Nagsasa Cove, Zambales and its lustrous beauty

Nagsasa Cove

If you’re from the busy city of Manila and planning to have a microvacation, I highly recommend Nagsasa Cove. The whole trip would only take 2 to 3 hours including the ride to Mt. Pundaquit, where boats to Nagsasa are located. Going to Nagsasa is pretty simple. Just take bus going to Iba, Zambales from Cubao or Caloocan, ride a tricycle going to Mt. Pundaquit, then ride a boat going to Nagsasa (boat to Nagsasa from Mt. Pundaquit is Php 1,500, good for 4 people).

We left at 5 in the morning and arrived around 9am. In the cove, you can hear the soft and relaxing whooshing sound of the air coming from the mountains. It sounded scary at first and you might wonder, ‘What the heck was that?’ The sound is like when you cup your hands together and put it around your ears.

We stayed here overnight and paid Php 100 for the entrance, camping, and environmental fee. While we wait for the sunset, we seized the day by taking photos, walking by the beach, wandering at the lagoon, and climbing the mountain.

Climbing on top is the most exhilarating experience here in Nagsasa. The spectacular view from the top is amazing. Nagsasa Cove is truly one of the hidden paradises of the Philippines.

Imagine, we only brought Php 1,500 each that time and it already included the transportation (bus, tricycle, boat), entrance fees, and our overnight food. With that amount, we already got to see the beauty of Nagsasa, it is like the tropical version of mountains of Himalaya.

    May iba pa po kayong option maliban sa resort nila Grace Armada na yan. May camping area po sa harap ng isla kung saan mas malamig at may mga cottage din. Nakapunta na ba kayo ng Anawangin or Nagsasa cove? Parang ganun din ang style. Mahangin din at mas maganda ang Magalawa Island hindi naman sa nagyayabang…
    Kung gusto niyo pong i-try na pumunta tawagan niyo po ako sa Manila at tutulungan ko po kayong magcoordinate sa caretaker na isla na uncle ko din na si Uncle Mulo. Ito po yung landline number ko sa Maynila (02)983 0432 or sun number 09222688111 or smart number 09475181409 hanapin niyo lang po si Raymond (ako po yun).

    Ito po ang presyuhan doon sa campsite :

    Boatpick up (2 way)
    — 100/pax-kung galing luan
    — 200/pax-kung galing masinloc

    Entrance fee 100\pax overnight,

    Cottage 1000\night (kasya 5pax)

    — If you like all Package Foods,Entrance, Boat Ride,Cottage, and also Van pwede rin po..

    — Bonfire ( 100 )

    Kasama na po sa entrance fee ang paggamit ng cr at maintenance ng lugar. Ingat lang po na huwag magkalat masyado kasi po maliit lang po na isla yun at mahirap kung magka garbage-problem. You will be spending about 300 or less for food siguro. Maraming nabibilhan ng pagkain sa loob ng island. Puwede rin po kayong magpaluto for a small fee. No available rental of snorkel/mask/fins dun for now so its a good idea to invest on a good set nalang. Wala pa rin po available na rental ng tent pero malapit na po. Mag inquire nalang po kayo kung may available na pagtawag ninyo. Kung magdadala po kayo ng sarili ninyong tent ay libre na po ang puwesto kasi po kasama na po sa entrance fee yun kaya entrance fee nalang at boatride nalang ang babayaran ninyo.

    Ang puwesto na kung san nakatayo ang resort nila grace armada ay may problema kasi lumalabas na nagsquat lang sila dun.Dahil dito tuwing pumupunta ang may ari ng isla na si madam L.Ruiz ay pinapasara nila pang samantala ang resort nila Grace Armada. Dahil dito ay kailangan mag ingat kayo lalo na kung hinihingan kayo ng deposit ni Grace Armada. Kung magkabulilyaso tulad ng nabanggit ko ay hindi niyo na makukuha ang deposit niyo.

    This place looks absolutely beautiful! I missed this in Manila last year, when I went to see a stick and knife (escrima) champion in action. Are there any tour companies that run trip here?

    Keep up the good blog work!

    Hi Maribelle, as long as the waves during those times is not rough then you can go. On each boat, there should be only 4 people. 😉 They have big boats that you can rent as well if you want a double safety.
