CamSur Watersports Complex | Eat, Play, Love Weekend
Camarines Sur is a wonderland for sports junkies, island hoppers, religious pilgrims & food trippers. But there’s one place that gathers all of them together — the CamSur Watersports Complex in Pili, Camarines Sur.
I used to live in CamSur on a work assignment for a couple of years. But I have to admit that I didn’t really get the chance to enjoy all the amenities of CamSur Watersports Complex because I would only go there mostly for events [read: working].
After more than a decade of corporate life, I was back in Camsur on a personal holiday. Albeit short but sweet—and I finally got to experience what life is like inside CWC on a weekend of nothing but eat, play & love.
Camsur Watersports Complex: One Venue, Tons of Fun
This 6-hectare complex houses the Provincial Capitol. But just quite beyond the administrative offices begin an expansive area dedicated to fun adventures, dining & party hotspots and lovely cabin accommodations.
EAT & Party Like There’s No Tomorrow
Restaurants, bars & cafes are my zen zones. Gladly, they have it here & they do it really good.
Set in a breezy ambience by the wakepark & the pool, their restaurant offers quite a lot from local coco & chili heavy dishes to western flare. But as night falls, everything changes into something sultry.
Partyphiles from Naga & other nearby towns flock to Zeach Bar, one of the IT places to be seen, be wild & be booze-loaded. Whether you come on weekday or on a weekend, there’s always something happening here everynight.
Their al-fresco set-up is fantastic because it gives you lots of that much-needed rural air. But I kinda like their speak-easy spot called Happy Ending Bar more because it’s charming, sexy & sophisticated. They say preferences like this come with age—-I say, it comes with taste.
PLAY Hard & Wild
CamSur Watersports Complex is a favorite venue for national & international wakeboarding competitions. It boasts of its up-to-standards cable park where riders from all over the world live their lives gliding by a cable against the beautiful backdrop of Mt. Isarog.
I loved watching how the pro riders make it look all so easy—chasing speed, balancing on suspended cables, jumping & flipping on tricky courses. Their awesome maneuvers left me gawking. I don’t skate. I can’t even do a simple cartwheel. And now, this!
But they have a small cable park for beginners where newbies & curious tourists like me can try. I did & it was really fun. Although I looked like a pig tucked on a board (thank God no one took a photo of me), it was nonetheless an exciting experience.
Another first for me at 42 was to go wild on their floating island. It was a great day to feel so carefree—tumbling, jumping & falling on the water. Although this is not really my kind of fun but it made me feel young & happy at least for a weekend.
LOVE & Be Lazy
The loveliest part of my weekend getaway in CamSur Watersports Complex was the moment I spent just being lazy. I actually spent more time in my cabin than staying outdoors.
It was really so hard to get up from a bed that is fitted with good mattress & fluffy pillows. The entire cabin smelled of natural pinewood too—crisp, refreshing & calming. Each room comes with a daybed & a lovely patio perfect for snuggles or reading a book over a cup of coffee.
With this kind of set-up, who can’t be lazy anyway?
I truly had a wonderful weekend at Camsur Watersports Complex. It’s a destination that rolls in everything you could ask for in a vacation. It gives you the venue to play, dine in style & party hard or you can just hide away, sleep all day & recollect your energies.
