Camsur Water Sports Complex is one of the top tourist destinations in the Bicol region and probably one of the most popular in the country.
This 6-hectare complex is the first world-class watersports complex in the Philippines and in Asia.
Our family spent our Holy Week there last year, and I could say that it was the most relaxing respite we ever had. We’re not even watersports enthusiasts, so why did we go there? I say there’s a whole lot of things that this place has to offer even if you don’t intend to do wakeboarding, kneeboarding, waterskiing, or wakeskating. We didn’t do any of that. We were as boring as that, haha! But we enjoyed the tranquility of the place, which was the main reason why we went there. Afterall, it was Holy Week.
The great side is that while the other guests flocked to the dining places and the wakeboarding area, we had the swimming pool all to ourselves!

Their room rates are surprisingly low for the kind of comfort and ambiance you’re getting. Prices range from P1,200-P4,950 for two persons. Check out their website cwcwake.com for more information.
How to get there from Manila:
1. Bus – Araneta Bus Station, Cubao (P700). Since it was Holy Week, there weren’t enough buses to accommodate all commuters. We ended up making friends with other stranded passengers so we could hire a van at P1,000 each. Travel time: 8 hours
2. Plane – The fastest and easiest way to get to Camsur, but not the cheapest. Check out available flights online and see rates.
