Top 30 Favorite Spots in the Philippines: 19.Anawangin and Nagsasa Coves


The summer breeze is blowing somewhere near and the summer sunshine is already making its presence felt.  For many of us, the beach season comes right after the mad holiday season, and some of us are itching to feel the sand on our feet and the salt on our skin. 

If you're looking for perfect family and barkada getaways near Manila, Anawangin and Nagsasa Coves in Zambales are awesome picks. With its white sand beach, a scenic river and mountain view,  crystal clear waters, and great setting for sunrise and sunset, these two famous coves simply took my breath away when we first met. Dirt cheap budget, perfect place to commune with nature, and a company of great friends, these are some of my camping experiences which stuck with me for a long time. I still consider these trips my favorite weekends while traveling the Philippines. 

With the fame it has been enjoying for the past years, it's no surprise that these two coves are heavily packed with visitors during summer. I appeal to those planning a trip there to not leave any trash, especially in the beach area. Bring a trash bag and dispose it properly. Better yet, take it home with you.

    3. No worries at all, mark. My pleasure to help. I wonder if you plan to travel alone or if you'll be in group. Budget depends on the number of people travelling. Nagsasa is about 30 minutes away from Anawangin and although I remember there is a small sari sari store in Nagsasa, make sure to bring your own provisions (food, water) just to be safe. It's also important to waterproof your things as the boatride going there can be pretty rowdy. cheers!

  2. hi mam. i want to thank you for the blog. i fell in love with the beach when i spent summer vacation in Bohol. i suggest that you try visiting there.. the views are just as breathtaking as the ones uve visited.. but in Bohol the beach is like Boracay less the crowd and pollution.. it also has long stretches of coast.. white sand, crystal blue waters.. id like to make a blog of that summer vacation however all of my pictures were lost.. im sure you wont regret going there! im marketing the place because they need to boost their tourism to recover from the recent eartquake. thanks!
