THE former US naval base, the Subic Bay Freeport industrial zone in Zambales province, is being transformed into a premiere tourism destination with the recent opening of a US$4.3 million development project, the Grand Island Resort.

Grand Island boasts of a two-hectare seawater lagoon, whitesand beaches, 20 quadruplex chalets along the beachfront, a new five-star hotel, historical sites, and forests. Owners of Grande Island also invested about US$2.8 million for the purchase of two air-conditioned 250-seater ferry yachts to transport guests to and from the island and enjoy a cruise around the pristine waters of Subic Bay.

To date, the company has a total investment of US$7.1 million. Philippine Tourism Authority general manager Mr Robert Dean Barbers said that Grande Island and Subic Freeport as a whole would be included among the top destinations in the country being marketed by the government through the various Philippine tourism offices abroad.
