Ilocos Norte

November 19, 2014

A quick weekend getaway to the northern part of Luzon. I recommend for you to visit the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation for some picture taking and then drive up to Pagudpud for some fun surfing.

Though there are many other places that you can go to for Touristy photos,  don’t expect much. The light house was just okay, it is now under construction as they are turning it into some sort of a museum I suppose and the windmills, well… if you’re Dutch, you can probably skip that : ) Kidding aside, it is actually the largest wind farm in Asia & it powers 40% of Ilocos Norte. Truly something to be proud of as a Filipino.

The Kapurpurawan Rock Formation on the other hand is very interesting and if you are a beach person, Pagudpud is a nice place to visit. We checked out Kapuluan Vista and rented some boards. A surfboard rental there is Php 200/ hour and if you need an instructor, it’s Php 400/ hour.

The whole province is actually vast. You will need to rent a car or go around by Bus or Jeepneys. We rented a van from Rose Gomez (you may message her at +63929 6217125) which I found online and it was a pleasant experience.

All in all, it was a great weekend. We were not able to go to the Sand Dunes for some ATV adventure but if you are into that, then check out the sand dunes in La Paz.
