Daet info is for Daeteños , day trippers and tourists that want to find information about Daet and Bagasbas Beach .

And what the Capitol of Camarines Norte has to offer . More specific information can be found in the relevant categories to the left .

Here i will try to give those new to Daet a general insight . As to why the Daeteños and visitors love the place so much and why so many other Filipinos love to come and visit .

We do have a steady stream of foreign tourists of all Nationalities throughout the year . The main reasons for visiting are the beach and to visit family and friends .

Many travel from Manila regularly for weekends to escape the big city smoke and to enjoy the slower more relaxed way of life .

Bagasbas Beach

The main attraction here is the beach called Bagasbas Beach . Which is Bicol Provinces best known Surfing + Kitesurfing spot .

There are annual big cash prize Competitions that attract International and National competitors .

The sandy beach and prominade is huge and there is more than enough room for every one to enjoy what ever activity they choose .

A lot of changes have gone on here for the good of Bagasbas and the people that visit .

Every year more improvements are made like the Life Guard Tower last year and a new up market restaurant this year .

Over half of the first time visitors return again and again . Although you can generally see a couple of JOE’S (White People) .

I just hope it never gets spiolt by mass tourism that would be a shame for Bagasbas and all.

Traveling From Manila To Daet

Daet is on the main Philippine Island of Luzon in the Bicol Region in the Province of Camarines Norte .

Well basically  its 7 hours drive south from the capital city Manila . Or a 1 hour flight to Naga then 2 hours drive .

There is an airport here but sadly at this time its not being used . Acomadation is in the low to zero price range , from beach huts to hotels .

My suggestion is to start at one of the bigger hotels for a couple of nights and then decide from there .

Even the most expensive is less than $30 and all are close to the beach and city .

You dont need to worry about getting around as there is lots of different cheap modes of transport .

As for eating and drinking , well its dead cheap and delicious .

Do not worry you can still get your burgers and pizza , some even deliver so come and enjoy!!

Daet’s Famous Pinyasan Festival

All year round the city and streets and the beach are full with people celebrating , both day and night .

They are well catered for with all the stalls and street vendors selling simple cheap foods and drinks . Some of these events go on for the week .

Then each Barangay has the fiestas , which is great to bring together the neighbourhood communities .

Daet is well known for its Pinyasan Formosa Festival . Named after the delicious sweet Formosa Pineapple being the most celebrated .

This one lasts a week with parades , street stalls and nightly entertainment . For such a small place there is always something going on .
