It's total land area of 18,500 hectares is distributed among 17 barangays (Asinan, East Bajac-Bajac, Banicain, Baretto, New Cabalan, Old Cabalan, Gordon Heights, East Tapinac, West Tapinac, Kababae, Kalalake, Ilalim, Kalaklan, Mabayuan, Pag-asa and Sta. Rita) former US reservation and the Negrito Resettlement areas. Other than the city proper, which is located on a 6.48 sq. kms. Tidal flatland, Olongapo City is characterized by rugged and mountainous terrain.

Olongapo City is a two hour drive from Manila via the North Expressway, passing through Bulacan, Pampanga and Bataan. Turning right at the San Fernando exit, you can head straight to Olongapo via the Olongapo Gapan Road, which will lead you to Dinalupihan, Bataan and eventually, Olongapo City. From Zambales to Pangasinan, Olongapo City can be reached through the National Road, going Southward.

Visitors to Subic can take a 12-hour jungle survival course, visit an Aeta tribal village, take a bay cruise, explore the coves, end up at the white-sand beach of Grande Island, engage in water sports, go horseback riding or simply enjoy the scenic view of the sea. Subic, the former US naval base in the Philippines, is now a hub for commerce and tourism.

Between 1947 and 1992 the U.S. Navy operated Subic Naval Base, which became the busiest port in the Pacific and was America's largest Naval installation outside the United State. Aside from Naval operations, the base with its sprawling virgin rainforest and spectacular beaches was used for jungle survival and maritime operations training. During the Vietnam era the recreational facilities were developed and enhanced and Subic became the premier Rest and Recreation destination in the Far East. In 1992 the base reverted to the Philippine Government conversion on the base into freeport is a national priority program of the Philippine Government.

Apart from now being a center for commerce and industry, Subic which takes about 30 minutes by plane and 2 hours by land also offers a unique combination of attractions, including first-class hotels, duty free shopping, golf, horseback riding, scuba diving, water sports and even jungle treks. In Subic, you can enjoy one of the Philippines' last virgin forests.
