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 .
Daet 1st Rizal Monument
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 .
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 .
Daetenos , Daets locals
The peolpe here are so warm , welcoming and laid back . Throughout the Philippines Daetenos are liked and respected .
They are very proud of daet and its hieratage of having the first Rizal monument . And of other historical places of interest .
They have the pleasures of nature all around with surf beaches , rivers , country side , National Parks and unspoilt islands just a short boat ride away .
Daet’s locals are family orrientaded and enjoy the simple things in life but do love to party . Young and old and also at the same time together !
We look forward to seeing you here and as Daetenos would say “Mabuhay” welcome to Daet .
