Nagsasa Cove, San Antonio

(4.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Climb the hills surrounding Nagsasa Cove, then reward yourself with a dip in clear blue water. Mountains and hills filled with agogo trees surround the sandy, ash-gray beach, whose calm, crystal clear water provides good conditions for stand-up paddleboarding, with rental equipment available on site. To explore the surroundings, simply rent a boat, or take stroll inland and explore the impeccable nature. You can buy some refreshments and rest under the trees, and you can even camp on site, although you should charge your equipment in advance, as the beach lacks electricity.

  • 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...  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....  more »
  • 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. High...  more »

  • Place is very good for secluded vacations, as it's not that well known (yet). But the lack of sanitary bathrooms are just disappointing. Typical of many Filipino scenic spots. The little tricycles that take you to the place are cheap, 30 pesos per head from the town square to the beachfront. But they are so tiny that even a guy who's merely 1.78m(5'10") tall will need to crouch whether seated in the cabin or behind the driver. Overall the great scenery made up for the shittiness of the facilities, that's why I gave 3 stars when the place deserves 4 stars or 4.5 on average. Rural Filipinos just seem to be unable to understand the value of basic amenities.
  • The place can be pretty quiet with a good scenic viewpoint less than an hour's trek away.
  • Far enough away that the only source of electricity are the solar cells of the local store owner. Peaceful, clean beach. They have comfort rooms so you can do your business if you need to. I think they also rent out tents if you need one. They will offer to guide you on a trek for a price. Did not try to haggle because I just wanted to sleep when we went there.
  • Perfect for camping. It has a convenient restroom with good water supply. :)
  • Great sceneries, lovely beach. Even there is not signal in the I think that makes it a great place it makes you admire more the place than you looking at your gadgets. It also has a gorgeous sky at night
