beyond its long beach line, are the grassy hills rising in the island of Capones. this is by far one of the best natural landscape that i've seen in an island.the rock formations that forms the landscape looks like someone big has really worked on its details to make it this scenic. we spent so much time taking pictures in Sakate hill. on top of this hill, you'll have a great view of the island's shoreline.on the leftmost edge of Adelante beach stands an abandoned building which looks like a resort discontinued. it looks like it was constructed years back. to me, this abandoned building blends with the landscape.on the other side of the Sakate hill, you'll get a view of Camara island and mountain range of Zambales.hiking farther up, on one side you'll see part of Maryada and Huego beach front. the waves from here are continuous formed from the winds of typhoon Igme which already entered the Philippine area of responsibility.right side from this vantage is the Lehos wall and the Agudo hill. Agudo hill is accessible through the Kamino beach front which will also lead you to the lighthouse of the island.looking down, you'll see the Huego beach line. which is accessible via Maryada beach or through the Sakate downhill. from all the islands that i've visited, i consider Capones as one of the best in terms of natural landscape. to see the island this as green as this, best time to be there will be between July until August. just make sure that you check the weather forecast before you decide to go to the island. Lawstude will feature more stunning shots of these hills in the coming days.
