This cove... is dense.

From the outer edge of this cove to the beach it took about 10 minutes to ride in and when you look out towards the sea, you only see the sea! You're surrounded by the mountains on both sides and it's just the beach and yourself.

So if you're looking for soft (but really hot) sand, clear waters, hiking, and more... you'll find it at Nagsasa. With no electricity or phone connection, you can even get yourself a night away from the world by beaching camping!

Of all, the islands, bays, and coves in this area, Nagsasa is the cleanest and also the furtherest to get to, about 45 minutes to an hour from Pundaquit Beach where you could catch a boat for 2000 PHP total. If you had driven yourself, you could get straight to the cove, however, most travel by bus and we took the Victory Liner from Manila to San Antonio to stay at one of the many resorts in Pundaquit.

On Nagsasa, there is a sari sari store that sells you snacks and drinks and if you're looking for rentals, they may be able to find something for you. Don't be surprised if the goggles are a little moldy though!

Outdoor canopies are available for rent for 100 PHP total and there is a fee of 50 PHP per person!

If you're looking for specific direction read this!

NOTE: We booked our boats through the owner of the resort we were staying at. But because it's business in the Philippines, I'm pretty confident you could roll up and ask to pay for a ride out. Or as a resort owner to get you a boat.
