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.

    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.
