Summer has officially started, the time of the year when we get to hit the beach again! But aside from the usual summer beach getaways, why not step up your beach experience? Inflatable Island will definitely give you the ultimate beach challenge. Are you up for it? :)
Located in Subic Bay, Olongapo City, Zambales, Inflatable Island is a 4,200sqm floating water park (equivalent to 8 basketball courts), making it the biggest floating playground in Asia! The playground is loaded with obstacles with great variety of shapes, sizes and functions which make the activities exciting, challenging and entertaining for everyone.

Believe me, it was really challenging yet super fun to go through the obstacles! We were told that by playing in the Inflatable Island, you can burn around 400 calories in 1 hour! Imagine how you’re exercising while having fun! That’s cool, right? Haha. Among the activities, my favorites are the Trampoline and Tarzan Swing. I definitely felt like I’m a kid again! Haha.
There are also floating unicorns and swans that we obviously enjoyed! Hehe
Inflatable Island is perfect for the young and young at heart. However, only kids with height of 3.5ft above are allowed inside, with adult supervision. There are plenty of life guards around so safety is assured but it is still advised to keep an eye on your companions as well. Safety first, everyone!
Inflatable Island Ph Travel Vlog
Have a glimpse of what happened during our stay in Inflatable Island. Watch us have fun and enjoy. :)
One of the things that made my experience memorable is that I was able to make new friends! Just like in a real playground situation, you can also make new friends and play with them. :)
Their staff are very friendly so if you need help or anything, don’t hesitate to approach them, they are very willing to assist you with your needs. :)

Experience the Bali-inspired lounge
Onshore, there’s an exclusive Bali lounge with colorful umbrellas and comfy bean bags for you to stay in while you rest and eat. Somehow, I had a glimpse of what Bali feels like. :) Isn’t this very Instagrammable? Take your time capturing every corner to achieve a colorful feed! Hehe.
Food and refreshments are available in the food trucks around the area. You can also bring food in the resort (but NOT the Bali lounge) from the outside, however, you have to pay for the corkage fee.
Who wouldn’t love this watermelon shake on a unicorn?! :) How cool!
Aside from the Bali lounge, there are also cabanas available for day use for an affordable rate. No overnight accommodations are being offered yet, but there are a lot of hotels in Subic to choose from for your accommodation.
How to Get There
- From Victory Liner Caloocan, Cubao or Pasay, ride a bus going to Olongapo
- Fare ranges from Php 196-245
- Saulog buses also have routes going to Olongapo
- Drop off Victory Liner Terminal then ride a blue jeep
- Fare ranges from Php 8-10
- Ask the driver to drop you off at Inflatable Island in Samba Bluewater Resort (formerly known as Cali Beach and Halfmoon Resort)
- You can also ride a bus going to Iba, Zambales and ask the conductor to drop you off at Inflatable Island.
- Drivers/locals may not be familiar with Inflatable Island since it’s new. You can tell them to drop you off at Cali Beach / Halfmoon Resort / Samba Bluewater Resort instead.
Opening Hours and Ticket Prices
Inflatable Island is open from 7:00am until 6:00pm daily. I suggest that you should arrive 30 minutes before your schedule so you have enough time for orientation and life vest fitting.
Ticket Prices (as of January 2020)
Splash Pass (Two Hour Pass) – Php 688
Spray Pass (Half Day Pass) – Php 888
Soaked Pass (Whole Day Pass) – Php 988
Tip: Make sure to reserve your slot online because walk-in rates are more expensive! Another thing is, reservations are more prioritized than walk-ins because the island is only limited to 250 persons.
I was able to try the Spray Pass which is a half day pass and I got to explore the whole island! It is probably the one I recommend you get because that’s enough to maximize your time to play. It still depends on how you want to spend your day. A two hour pass may be already enough for some while a whole day pass might be for others who just want to play all day! Hehe
- Make sure that your life vests are properly secured. No life vest, no play.
- The Inflatable Island can be slippery so be more careful. We were able to get a hang of it as we go through the island.
- Some obstacles are very challenging, so if you think you can’t do it, just don’t. Safety first!
- You will fall into the water, believe me, and it might be difficult to get back on the island. Don’t panic because there are plenty of life guards to assist you.
- You can keep your belongings in the lockers that are available for rent.
- Cameras and phones are not allowed in the island.
- There is an available space for parking.
- Shower area is available, which is newly constructed and has enough number of cubicles. But
For bookings, simply send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website at www.theinflatableisland.com. They are also open for photo shoots and team buildings with discounts for a big group!
You may also follow them on Facebook for more details and updates.
Be one of the first to experience the biggest floating playground in Asia! This is a one of a kind experience that is perfect for the whole barkada or family. :) Have an extraordinary summer getaway! Enjoy! :)

Thank you din sa pag-sama! Halata naman na-enjoy natin masyado hahaha
I’ve only been to Subic once and so I’ve not heard of this inflatable island before. It looks like a lot of fun. You’re totally right that young and young at heart are going to love it.
It’s a new attraction in Olongapo. :) It just opened last month, so that’s probably why you haven’t heard about it before hehe It is totally fun!!! Perfect for the whole family :)
I want to try too! Ang concern ko lang, kaya kaya ako nung inflatables?? CHAROT!! Hahaha!
Girl, yan din tanong sakin ni Gerald hahaha wala naman silang weight limit na sinabi kaya push lang hahaha baka this month mag-Inflatable sila Gerald, tanong ko sakanya kung kinaya ba sya hahaha
OMG, I’m so jealous. lol. So lucky of you to have already gone there. This looks extra fun! A perfect place for active, playful 20 somethings who loves the water, aka me. haha (except the active part)
Haha I’m sure kahit di ka active, mapapa-“active” ka haha sobrang fun, you’d want to try all the obstacles!!!
I just saw a video of this on Facebook! It looks so much fun and you and your friends definitely look like you really enjoyed your trip. Hopefully we can go there for the summer! :)
Yes it is really fun and exciting! Have you already visited Inflatable Island? :)
Again, thank you sa invite Mei! Sana next time ulit ;) It was nice meeting you both! <3
Sa uulitin! :)
This looks so fun, especially now that summer is approaching and the heat is becoming unbearable!
You guys look like you enjoyed your time. Will definitely add this to my bucket list or this summer 😊
We really did enjoy Inflatable Island! :) Have you already visited?
Huhu ang saya!!!! Parang ang sarap tumalon talon tapos mapagod ka lang ganun haha!
Ganda ng photos mo :D
Thanks Jhanz :) Yes sobrang saya di mo mafifeel ang pagod haha pero paguwi mo dun lang sasakit katawan mo hahaha
I’m up for the challenge!!! This place is now all over my social media accounts! I’m sure it’s going to be a big hit soon, I also felt relieved when you mentioned online booking. Cos I’m afraid it could be crowded soon, now that news about this place just got viral. I really hope to visit this place one day, but I still have a lot on my list and I’m not rich either. LOL! Let’s see then.
Oo nga okay nga na may online booking sila kasi for sure hassle kung sa phone lang or something mas sure ung online para may confirmation kna agad hehe
Haha one at a time lang, I think mas accessible naman to and mas affordable since madali lang puntahan :)
Same with Da’s comment. Kainggit kayo, girls. And nafeatured pa sa tv. Yes, may friends na kaming ~famouzzz~. Hahaha! I’m trying to convince my family to go here this summer. It’ll probably be really crowded though, so we’ll see.
Kaloka nga yung exposure! Haha Limited naman per day yung tao para ma-control nila ung crowd. So for sure maeenjoy nyo pa din :)
This sounds like super fun! Look at all the flamingo floaties all around!Can’t believe this is the first time I’ve heard of this resort. I’ll definitely visit this with friends! Thank you for sharing.
This is just newly opened, so maybe that’s why you just heard of it. Hehe Have you already visited Inflatable Island?
Looks suuuuuper fun!!! I enjoyed watching KMJS, kayo talaga yung bida dun eh! Hahaha. I can’t wait to bring my friends here. A lot of my friends want to go there. Pero I’ll wait muna na umonti ung tao. I’m sure fully booked na yan this summer. Hahaha.
Haha kaloka nga ung exposure namin dun, di namin inexpect! Haha For sure fully booked nga pero baka mejo humupa na ngayon since May na hehe sila Gerald baka pumunta end of May hehe
WOW! That looks like such an amazing and awesome place. It looks like so much fun. :D
Yes it is really fun and exciting hehe
I was suppose to go here last weekend (for blogging) but I had prior engagements. Looks fun. Will make it a point to try this place out real soon… Maybe after na ng summer para konti na lang tao. xD
Aww, you were invited too? Sayang nag-meet sana tayo! Hehe
I spent my weekend in Nagsasa Cove in Zambales and got to see the Inflatable Island on our way back to Manila. To be honest, I want to jump off the car right away and experience the island myself. Too bad, I can’t extend the weekend. It is a good thing that you enjoyed the place. I hope I can visit the island before summer ends.
Haha sayang, andun na kayo eh, hehe di bale next time! :) Abangan ko sa blog mo if makapunta na kayo :)
Ahh, I wanted to go here since I saw the news on TV Patrol! :) Thank you for this post~ XD
Yes sure. Hopefully you get to visit :) Let me know of your experience hehe
