Located at the southern part of Zambales Province, the municipality of Subic is bounded on the north by
the town of Castillejos, on the east by the City of Olongapo and the province of Pampanga,
on the south by Subic Bay, and
on the west by the town of San Antonio. Topography consists mostly of mountains with a narrow plain along the coast of Subic Bay
and where most of the residents live. It is politically subdivided into 16 barangays.
Although agriculture remains an important source of livelihood, the town is fast becoming an urban center. It is in
fact classified as a first class municipality. A world-class shipbuilding facility owned by Korean investors is now a major employer in the town..
The town of Subic offers great opportunities in real estate development particularly commercial buildings, mass housing,
and tourist facilities such as hotels and resorts. Investors can also put up agribusiness ventures such as production of high value crops,
commercial hog and poultry raising and demonstration farms. With the presence of a large shipbuilding facility, businesses can be put up to supply
the needs of the plant and its employees.
