    Trek to Nagsasa Cove from San Martin, Subic

    by monina_c Updated Apr 21, 2012
    first glimpse of the cove

    There are a lot of options for hikers in Subic. My latest experience is the Nagsasa Traverse but you can also opt for the traverse through Mt. Balingkilat or Cinco Picos and a host of others.

    The hike from the jump off point in Brgy. San Martin, Subic to Nagsasa Cove takes about 5-6 hours depending on how fast you walk.

    This activity can be organized with the help of the local Aeta Chieftain Jimmy Ablong (09219543215) who will organize the guides and the boat for you.

    IMPORTANT:
    You need to write a letter of intent with a list of participants addressed to the Mayor of Subic, copy furnished the Police Chief Inspector and Chieftain Ablong.

    It is best to start out very early in the morning (3:00a.m.) so you can catch the sunrise at the summit and miss the heat of the day on the last leg of the trail.

    Cost of the Activity: P1100/pax give or take a few pesos
    Deatailed costing:
    Guide - P120/pax (P600/guide:5 guests)
    Van - P600/pax (P6000 - Mla-Subic-Mla all in - Urvan seats 10 upwards)
    If you want to hire a van, you may call: 0921-4567675 or 0915-5688242
    Boat fare - P250/pax (Nagsasa- Pundaquit)
    Local Tax - P20/pax
    Entr. Fee - P50/pax (Nagsasa Beach)
    Add: P200 to defray the cost of the guide fetching you from the Subic Police Station.

    Bring at 2 liters trail water and your breakfast and lunch. Your group is also expected to bring food for the guides. They bring their own trail water.

    Rent a cottage around the bay

    Cottage by the bay

    Around Subic Bay there are cottages that you can hire for a day. Great if you have a large gathering of people for picnics and parties so they can all enjoy a pleasant swim at the bay. The facilities have kitchen, benches, fans and even karaoke machines! Very reasonably priced.

    Stroll on the boardwalk

    by Ramonq Written Feb 28, 2012

    The boardwalk is a pleasant esplanade overlooking the beach and passes along fine restaurants and hotel accommodation. One can have a barstop and relax to enjoy the view while having an ice cold San Miguel or pina coladas

    PATIENCE is a virtue...just take PICTURES

    by paolodecastro Updated Nov 22, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waiting for my turn in the rappelling activity....

    Why i say this cliche....
    because all the activities requires you to wait
    some activities like rappelling and superman requires you to wait and wait and wait..........
    some guest fret......
    some guest smithered at someone who is so kapal to make singit in the line...........

    but my tip here is that
    why waste your time fretting...
    if it still not your turn for the activity - TAKE PICTURES.........
    STRIKE A POSE.........with your friends like i did hahahahahahahaahaa

    Early bird catches the worm .......you know

    by paolodecastro Updated Nov 20, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The earlier you are in the Treetop Adventure
    the better (Applicable only on the peak season durig the months of April-May)
    at this time of the season....

    They usually have so many guest who make an early appointment
    in this case the guests (usually 3 buses) who made an appointment will get the opportunity
    to be first in every activity.........they prioritize them

    That is why as they said....Early bird catches the Worm...........late bird cathes NOTHING........ :(

    PRIORITIZE....PRIORITIZE....PRIORITIZE......

    by paolodecastro Updated Nov 20, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I say this because there are seven activities you have to do
    in the Treetop Adventure (This is applicable in the peak season usually April-May)

    and all the activities require you to be patient
    the problem would be......if there will be too many guest for the day.........
    the best thing to do here is to prioritize your activities........
    the first two activities that you have to take priority will be
    the superman and the rappelling..........
    the rest is quite ok..........

    you have to prioritize so that you can finish all the activities
    without to much WAITING....

    Silver Surfing ........ seesaw in the air

    by paolodecastro Updated Nov 20, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    I called this seesaw in the air
    because its like that
    i just dun no why they called this silver surfing......hahhaahahhaa

    this activity is very tiresome specially in your arms (for first timers like me)
    but after the activity
    you will just think
    that actually this activity is very safe
    you can even
    take your arms away from the grab bar
    its still safe.............

    also i forgot that in every event
    there is a staff
    who will take your pictures
    thats why
    you have to be aware of them
    dont be caught unaware........
    or else....you will get a not so good pictures hahahahahahahahah

    Do NOt be CAUGHT UNGUARDED........:)

    by paolodecastro Updated Nov 20, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the word SCARED is all over my face hahahhahaaha

    In every activity (there are seven actually)
    there are treetop adventure staff who will take your picture......
    usually they take pictures in the best spot (maybe they already know where it is)
    although you might say that you have your own camera...
    there are activities there that you cannot take pictures........
    thats is why they are there.......
    In my case when you look my pic in the rapelling activity( the one with the mission impossible pose) i was caught unguarded.......
    you can see i t in my face.......................i was scared to death hahahahahahahahaaaa
