Blue Lagoon Pagudpud

When you have finished touring Burgos Lighthouse, Kapurpuran Rock Formation, Bangui Windmills, Kabigan Falls, Bantay Abot Cave, Patapat Viaduct and every spot in your bucket list of the northern coast of Ilocos Norte, it’s time to hit the beach. There are two famous spots where the beach lover in you will surely love – Saud Beach and the Blue Lagoon.

The picturesque Blue Lagoon or Maira-ira Cove is fast becoming a surfers’ haven

While Saud Beach offers a more laid back ambiance, Blue Lagoon or Maira-ira Cove is fast becoming a favorite for adventure loving souls wanting to be stoked. Thanks to its beautiful swells, Blue Lagoon is now a surfers’ haven in the north.

Newbies need not to worry for the waves are ideal for beginners who want to learn the sport. For P200 per hour, one can rent surf board and start riding the waves. Instructors (a.k.a. wave spotters and pushers) can also be hired for another P200 per hour, fun and enjoyment guaranteed. Kapuluan Vista Resort Pagudpud offers surf board rental and services of instructors.

      Pagudpud is best for surfing from June to November, with peak on August to October. I prefer San Juan and Baler for novice surfer 🙂

      May be not necessarily a good swimmer, but at least one must know how to float and swim.
