From Ilocos Sur to Zambales, it took us almost 10-11 hrs travelling. We met with our guide in San Antonio Market and Went to Pundaquit where we started the island... More

My first time to visit Zambales and it's worth the 4 hours land and 1 hour boat ride. I fell inlove with the place and its people. See pictures to see for yourself. 😍

The jump-off point to Nagsasa was in Pundaquit, San Antonio, Zambales. Prior to our trip, we already made the necessary arrangements for the boat that we will be riding to the cove. We met up with the boatsman at San Antonio Public Market. This is also where we bought our supplies for the overnight trip. We also paid the environmental... More

We went to Nagsasa cove on a Saturday morning. It was crowded & noisy. We stayed overnight and all I can say is It was so disappointing. The people was shouting & cursing maybe because they are drunk. The caretaker/staff didn't bother to stop them from making too much noise. The videoke was still playing until midnight & i have...

Like it's sister coves in Zambales, this place is so relaxing and quiet. The best camping and stargazing experience I've had. Will go back for the cliff diving and falls that I wasnt able to try. Highly recommended!

Nagsasa cove is best place to visit with friends and hangout over night. There you can spend quality time bcz there won't be a mobile network. Must visit this place! It's worth it!

No signal... More

No electricity and no mobile network connection but it was fun. We enjoyed camping in Nagsasa. I loved the bonfire under the stars.

I've never expected such a breathtaking view and the best part was we were kind of having the beach by ourselves! Some of us actually slept on the beach all night and we literally gazing at the stars while enjoying the breeze from the sea. I love the idea that no resorts are built and we were camping and cooking... More

The 2-day no signal and no electricity in this island is worth it! The beach has clear and clean water as compared to Anawangin. The place is not crowded as well so If you really want to be in a place for relaxing and want camping this is the best place for you. 😀
