“Too cold!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Date of visit: March 29, 2013

It's always too crowded and the water is cold. The shore is quite filthy due to garbage. Always watch your kids because always wavy as well.

“Popular Surfing Site and Chill Out for Local Folks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

Lived for several years in the 80s and 90s near this beach and has visited this beach for countless times then. Just visited here again after more than 10 years and found it to be cleaner and the huts that line the beach are now gone. People take a stroll along the beach front with their friends, kids and partner. More foreigners are discovering this surfing haven and so it has become more of a center for that sports. Our favorite restaurant Leo's is still around for that great fresh seafood cuisines which we always enjoy eating while having the fresh sea wind to cool you off on a hot day.

“Catherine's Resort, Daet, Camarines Norte”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

This resort just opened April 2010. situated at the far side of bagasbas Beach, from the road you wont see this Italian inspired restaurant and resort. They got a small pool, 100/head for non-hotel visitors. Hotels/ room rates are ok. They have Trailer houses beachfront which costs around 2500-3500 for 6pax. Hotel rooms are 1750 upto 4000, depending on the number of guests.

They have surfboards to rent, 150/hour and they also offer half day rent.
The restaurant looks like bubba Gump and a bit of Outback steakhouse. Even the toilet is very impressive. Their meals are ok and well served even if it takes 20 minutes plus..
Surfing wise, bagasbas is really paradise for surfers.. The waves are pretty strong to let you learn to surf. The flatness of the grounds wont hurt your feet and knees incase you fall.

“Surfie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

As a person who doesn't have any experience in Surfing, this place became my training ground.
The people there were so nice. :)
And my trainer there is so patient and kind.
I really enjoyed the waves though it was scary at first.
Everything was worth it!~ ^_^
