    Nagsasa Cove Travel Guide

    April 9, 2017

    Resorts within Nagsasa Cove have narrower cuts which equate to smaller camping sites. Smaller doesn’t necessarily mean bad, on the upside there are fewer people sharing the bathroom and the owners/managers of the resort tend to have a more personalized (warmer) approach towards their guests.

    • Food stalls have limited and very basic options – usually offering beer, juice, soda and a few snacks
    • Best to buy from the market before heading to Nagsasa so you can prepare and cook your own meals.
