Bangui Windmills

Bangui Windmills in Ilocos

The Bangui Windmills, also known as the Bangui Wind Farm, is a popular wind farm in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. Its installation consists of 20 units of 70-meter high Vestas V82 1.65 MW wind turbines, stretching along a 9-kilometer shoreline of Bangui Bay, facing the South China Sea. It stands as a prominent symbol of sustainability, converting wind into electric energy, and was initiated with a $48 million aid grant from the Danish government in 1998.

This wind farm has become a popular tourist spot in Ilocos Norte, offering stunning photo opportunities with its turbines against the backdrop of a beautiful beach. Although the beach is not ideal for swimming, it is a must-visit destination, especially when you are heading to Pagudpud Beach. The windmills are easily visible from the highways. 

The Bangui Windmills are a testament to renewable energy efforts and a highlight of the region's landscape.

After passing the Burgos Wind Farm, turn left for a few meters. Travel straight ahead until you enter Estress Resort, then turn right to arrive at the destination.

From Pagudpud or nearby towns, you can hire a tricycle or jeepney to take you directly to the Bangui Windmills.
