If you're gonna be in subic, there's an area called morong that's about a half-hour away. There are a few resorts on a fine beach. The sand isn't white, but it's very fine, but the best part about the area is that it's practically deserted. You could just waste the entire day checking out the waves. I have heard of a nearer beach to subic, right next to the runway, but I'm not too sure if it actually exists.
Oh, and HKG is a wonderful place. A same-day return airport express ticket costs the same as a one-way ticket. It'll get you to and from the airport with relative ease. The Harbor is a nice place to hang out, and so is the peak on HK island, but if you're feeling adventurous, venture into Mongkok.
