A weekend in Nagsasa Cove

A few hours away (around 4-5) from Manila, is this gem in Zambales. I never heard of the place until recently when a friend told me they were going to Nagsasa Cove. The first thing I did was to look up where the place was and what it looked like. Fast forward a month later, I find myself in a van at 3 in the morning with my closest friends on the way to Nagsasa Cove.

Our van dropped us off in Pundaquit, Zambales. From here, we hopped on a bangka to reach Nagsasa Cove.

We stopped by Capones Island before heading to Nagsasa Cove.

After setting up our tents and eating lunch, we rushed to the beach to swim!

In a nearby hill, you can hike up to see a better view of Nagsasa Cove.
