of the Luzon Island in the Philippines. The harbor is sandwiched
by the Zambales Mountain Range at the east and the Subic Bay
at the west and opens up to the South China Sea. It is northwest
of the Bataan Peninsula and southwest of the Zambales Province.

Peninsula separate SBF from Manila.
The mountain ranges around the Subic Bay area and the deep natural
harbor provide excellent and protected anchorage. In addition,
these features make SBF naturally sheltered from typhoons as
well as from the effects of the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. SBF

of the points in the growth triangle and is an engine for economic
development in the region. SBF is a supplier of services and
products for the Central Luzon Development Program (CLDP), a
regional growth area composed of the provinces of Bulacan, Nueva
