San Antonio is a 4th class municipality in the province of Zambales, Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 28,248 people in 6,483 households.

San Antonio was formerly just a hunting lodge where hunters from the northern towns of the province would stay to rest. The first Ilocano families from the Paoay area of Ilocos Norte arrived in 1830 and founded the first settlement that grew into what is now the town.

The town was the site of the United States Navy San Miguel Naval Communications Station. After Mt. Pinatubo's eruption in 1991 the Americans decided to leave, it is now used for educational purposes of the Philippine Navy and merchant marine.
