Travel Thursday on Empty Streets: Pagudpud

Posted 6:10 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels:
Pagudpud is my travel special today and this is a very cool place to visit during the busy Holy Week season that is coming up this March. A well preserved beach without the commercialism but with plenty for fun in the sand and surf.

Pagudpud is a coastal resort town on the northernmost tip of Luzon in the Philippines. It is bounded to the south by the town of Bangui and to the east by the Cordillera Mountain Range, the town of Adams and the province of Cagayan. The South China Sea lies to the west and north. The town rolls over mountains, hills, valleys and flat coastal land. It lies 45 miles north of Laoag City, the provincial capital, and about 350 miles north of Manila.

According to the 2000 census, Pagudpud has a population of 19,315 people. They reside in 3,804 homes that are spread across 83 square miles. Most make their living through farming, fishing and subsistence retailing. Tourism is a growing part of the economy.

Pagudpud was made a municipality on February 5, 1954. Unlike Laoag City, the province's only autonomous city, Pagudpud derives its authority from the provincial government. It had previously been a part of the neighboring town of Bangui.

Here are a list of things that you could do when you go and visit Pagudpud

1. Visit Pagudpud Viaduct
The Pagudpud viaduct is a scenic view and it looks at its best when there is no storm.

2. Have a picnic at Aqua Grande
The idea of the picnic thing is optional though. You could just stop by there and take pictures.

3. Stop by Paraiso ni Anton
Beside the grotto is a stream nearby that is connected to Kaibigan Falls.


4. Go to Blue Lagoon and swim!
The Blue Lagoon is not yet commercialized though the view of the clear blue water is very soothing and relaxing.
