Tips when visiting Nagsasa and Anawangin Coves


It has been more than a year since the first and last time I went to Nagsasa Cove. Since I wrote about Nagsasa Cove and how to get to there, I have been receiving a lot of comments and inquiries on tips when going to Nagsasa and Anawangin coves.

I have compiled here a list of tips based on what we have experienced during our trip to Nagsasa, Zambales.

Things you should bring:

[unordered_list style=”tick”]

  • Bring your own tent and sleeping bag. If you don’t own one, you may rent one in Pundaquit, San Antonio. You may ask your boatman where to get one.
  • Secure your own jacket. Cold nights at Nagsasa and Anawangin are sometimes unbearable.
  • If you are into serious photography, bring with you your camera, tripod, a wide angle or kit lens, a set of neutral density, graduated neutral density, bi-color, or polarization filters. Make sure to also secure your equipment in a waterproof bag. The boat ride to and from Nagsasa and Anawangin can be rough.
  • Bring enough food and water supply. There are no stores or clean sources of water when you get there.
  • Sunblock, insect repellent and other personal care.
  • If you’re planning of cooking or preparing your own food, be sure to bring with you your basic utensils, fuel, charcoal and other basic cooking tools.
  • Don’t forget to bring your own garbage bag. You will have to bring with you when you leave whatever trash you have during your stay.
  • A first aid kit is also necessary, just in case.


Things you may opt not to bring:

[unordered_list style=”red-x”]

  • A high-end cellphone — Nagsasa Cove and Anawangin Cove both have no cellular reception from all network providers. Since the air in the area is high in humidity and it’s near the sea, there’s a high risk of corrosion for your cellphone and other metallic gadgets when exposed to these conditions.
  • Valuables — On your stay in Nagsasa Cove and Anawangin, it’s possible that you will be sharing the camp area with other tourists. It is best to secure your personal belongings or not bring your valuables at all.


If you can think of other things that I might have missed, please feel free to leave a comment below. I will be updating this post occasionally to reflect your suggestions. Enjoy your next trip to Nagsasa Cove and Anawangin Cove.

  5. May maganda po na beach/camp area sa Tambobong, Pangasinan. Hindi pa siya commercialized kaya sobra ganda ng beach at mababait ang mga tao. There is a new resort there, just starting. Its called PANTALAN BEACH RESORT in Tambobong. Bawal ang maingay na karaoke, cemented parking for 10 cars(50/night), kubo rental at only 1.5k per night and maintenance fees at only 50/head for use of cr and bath kung gusto niyo mag tent lang sa beach!!! Pero very very basic facilities lang. They even offer set meals for groups. Or if you want them to cook merong minimal fees lang. The kubos are built right on the pantalan (port) so GREAT view of the ocean talaga. Maganda yung kubo and can fit 8 to 10 yata. Meron din built in tables made of bamboo lang. Rustic. Its owned by the Bobises so just call nanay Precy bobis or Deo Bobis at SUN#09227154685 or SUN#09236685401 or SMART#09075183062 for reservations and arrangements.
