Subic Bay Freeport (SBF)
Subic Bay Freeport (SBF) is located
southwest 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. SBF is 110 kilometers north of Manila.
Manila Bay and the Bataan 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.
