Subic Bay Freeport

A strategic and competitive gateway to your market

Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ) is the first free port of the Philippines and one of the world's successful models of military base conversion into socio-economic purposes.

Carved from the former United States Naval Base, once the largest U.S. military naval base in Asia and home to the US Seventh Fleet, SBFZ is 68.35 miles (110 kilometers) from Manila and covers 262 square miles (670 square kilometers).

It is located in the Central Luzon region and straddles portions of the city of Olongapo and the town of Subic in the province of Zambales, as well as the towns of Hermosa and Morong in the province of Bataan.

Subic Bay opens to the South China Sea while the western part of its harbor faces the Zambales mountain range, making it naturally sheltered from typhoons.
