Bagasbas Beach, Daet, Camarines Norte

The first time I witnessed kitesurfing was in Dos Palmas, Palawan. Second time was in Baler, Aurora. And from then on I was awed by this extreme sport!

While in Naga City and CamSur Watersports Complex in Pili, Camarines Sur, foreigners have been talking about kite surfing in Bagasbas. and out of curiosity, I went to Bagasbas Beach..

There are 2 well-known tourist spots in Camarines Norte, Calaguas Island and Bagasbas Beach. 

Bagasbas Beach is 4 kilometers or 10 minutes away from Daet, Camarines Norte. From the town, go to the market and ride a tricycle to Bagasbas. The fare is P10.00/pax or P40.00 for the entire trip.

From Manila, ride a bus going to Daet in Cubao (preferably DLTB, near Superlines). The travel time is 8-9 hours depending on the traffic in San Pablo and Sariaya. Fare in aircon bus is around P400.00.

There are so many activities/adventures that you can do while you are in Bagasbas such as kitesurfing, surfing, paragliding and sunrise viewing. But the primary reason why foreigners go to this place is kitesurfing.

Kitesurfing or kiteboarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, and gymnastics into one extreme sport.

The wind and the waves are so strong that Bagasbas is best-suited for surfing and kitesurfing.

People frolic while they enjoy the early morning surge of waves in the beach.

  3. Hey guys,

    I moved to the UK when I was 12, originally from Naga City. And I picked up kitesurfing here and travelled to a few countries to kitesurf.

    I'm planning on visiting in Apr-May (after 12 years!) for 3 weeks and I also wanna go kitesurfing too. It would be awesome to kitesuf in my old hometown.

    Any recommendations? And which months are best for wind?
