San Miguel was located on the South China Sea, about 26 miles (1 hour drive) north of the U.S. Naval Base at Subic Bay. The station took its name from the small fishing barrio (village) of San Miguel, a suburb of San Antonio, in the province of Zambales, on the Philippine island of Luzon. The station covered 2,158 acres.

San Antonio, Zambales is about 10 minutes from the beach. It is also near Subic City, which is about a 30 minute drive. San Antonio is a fishing village overlooking two islands, named the Capones Islands. Just a few minutes drive to the former U.S. Naval Communication Station at San Miguel. San Miguel was about 3 km from San Antonio. The entire stretch of the Zambales province in the West is rimmed by the crystal-clear waters of the South China Sea.
