Pagudpud is a group of beaches in the northern province of Ilocos in the Philippines. It earned its monicker as the “Boracay of the North” with its blue waters and white sand beaches lined with coconut trees. It is not as crowded and developed as Boracay but these only add to its charm.
There are few watersports facilities here compared to Boracay and Laiya, which lends to its laid-back character. If you’d like to make more out the trip, you can head off to the Cape Bojeador lighthouse and the Windmills of Bangui Bay.
