To get the iconic crescent moon aerial shot of Nagsasa Cove, you head to the rightmost part of the beach, pay an Aeta guide P10, and climb the hill that introduces Mt. Nagsasa. It was hard to resist the urge to keep going up and up and up – but I was in a pink maillot and flimsy slippers which were no match for the rocks and occasionally loose red clay.
Here we spent a few moments taking in the 4pm sun and playing with a dog that stayed with us throughout our quick trek.
Please do not be inspired by Ranie’s decision to climb up that tree hanging by the cliff.
