How to get to Nagsasa cove

Nagsasa cove is located at  San Antonio Zambales.

If you like a camping like beach adventure then this is the place to be.

Currently, the cove is devoid of any hotel, motels or large infrastructures, no celphone signal and electricity. There are just a few houses which served as the caretaker’s house . There are about 2 sarisari store but mind you because the area is secluded, price of commodities are almost double.

There is also a hiking trail that will lead you to a small water fall, although; at summer time these waterfall dries up.

The water current in the cove is relatively calm and the beach front slope gradually.

Comparing to Anawangin, personally, Nagsasa is a much better choice.
