Pagudpud: Unspoiled Northern Escape

My chance to visit Pagudpud came in only in June 2008 courtesy of the family of my nephew Kenneth who hailed from there.

Located at the northernmost tip of Ilocos Norte, the trip takes between 10 to 12 hours from Manila and for me, that is too much to drive alone or be in a bus so I kind of waited for this chance.

My nephew Kenneth's mom, Juries, lived in Pagudpud before she married Steve and became residents of London. They arrived in May for family visit and has a long family coach that can accommodate one more person in. I was invited to join.

With a big Yes to the invitation, I found myself in the unspoiled scenic environment and distinct serenity of Pagudpud! It has white sand beaches, mountains, hills, waterfalls and valleys that made my visit truly fascinating!

Saud White Beach is the most popular attraction in Pagudpud, and we are so lucky that its owner is Juries ninang (god mother). She also used to work as a cashier at the resort during her teen years.

Saud Beach has a fine stretch of white sand and clear blue waters that allow a clear vision of the colorful reef.
