Pagudpud Beach -the long stretch in Laoag Ilocos Norte

No it does not have fire dancers at night. Pagudpud Beach, is not as touristy as Boracay but lets not conclude it that way. The beach stretches about 2 kilometers. Just the right kind of beach for people who want to be away from tall buildings, work, pollution, and it hurts me to say this... but you are not gonna get that Starbucks coffee for a while. The lodging facilities along the coast, don't seem to abrupt the real panorama of the beach.

The other half of the beach has most of the accommodations or lodging facilities.

The other half (northern part) what I can describe as immaculate seems to be the parking area for fishing boats and it is where most of the locals are residing.

I noticed that the boats are painted uniformly in blue, just like taxis. I wanted to walk starting from the south to the tip of the coast but I didn't make it because I only covered half of it  in 30 minutes. I'm thinking that one person can cover the whole stretch in one hour, approximately. 

Let me remind you that Pagudpud beach is facing the South China Sea. During our visit the waves were thick , I saw a sting ray about 5 meters from the shore and I was very careful with the slopes.

How to Get to Pagudpud

From Laoag City it is 2 hours away. Commuter buses depart from Laoag to Pagudpud every 30 minutes, sometimes takes up to an hour depending how fast the bus fills up. The fare was P60.

ATM or Automated Teller Machine in Pagudpud

Nope they don't have it in Pagudpud, ATMs can be accessed in Laoag City. Make sure to bring cash. Otherwise, or if you really need access to ATM you will have to go to Laoag City and take the same transport as described above.

If you are planning to the only a day trip in Pagudpud and want to stay or sleep in Laoag City you may consider Isabelle Suites or Hotel Tiffany
