Talisayin Cove - San Antonio Zambales

My friends and I have been hearing about Talisayin Cove the last time we were at Pundaquit Beach.  Captain Tiago also suggested that we should visit the place and also Nagsasa Cove.  Since we didn't have the budget and time to visit these places then, we told Tiago that we will be back.

So here we are for another adventure!  Yes! Adventure because we planned to stay overnight at Talisayin Cove.  What's so special about Talisayin Cove?  It's the pristine water, the chance to be with nature and to escape from the noisy and busy urban life.  Travel time from Pundaquit Beach to Talisayin took us about 40 - 50 minutes.

Thirty minutes before sunset, the Banca reached the shore of Talisayin Cove.  We rented a tent from Tiago's parents who live there for more than two decades now.  Tiago's parents offered us their Nipa hut for a discounted price.  The place wasn't crowded, unlike Anawangin Cove which is good because it will make you feel like you are one of the locals.

They said there is no electricity but we had it for maybe three hours.  Tiago's brother (I forgot his name) played "Pusong Bato from their nipa hut, taking his chance while generator powered electricity is available.  We had a bonfire at the shore after sunset and it was great!

We woke up early to be able to see Talisayin Cove in bird's eye view, a 40-minutes hike from the foot of the mountain to its summit.  Christian, who haven't experienced hiking complained that his legs were hurting so we had to slow down.

  1. hi, just like to ask, do you have the number of the boatman? how much did you spend for an overnight trip?
    i understand that the entrance fee for overnight is 100. if you were to rent a tent, how much would it be?
