What to Do at the Campsite?
Have a work-life balance with nothing else to worry about at the metropolis. Here at Sadagat Beach Camp, you may enjoy life without worrying that much about your workload (just whenever necessary). You have the following options and perks when you choose to camp here:
Pitch Your Tent
Whether you prefer a car camp, glamp, or regular camp, you will always be one with nature at Sadagat. Tents are available from your simple to your luxurious accommodation by the beach. Opt for one that meets your clamor for an adventure outdoors.
Park Your Car and Camp
Are you finding a spot to park and pitch your canopy or tent with your gear? Drive your way to Kawit and enjoy your beach getaway. You will have a great time with your family and friends.
Glamp at the Countryside
Should you opt to be a bit luxurious, you can rent their glamping tents with your dear ones. Enjoy your beach stay with your exclusive chairs, tables, bed, and other amenities that come with it.
Hang Your Hammocks
Camp light with your hammock! There are coconut trees along the shore to hang your hammock and be lulled by the sea waves rushing through the coastline. Bask a day or night in a hammock with the deafening harmony of nature cuddling you to sleep.
Set-up a Picnic with Your Friends and Loved Ones
Should you prefer a few hours under the sun or the shade of trees, enjoy their white, fine sandy beach with your family and friends for a day. Cottages, tables, and chairs are available to make your stay comfy.
Bring hammocks with you if you feel like embracing the ocean breeze. Seize the ambiance that only nature brings. Promise! Here, relaxation at its finest is upfront for you.
Have a Lazy Day at the Beach
The stretch of white, sandy beach is perfect for your mats and umbrellas. Lay them out and enjoy your beach day under the sun. This is the perfect time to talk about anything and everything.
Get that Work-Life Balance
Workstation is not and should not always confine to a four-walled space. The working environment is subjective. If you are more productive when with nature, you can turn this spot into a workspace.
The campsite has its Wi-Fi free of use for its campers. If using a public net connection is a risk, you can always use your private network access. A stable Internet connection is not a problem here. You still have the option to disconnect from the modern world or stay connected but on a laid-back spree. It’s all up to you.
No worries about getting out of power as they have charging stations to recharge your gadgets and continue your work.
Side Tip: A weekday stay is likely if you’re looking for a “QUIET” time.
Satisfy Your Cravings
Eat and drink your favorite Filipino camp food way out at their Layag Bar, Kasku Mart, and other food hubs. Choose from the servings of barbecue, grilled fish, kinilaw, tinola, empanada, budbud, fried chicken, and more. You may also pre-order any dish if you wish to eat a particular food.
Also, you can bring whatever food or drinks you want as a corkage fee is not implemented here.
Order and dine at your own pace with the ambiance of nature as your backdrop.
Pose for Your Instagrammable Entries
If you are looking for new sites for your Instagram timeline, Sadagat is an excellent option. You will have a few spots for your unlimited photo-ops. Get yourself ready with your fashionable outfits and accessories.
Get that countryside feels by the serene beach alone, with someone special, or with your family and friends. Sadagat Beach Camp will take care of your chill getaway.
Camp with Your Furry Friend/s
