Sighted Online: Nagsasa, The Philippine Outback
Local photographer Ferdz Decena reveals the natural beauty of Nagsasa near San Antonio, Zambales. The locale, mostly untouched by modern civilization, is the perfect setting for the next great fantasy trilogy.
Mr. Decena writes that Nagsasa is more known for its cove. Adventurous tourists can take a Victory liner bus from Metro Manilla bound for Iba, then get off San Antonio (3 hours). A 20-minute trip via tricycle to Pundakit (or Pundaquit) then precedes a 1 hour boat ride to the cove itself.
You’ll have to pay ₱271 for the bus ticket, and ₱30 a head for the tricycle. A round trip on the boat to Nagsasa cove will set you back ₱1,500 to ₱2,000. It’s possible to rent tents at Pundaquit, but you’ll have to bring your own food and drinks. Nagsasa is so remote that it’s outside of cell phone network coverage, and creature comforts are at a minimum.
The cove itself is spectacular, according to Ferdz. Hike around a bit however, and you’ll encounter even more natural beauty. That’s exactly where, based on Decena’s pictures, a great epic should be filmed. Calling all big studios worldwide!
