Pong Travels: Discovering Nasugbu 🌴🌊

[17-18 December 2016]
Been wanting to have a Year-End Beach get away but another typhoon is in forecast at the initial choice of destination - Quezon. Aside from Quezon being on my bucket list and am dying to have that tick off of it, yeah, nature has different plans for me. Haha! Maybe next time. 👍

As we all know, Nasugbu is near Manila and we're on a tight budget as well. 
So, we chose Maryland Beach Resort despite the not so good reviews in Facebook. But if there's not so good reviews, there are some good ones too. We took the risk, phoned them and voila - we found ourselves on our way to Nasugbu. 

Maryland Beach Resort is now known  as Merry Beach Resort. 2-3 hours from Manila BUT because of the naughty traffic, nah, it became 5 hours. No sunset shot again. 😥

Facilities are simple - cottages, room and pool (4-6 feet deep). Some offered Island Hopping packages but we did not try. Staff are accommodating! Love 'em! Waves are big during the time we were there. Ang ganda! Personally, had the beach was maintained properly, panalo. Sand in Nasubgu is black, so do not expect a white one like the ones we have in Boracay or nearby Islands such as Fortune Island. There are nearby resorts like Bernabeach - it's just one stretch. 😊

How to get there: Ride a bus bound to Nasugbu from Pasay and ask to be dropped off to Nasugbu proper. 

SET BUDGET: 2K/pax (2 lang kami)
Pasay - Nasugbu: PHP155
Nasugbu - Maryland Beach Resort: PHP15/pax
Room: PHP1200, overnight non-ac
Towel: PHP100 for 2
TOTAL: 990/pax

The rest of the expenses is for food, but we did not spend on it as much too. PHP500 is more than enough. 
Coffee/Hot Chocolate: PHP5 (Vendo) 👌
Food: PHP80 - PHP120 (Sisig is good! 🍲)
Minute Burger's Bacon Cheeseburger (Buy 1, Take 1): PHP55
Water: PHP25/Liter
Jollibee: PHP100/head
Mang Inasal: PHP100/head

Swak sa Budget! 😀😁😂

Maryland is near the terminal so ayos! There are nearby fast-food chains too. So we bought Bacon Cheeseburger at Minute Burger and ate it for our lunch. We had Mang Inasal for brekky and we ate at Jollibee before heading home. We struggled to find a "local" resto and some souvenirs like magnets, so we had just pictures instead. Not bad at all. Take a peek!
