Pagudpud: Beauty Invasion in ILOCOS

I've never known my hometown to be this beautiful and inviting. Until we chanced to celebrate our family reunion last 2008 in Ilocos Norte. Since then I've been helping out friends on how to visit the place. Or if not, their travel buddy.

Here are the list of places to visit when in Ilocos arranged according to the farthest from the North.

PAGUDPUD, ILOCOS NORTE
There are 3 must see places in Pagudpud.
Patapat Viaduct / Patapat Bridge
This is a beautiful bridge that is zigzag in shape and attached to the mountain constructed to prevent accidents on the area. The bridge connects the tip of Ilocos Norte to Cagayan Valley Region.

Blue Lagoon Beach
A hidden beach that is, for me, better than Saud Beach. The water is more calm and clean.Hannah Beach Resort is the common place to stay here.

Kabiga Falls
Kabiga Falls is a thirty (30) minute trek away from the national highway. You will be accompanied by tourist guide that waits on the station near the highway. You have to pay Php150 for the tour guide plus Php10 per head for the visit. There are about 70 tourist guide that goes back and forth for three times during April, their peak month.

Saud Beach by edcadena
Equally beautiful beach as that of Blue Lagoon is Saud Beach. Saud Beach is more famous because the views is more appealing compared to Blue Lagoon. There are about 5 resorts or more that you could stay and chose from.

BANGUI, ILOCOS NORTE

Bangui Windmills
This amuses me because the structure is huge in size and in number. More details of Bangui windmill.

BURGOS, ILOCOS NORTE

Kapurpurawan Rocks from candymag.com
Another worth a visit is Kapurpurawan Rocks. The rock formation feel is like you have travelled to another country.

Cape Bojeador Lighthouse
This lighthouse was built in 1892 but still functions and welcomes ships that enter the Philippines in the North. Now serves as a historical landmark and a cultural treasure.

PAOAY, ILOCOS NORTE

San Agustin Church / Paoay Church
We have four baroque churches that have been inscribed to UNESCO World Heritage List. Two (2) of them are from Ilocos, Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion in Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur and San Agustin Church in Paoay, Ilocos Norte.
