  • Highlight of The Trip: Balut!

    Nothing can prepare you for such a unique fare. I've read about it on various websites and even searched out pictures of this creature.I'd learnt from the very start that you never take balut lightly and when a host offers it to you, one must never reject it. You see, balut is an egg with a fertilised duck in it. This delicacy can be found around...

Nasugbu Nightlife

    by marktqm Written Aug 26, 2005

    Nasugbu's nightlife revolves around the karaoke clubs along Apacible Blvd where the beach resorts are located. They are open every night of the week. Hint: Please don't even attempt to sing "My Way", "The Way It Used to Be", "Just Once" and "To Love You More", as these are the national anthems of the karaoke fanatics. To be unique, try Air Supply, Bee Gees or any Spanish song. If the waitresses like your singing, they may even ask you to sing a duet with them.

    Dress Code: no dress code. come as you are.

  • Tricycle: Learning How To Travel

    When you're not on a tour, you have to figure out many things by yourself. Fortunately, my friends and I had a local host who helped us throughout our stay in Nasugbu. Without him, we would have been swindled by the tricycle operators.Firstly, in my context, tricycles are what little children will play with. So the first culture shock was when my...

Nasugbu Shopping

    by marktqm Updated Dec 31, 2005

    The Mamaraka Festival is a trade fair that takes place during Holy Week, from shortly before Palm Sunday and ending at Easter. Dozens of stalls are set up at the center of town, Plaza de Roxas, and there is entertainment daily lasting until closing time at night. Local produce and products are highlighted in this fair.

    What to buy: Foodstuffs such as locally grown fruits and vegetables; delicacies like muscovado sugar, rice cakes, pickled vegetables, and the popular cure-all, the Bignay Tea (which tastes like sawdust, eww!).

    Dry goods are also offered in the trade fair.

Nasugbu Warnings and Dangers

  • Resort Touts Posing As NTIC Staff

    Just as our vehicle parked infront of the Nasugbu Tourism Information Center, a man approached us and asked us if we were looking for a beach resort. We ignored him. My husband knocked on the door of NTIC office; the door remained locked and nobody answered. I asked the man (my mistake) if there was anyone inside. He said he was the one on duty. We...

  • Don't go swimming during a typhoon...

    Every year we always have tourists (sometimes locals) getting drowned at the public beach, mostly drunk guys who think they can go swimming when the waves are deadly, especially shortly before, during and just after typhoons. Locals believe the sea claims lives every year as some sort of tribute or tax. When a strong wind is blowing crazily from...

Nasugbu Tourist Traps

  • marktqm's Profile Photo

    by marktqm Written Aug 25, 2005

    If you're driving towards Nasugbu and you don't have any hotel or resort reservations yet, do not entertain the offers from roadside guys who pose as 'guides' or 'hotel agents'. They are only out to get a fat commission from the hotel owners for bringing you to them, and consequently, you will bear the cost of their commission, sometimes up to 50% of the rate. Deal with the hotel owners directly. These 'agents' tend to be aggresive and badmouth other reputable resorts that don't do business with them.

    Unique Suggestions: If a guy on the roadside carrying leaflets/photos tries to flag you down on the way to Nasugbu, don't look them in the eye and continue driving. If you slow down, they will hang on to your vehicle's side mirror all the way to town! What I do is try to run them down then swerve at the last moment. It's a game of bluff but takes practice, ha ha ha.

    Fun Alternatives: Call the tourism office during a work day (63-43-4120222) prior to your visit so you can get good recommendations and contact numbers of resorts. This service is free.

Nasugbu Off The Beaten Path

  • Barangay Balaytigue: Fishing Village

    My friends and I arrived at a fishing village in Balaytique. When we arrived, the weather turned gloomy. We started to mingle with the children with what little time we had. But we had to take shelter when the rain started to pour. Zinc roofs were good enough to keep us dry.Once the rain has eased, we continued with our intended mission - to feed...

  • Getting To Barangay Balaytique

    We took a short 30 minutes tricycle ride from Nasugbu to Balaytique. The vehicle had to climb a mountain ridge and from that vantage point, we soaked in the beauty of what Philippines has to offer - wide expanse of sea on the right, and padi fields on the left. The camera in my head captured so many lovely images.The roads were in pretty good...

    Unlike surfing, skimboarding starts on the beach. The skimboarder stands within running distance from the point of entry into the water with the skimboard in hand and waits for a wave. As the desired wave approaches the skimboarder runs towards the water. Depending on conditions the board is either dropped on a thin layer of water from a receding...
