Bagasbas with CWC Sidetrip | Camarines Norte Travel Guide

Bagasbas with CWC Sidetrip | Camarines Norte Travel Guide

Bagasbas Beach and CWC has always been known as a surfing and wakeboarding haven for enthusiasts.

And we didn’t really go all out of our way to see these spots. Why? Because such were sitting in front us. Figuratively, of course.

All we have to do is exert a little effort and voila, we’re there! What am I talking about? Read on.

JUMP-OFF POINT

If you are to travel via a plane ride from Manila, the nearest jump off point is Naga City. We did such and flew via Cebu Pacific.

From Naga, you have to do another 1.5 hour land travel to get to Bagasbas. But since we were all tired, we arranged for private van transfer so as not to be hassled by commuting.

Or if you have time, you can opt for the night buses that can take 10-12 hours. If my memory serves me right, Philtranco bus lines caters Manila to Daet v.v. routes.

WHAT WE DID

Bagasbas Beach is just steps away from our hotel and CWC was on the way. No sweat, right?

So check out these spots was what we did, of course! You know what they say, andun ka na hindi mo pa ba titingnan?!

Spots to visit:

Bagasbas Beach
Since this beach was just across our hotel, we tend to visit it mostly during the morning and merienda time. I know! A view like this? Yes, please!

Bagasbas Beach is also known as a surfing spot and at certain months, some surfing competitions are being held here.

And with the huge and strong waves, I also don’t think that playful swimming is recommended. You can walk by the shore though.

There are also nice facilities in our hotel as the swimming pool, playground where we did monkey bars and indulged ourselves on the swing set and a basketball court.

I thought about posting our playground pics but then I changed my mind kasi mukha kameng timang. Pero masaya!

CWC (CamSur Watersports Complex)
This wasn’t my first time to visit CWC but since it was on the way to Naga Airport, we drop by just for my travel crew to check out.

We only have like 30 minutes to spare so all we can is picture-taking and a little bit of sightseeing.

WHERE WE STAYED

Since there were 6 of us, we stayed at one of the AC dorm rooms of Bagasbas Lighthouse Hotel.

I am sure you’ll find it interesting too since the room is a renovated container van. Don’t worry, it is clean and well-maintained. Plus, it is directly across Bagasbas Beach.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS

Yema Cake – Tasted this goodie when we stopped over in Naga City for lunch. This is most delicious pastry I’ve got to taste in years! I swear, I am not even exaggerating!

TRAVEL TIPS

• Do not go there on a February or any month that the polar ice caps are still melting. Sobrang lamig! We couldn’t stand being in the water that long.

• Yema cake can be bought in Baker’s Plaza. Please don’t miss it. Masarap talaga, guys!

• You can buy your pasalubong in Naga City’s Sentro. There you can choose from toasted siopao, pili nuts and my fave, tablea.
