A Complete Travel Guide to Nagsasa, Anawangin, and Capones + Sample Itineraries

Are you planning on a relaxing but adventurous out of town trip? An overnight microvacation maybe?

If you’re a student or a young-at-heart working individual living in the busy region of NCR or places near that, having a very affordable overnight island hopping trip to Nagsasa, Anawangin, and Capones should be on top of the list.

Brgy. Pundaquit

Understanding Nagsasa, Anawangin, and Capones

Nagsasa and Anawangin Coves are mountain slopes. Nagsasa is the farthest cove bypassing Anawangin with a travel time of approximately 40 to 45 mins while Anawangin is 30 to 35 mins via boat from Mt. Pundaquit.

However, for Capones, it is the nearest island to Mt. Pundaquit with a travel time of 20 mins. Mt. Pundaquit is actually the rendezvous point where you can rent boats going to the three destinations.

Capones Lighthouse

For Capones Island, it is recommended that your boat dock where rock formations are and you will appreciate Capones more by trekking going to the lighthouse.

There are no fancy rooms or accommodations in these three wonders, so when planning for an overnight trip, tents and camping supplies and resources are must haves. There is no electricity as well, so bring flashlights and extra batteries. To save the batteries of your cellphones, just turn it off during your entire stay since there is completely no reception or network signal in these islands. However in Capones, the network signal is very weak.

Best months to go are between Januarys to Marchs, as waves are undisturbed. Aprils to Mays are also good months; however, both places are too crowded. Anawangin is actually more crowded than Nagsasa.

For better understanding you can also refer to this table:

Destination Geography Travel time from Mt. Pundaquit Recommended time spent Recommended activities to do
Nagsasa Cove Mountain slope 45 mins to 1-hr Overnight [1] Explore the Nagsasa Waterfalls, trek on its mountain
Anawangin Cove Mountain slope 30 to 35 mins 2 to 3 hours [2] Trek on its mountain or go to the farthest right side of the cove (if facing the sea), stone formations are amazing
Capones Island 20 mins 2 to 4 hours Trek to Capones Lighthouse

[1] [2] You can interchange time spent for Nagsasa and Anawangin

Things to bring

Since there are limited resources in the island, it is recommended that you bring basic camping resources. I suggest that you bring these important things:

  • Tent or hammock plus blankets and pillows for comfort
  • Portable stoves or grill supplies
  • Cooking tools and equipment (portable stove, knives, can opener, lighter, matches, etc.)
  • Rice meal, canned goods, chips, breads and spreads
  • Gallons or liters of water
  • Flashlights or headlamps plus extra batteries
  • Plastic bags or trash bags (take care of your environment)
  • Waterproof bags or cases

How to Get There

Zambales is 2 to 3 hours away from Manila to Brgy. Pundaquit.
Just go to one of Victory Liner stations and get yourself a ticket to Iba, Zambales or Sta. Cruz, Zambales (Php 251.00).

When nearing the town of San Antonio, tell the conductor to drop you off the town’s public market. Then ride a tricycle going to Mt. Pundaquit (Php 30.00 per head) which is 25 to 30 min tricycle ride. Upon reaching Mt. Pundaquit, rent a boat ride.

Brgy. Pundaquit

Renting a boat ride

San Antonio, Pundaquit Tourism has fixed pricing yet, sometimes, can be smaller if you know how to negotiate well; however, to help locals earn a decent living, STOP HAGGLING!

The price[3] shown below is from Mt. Pundaquit to Nagsasa including island hopping to Anawangin and Capones.

Boat type:
Small boat. Capacity of 1 to 4 people – Php 1,500 to Php 1,800
Big boat. Capacity of 10 to 15 people – Php 3,000 to Php 4,000

[3] Price is not updated as of 2011 when I traveled there.

Estimated Budget and Expenses

There are now several travel tours or agencies that offers this island hopping adventure. But I still prefer a D-I-Y (do-it-yourself) itinerary when traveling because its much cheaper and no time constraints. To give you an idea, here’s the estimated costs for a D-I-Y trip:

PHP 1,500 to 1,800 – Anawangin, Nagsasa, Capones
PHP 800 to 1,200 – Anawangin only
PHP 1,200 to 1,500 – Nagsasa only

Recommended minimum number of participants is 4 for small boats to divide the costs of boat expenses.

Other Fees

Nagsasa overnight fee: Php 100
Anawangin overnight fee: Php 100
Entrance/Environmental fee: Php 50 [4]

[4] For example you chose an overnight stay in Nagsasa or Anawangin, you will have to pay Php 100 + Php 50 per head.

Safety

Since you will be sleeping in a tent, I know that safety is your concern as well. But you don’t have worry as people are trustworthy in this place. Boatmen and sari-sari store owners will always watch your things. So far, we haven’t heard any theft incident happened in this place.

    Travel Guide to Anawangin or Nagsasa!!!
    The following is a list of things that would make your stay in Anawangin Cove a smooth, comfortable, and enjoyable. Take note that some of these are optional and it’s really up to you if you want to bring them all. Before deciding which are necessary and which are not, always take into consideration that:
    *There are no resorts in Anawangin Cove.
    *There is no electricity in the place.
    *There is no cellphone signal reception in the area.
    *Merchandise sold on the beach are very expensive.

    Anawangin Cove Checklist

    *Cash – As mentioned, there are no ATMs near the place. All transactions will have to paid with cash.

    *Tent – This is the only form of accommodation in Anawangin Cove. You may choose to bring your own tent or avail our package. Or sleep outside on a mat but remember that the weather is unpredictable and it gets really cold early in the morning.

    *Paperplate, Spoon, Fork & Cups – this is a very important necessity to bring so don’t forget to add it on your list..

    *Blanket – A light one should be sufficient.

    *Hammock – You may want to bring a hammock for relaxation. There are a lot of trees available for you to tie the hammock on to. There are also peddlers selling hammocks for PhP200-Php300 (depending on the season) with “free-installation”.

    *Clothes – Make sure you bring enough for your overnight stay. You may also want to bring a jacket during the Amihan season to protect you from the cold.

    *Sunglasses – The surroundings can get very bright.

    *Camera/Camera accessories – The place is very picturesque. You may want to bring an extra battery because there’s no electricity for charging.

    *MP3 player/Earphones/Portable speakers – Play music for extra relaxation.

    *Goggles/Snorkeling gear – There are fishes and sea florals but the place is really more of a swimming than a snorkeling place.

    *Ziplock bag – To keep you belongings, specially gadgets, dry

    *Toiletries

    *Portable lamp/Candles – There are lightweight, cheap lamps sold in Ace Hardware/SM Workshop for less that a hundred bucks. Make sure to bring enough batteries as needed. You can bring candles for additional illumination.

    *Portable gas range/Butane – This will make cooking a lot easier. Portable gas ranges sell from PhP600 to PhP1500 in Ace Hardware/SM Workshop depending on the style/model. Butane canisters cost ~PhP60 in any hardware store.

    *Charcoal – In case you want to cook/grill, bring some specially if you don’t have a portable gas range.

    *Spoon/Fork/Plate/Cup – Bringing your own utensils, plates, and cups instead of using plastic ones bought from the grocery store is always best for the environment.

    *Food/Snacks – Don’t bring too much or too extravagant food. Remember that the place encourages the simple life.

    *Canned goods – Backup food is good to have. You may also live on a diet of canned goods in the place.

    *Can opener

    *Dishwashing liquid

    *Trash Bag – Make sure you bring a big trash bag to prevent litter from taking over the beautiful place. Trash bags can be left with the caretakers before you leave.

    There are a lot of items you can borrow from your boatman, especially if you already built a good relationship. Remember that they lend you stuff out of the goodness of their hearts but giving them a well-deserved tip would be much appreciated.

    Hi, Ada!

    Thank you for the very informative post on Pundaquit. :) I’m planning to go there (and to Nagsasa) soon. I’d love to camp overnight in Nagsasa, but I don’t own any camping gear. Haha. Did you bring your own tent and sleeping bag, or are there rental places in Pundaquit?

    Thanks again. :D Cheers!
