Nagsasa Cove in Zambales is one of the many undeveloped treasures in the island of Luzon. Zambales is a province located in the Central Luzon region. Nagsasa Cove in San Antonio is used to be rocky until the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, which dumped tons of volcanic ash in many parts of the region. No wonder that Anawangin Cove has become a favorite desination among tourists. Apart, its Instagram-worthy attributes, there’s another reason why tourists can’t even seem to get enough of this place, its affordability.
Visitors who love nature and the beach will definitely enjoy a quiet stroll along the beach, the fantastic sunset view. Nagsasa Cove lets you get close to nature like no other destination can offer. Without the amenities of the usual beach resort setting, tourists can still enjoy some popular water sports activities like watercraft rides, snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing. Climbing atop Nagsasa Cove will get your jaw drop in awe at the breath-taking view of the surroundings. Nagsasa Cove is surely a wonder way to pay tribute to Mother Nature.
Also, tourists will enjoy Nagsasa Cove the best when the waves are calm and undisturbed, from January to March. Summer months of April and May will see the cove swarmed with local and foreign visitors looking for a refreshing way to escape the heat of summer.
