This is my first camping trip so I really didn't know what to expect. I have arranged for a package tour, one that I found in sulit.com (wheelmo transport), and they really made our trip hassle free! We were only 9 in the group so we have to pay 1,550 per pax but that includes van rental (you even have a choice if you want a karaoke van, ps3 van or wifi van, we opted for the karaoke van), boat transfers, Nagsasa Fees, tent (our tent was really huge. It was the biggest in Nagsasa! It could house around 13 people), cooler with ice, firewood, charcoal and cooking utensils. Their staff even accompany us at Nagsasa to ensure our safety and to assist us in any way possible. They were so helpful and nice!
The beach was clear, perfect for midnight swimming! It's just really relaxing to just lay down on the sand with your friends and have a good laugh. The night sky is to die for. I swear I haven't seen that much star in my whole life, plus I got to see 3 shooting stars that night!
We opted to go trekking to Nagsasa Falls in the morning. Mind you, it is an one hour and a half walk under the blistering heat and big rocks along the way. I am not a very athletic person so the trek was kinda of a challenge for me. It was kinda a let down that the falls is not that strong because we went there during the summer season and you know how hot it can be. Nevertheless, the brook was really clear and it was a really great place to swim and relax after such a long walk. I would also advise to go up the top of the falls, because it's kinda like a layer falls, just be careful while climbing.
The only downside for me are the trash that campers leave at the shore. It's really not that many but with such a pristine place just one plastic container can be an eyesore. So, please, let's preserve not only Nagsasa Cove but all the places that we will go to. Do not be the 1st person to leave any trash. Another thing is, I don't know if this will be a downside, but I do not like the concrete comfort rooms, they have 3 in Nagsasa. I didn't like it because I was kinda expecting some sort of campy feel to the rest rooms.
We only spent 1,550 plus 150 per pax for food (bring your own food, it's very pricey at the island) and that's about it.
