Nagsasa Cove, San Antonio

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Nueva Ecija Province
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.

  • One of most beautiful beach I have ever seen.
  • Awesome experience! If you need some peace and quiet, Nagsasa cove is for you. Better than Anawangin cove if you ask me. Plus the bangkeros who ferry you from San Antonio are very accommodating. Be ready though as there is no signal here. And bring Off lotion and katol of you will be staying for the night.
  • Best place to detach yourself from the city life
  • A perfect place to relax and enjoy. I really love this place.
  • Road trip: (Unplanned trip, since our original Bolinao tour got cancelled) we drove from Manila to Pundaquit. We left the car in the port and pay the parking fee of 100 pesos, for overnight may be 200 pesos. SInce this is just a sudden trip, we have to look for a boat to rent going to Nagsasa. Just ask around and locals would make offer. Important Note: do not close any deal yet with a local then later on you'll find a cheaper offer then get that offer, that's a big NO NO for them. If you forgot to buy foods, don't worry there is a mini grocery store there to buy your stuffs. We rented a boat for just the 2 of us (Anawangin and Nagsasa). Note: Bring extra money as they may offer you some side trips that you may want and there is no near ATM in the port. We arrived at Nagsasa (off season) and it was the best timing, only us a another group of 4 were in the island. Best place to relax, the beach is shallow. You can hike (picture taken when we hiked up to the mountain). You may rent cottages (Note: the place we stayed is owned by Aetas which would help guard your stuffs and they are kind people). Source of water for bathing: they have fresh source of water from the mountain which they store in drums and there are no faucets. Can't wait to go back! p.s. It would be best to have some activities on the island soon. ;)
