMMA). The Navy side got all of the long distance communication and navigation equipment, the base housing and the golf course. The course is open to the public and a number of the holes are on the South China Sea. The course is open to the public. Visitors to the base must enter the main entrance on the National highway. The San Miguel entrance is for base personnel only.
San Miguel does not have any large resorts but does have a number of small more native places to stay.
Barangay Pundaquit is the other San Antonio barangay with an ocean front. Slightly more remote, about 5 to 10 more minutes by trike, it is the area known for its small family own resorts. There is one luxury resort and a number of comfortable smaller one. San Miguel is in the residential area of the town, and the Arirang resort is at the edge of it with its own private beach, just a comfortable walk to other parts of the town. Pundaquit is just the resorts, some fisher-folks and little else. Pundaquit,technically, touches the Subic Bay Freeport. However, it is over the mountain range you can see that forms the bay separating it from the sea.
