NAGSASA ISLAND COVE IN ZAMBALES
1. It’s a five hour-ride from Manila. You can travel by car and leave it in Pundaquit, the take off point to the islands in Zambales, for Php 200 per night.
2. From Pundaquit, you will have to rent a boat for Php 2000. It’s an hour-boatride to the island. The waves may be a little scary.
3. Cellular phones are of no use. There’s no signal in there. No stressors too.
4. There are few sari-sari stores in the Island. Expect that the prices are double the usual. You may want to buy goods needed from their wet market before taking the boat, and be a little adventurous in cooking.
5. The stores sell bonfire for a hundred and fifty.

8. You can also do a little trekking in the mountains surrounding the cove.
9. The stores sell liquors. The most important.
