Nagsasa Cove (San Antonio, Zambales)
We were supposed to go to Anawangin Cove until our tour organizer suggested Nagsasa. No regrets since the camp (camp wagi) had ample toilets to accommodate its guests and the island wasn't crowded after all. Our package includes boat transfers, use of tents and a cottage, and 3 meals (lunch, dinner & bfast). There were IPs in the island which makes the stay more authentic-kee and they were very nice and hospitable too. The waters of Nagsasa is clear and suitable for swimming.
The only downside in this travel is when we opt to trek all the way to the falls which for me isn't worth the trek. We walked for about 2 hours going up at around 2:15pm and i tell you it wasn't an easy trek with sun up bright, rocky uphill walk and kaingin remnants all over the trail. Upon reaching the falls, oh man it was just a small falls though the swimming area is nice and very refreshing due to its cold water and since it's far from the camp and only a couple of houses are a bit near the falls, the falls that time were for our group alone. (Note that there's a tour fee of P100/head; and an entrance fee to the falls for P20/head)
Overall, it was a nice experience - sleeping in tents may not be that comfortable but the experience is something to remember and smile about.
No electricity in the island, just gensets. Prices of commodity are double or triple so bring everything that u need before boarding the boat. The ride to Nagsasa is about 40 mins from Anawangin.
