UPDATED FAQ’s on Bagasbas Beach

How do we get there? Which is better, to take a public transporation or take our own cars?

Frankly, we feel it’s too long for a drive and we’d rather sit back and relax. Is there a public transpo that we can take from Manila? If so, where and how much would this cost? Other suggestions for transportation?

The best way to Daet, Camarines Norte is by bus.

I always take Superlines, with the terminal at Cubao along EDSA, southbound between Times and Aurora Boulevard. The trip is 6 hours minimum, but the bus ride of Superlines has A LOT OF STOPS. The buses aren’t new, but the fare is cheaper (P500 aircon) than the posh Philtranco, with terminals in Pasay and Cubao newer buses with the highest fares at P750 (Gold Service, check out the toilet facilities on board the bus)

For Superlines, there are only 2 trips 9:00pm and 9:30pm. Both trips reach Daet at around 6am (this is best for the event, so you get to check in and reg early on Day 1). TRAVEL TIP: reserve and purchase seats a day before or in the morning of your trip to avoid running out of seats.

Call Philtranco for their scheds for more details. They leave at 9pm as well, and don’t stop much, thus arriving in Daet at 4am.

PHILTRANCO – cubao (02)722-7567, pasay (02) 851-5420,daet (054)721-4350
SUPERLINES – daet (054) 571-2225, cubao(02)414-3319

When you get to Daet, tell the tricycle drivers to take you to Bagasbas Beach. That should be P50 for the trike, special trip, you can load the trike up to 3 pax

If you want to drive, prepare for a 370km road trip.

> print out the map from Google map
> Compute your gas. the crucial gas station is in Gumaca, Quezon before the zig zag roads
> I strongly suggest a diving buddy, or 3 of you to split the drive
