This was the view that bid us a safe trip as we were to ride a boat from Pundaquit to Nagsasa. During the boat ride, which lasted for an hour, we were able to witness the sky turn from blue with a hint of orange, to pitch black with the stars shining as though they were projections in a planetarium. The beautiful sky above us, the salty smell of seawater in the air, and the waves kept us company and hindered us from getting bored.
A trip to Nagsasa is the perfect escape from the busy city, and don't even try to cheat during your stay in paradise by being attached to your phone, because once your there no amount of stretching your arm up or looking for different nooks and crannies in the place will help you find even just one flimsy bar of signal.
The trip from Manila to the cove was a good 5 hours, but believe me it was worth it, and the whole trip back and forth, plus our stay in the cove itself only cost us 1700 php each, a small price to pay for a short date with paradise. Nagasasa cove offers a camping and beach experience rolled into one,.
