Explore historical and natural attractions of Ilocos Norte’s Pagudpud on this tour. You will visit beaches, local architectural feats, and religious sites situated at the northern tip of the country. This package comes with private van transfers between attractions and also pick-up and drop-off at your accommodation in Laoag. A tour guide, entrance fees, water, and a sanitary kit are also included.
Your full-day tour starts off at Baccara Ruins, the belfry of the San Andres Apostol Parish Church. This leaning bell tower was made in 1828, however, due to an earthquake during the 1980s, its dome was toppled off.
The next attraction is a geological site off the coast of Ilocos Norte. Kapurpurawan rock formation on Bangui Bay can be accessed by hiking. After that, you’ll get to see the Spanish Colonial Cape Bojeador Lighthouse. It’s situated on Vigia de Nagpartian Hill and is a declared National Historic Landmark and National Cultural Treasure.
The next stop also involves tall structures, the Bangui Windmills. The wind farm has twenty 70m-tall wind turbines lining the Bangui Bay shoreline. You will then go to Saud Beach, a quiet location that boasts white sands and clear waters. It’s at the other end of Bangui Bay, so you can get a good view of the neatly lined Bangui Windmills. Saud Beach has shallow waters and gentler waves compared to other beaches in Pagudpud.
The next stop is Patapat Viaduct, one of the longest bridges in the country. This 1,300m-long bridge gently follows the curves of the mountains, resulting in an aesthetically-pleasing architectural structure. At the end of the bridge is the next destination, Agua Grande. This picnic park is on Pasaleng Bay and features a running stream with clear water coming from the mountains.
Finally, the last stop on the tour is Paraiso ni Anton, which translates to Anton’s Paradise. It has a stony flight of stairs that leads to a shrine, which is right beside a cascading spring.
