In 1565, famed Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi established a settlement in Cebu, Philippines. Because of an uneasy situation with the local inhabitants, an expedition was sent north to explore the island of Luzon. Seven years later, de Legazpi's grandson Juan de Salcedo made his way to what would be Subic Bay and later reported on his findings. However, it would not be until 1885 that the Spanish Naval Commission authorized construction of its Arsenal in the area.



Because of Subic Bay's strategic location, its fully sheltered wharf and natural deep harbor, and its beautiful natural environment, Subic became a bastion of foreign military might from the 1800s to the early 1990s.



In the twenty-first century, Subic Bay enjoys its reputation as a major international tourism destination. With its pristine waters and diverse ecology, Subic Bay stands as a model for sustainable development.
