IMG_0647After 2 years, I returned to the beach that has a good spot in my heart – Nagsasa Cove.


My first visit here last October 2009 (actually) was not through a boat trip, but, it took a 6-7 hour climb, worth the trek! There were fewer locals then, clear, untouched and no resorts in sight!

IMG_0541I had mixed feelings going back. Has Nagsasa got crowded, since it became a popular destination a few years ago? The answer is YES. Many came and open up resorts, built fences side by side. The cove almost lost its unspoiled nature.

(Almost) One spot did not drastically change… Mang Ador’s place. He owns (or caretakes?) a 1-2 kilometer beach front located on the left side of the cove; Stay here for a quiet scenery, rather than the crowded resorts on the opposite side. No fences, only cottages and huts. Mang Ador also has a mini store, if you missed out at San Antonio’s public market.

 I was amazed that Nagsasa cove is clean and jellyfish free. Fishes roam around freely, unlike our last visit here, the water was polluted with a few trash, seaweed and jellyfish.
