Nagsasa Cove situated at the coast of province of Zambales in Luzon, Philipines. Nagsasa Cove was originally a barren, sandy shore that was dotted here and there with bare rocks. Then, a few years after the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo and the ash has settled down, Agoho trees and other vegetation suddenly sprouted in this otherwise barren shore. Indeed, Mother Nature finds a way to breathe life.

"Wherever we go become a part of us somehow."
Thank you Travel Galore for a safe and happy trip!
Nagsasa Cove in San Antonio, Zambales, used to be rocky until the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, which dumped tons of volcanic ash in many parts of the region.
It was in 2012 when I discovered the happiness in hiking; we traversed Mt. Pundaquit to Anawangin Cove during a super hot summer vacation. And after half a decade, I finally made a come back and witnessed the other side. Among the coves of Zambales (such as Nagsasa, Talisayen and Silanguin) Anawangin is the most prominent and most visited place creating this gorgeous spot a tent city during summer. But this time, we camped at the right spot!
After a five hour trek in Mt. Bira-Bira, we finally made it to Nagsasa Cove.
As soon as we got to Nagsasa Cove, Mang Edgar introduced us to the guy in charge of the campsite. He assigned a cottage for us. We set up our tent just beside our cottage. After getting settled, Justine and Nikki took a nap while Faye and I went around looking for food to buy. Funny thing is that we didnt buy any food and extra water before hiking. Most of us finished our water halfway through the mountain. Imagine hiking with no water and snacks, hahaha! Thankfully we found a store just near our campsite.
