Nagsasa Cove DIY Trip | Zambales Backpacking Series
- Before flying out to Zambales, my cousin Cindy from www.fromseatosummit.wordpress.com had done an extensive research for this DIY trip. Before we left Cebu, we have already contacted Mang Mike from Brgy. Pundaquit who operates boat trips to the islands and the coves. We were lucky enough to have reached him because we were not ripped-off. He was so kind enough that he even arranged a trike to fetch us at San Antonio Municipal Hall en route to Pundaquit and another one from Pundaquit to Crystal Beach Resort in San Narciso. Unfortunately my phone was stolen which had Mang Mike's number but I suggest you look for him because he has the most reasonable price for the boat package.
- You should buy everything you need for the camping at San Antonio market before sailing
: foods, charcoals, water, softdrinks, etc.
- When we reached Nagsasa, we were ushered to our cottage and pitched our tent beside it. There were comfort rooms available and a clean water for washing. There's a store with a generator available at night where you can charge your gadgets for 100.00php per charging regardless of the hours.
- Make sure to bring an insect repellent because you're like camping in the wild (No air conditioned rooms, etc.) and a jacket for it could get really cold when the night falls until early in the morning.
- Always clean your campsite before leaving. The best you can do as a visitor is to keep this laid-back beach as clean as possible.
