Roadtrip to Ilocos: Discover The Northern Tip Of Luzon

After the usual morning frolic in Saud Beach Cove and with much enthusiasm, my family organized an afternoon trip towards the northern tip of Luzon Island. The drive took us 12.5 kilometers from Evangeline Beach Resort to Barangay Balaoi, Pagudpud – crossroad to the much celebrated Malingay Cove and the Patapat National Park.

There is an emerging tourist attraction called Malingay Cove where a secluded beach cove known as the Blue Lagoon is located. The cove is a paradise of powdery white sand, invigorating South China Sea breezes, verdant mountains, interesting marine life, fresh seafood, and friendly locals. While Pagudpud has been heavily promoted as a tourist destination, Malingay Cove remains a quieter and more relaxing destination in Pagudpud compared to Saud Beach, far to the west, where the majority of resorts and tourists are concentrated.

Roadtrip to Ilocos: The Fun Continue In Saud Beach

Saud Beach is a 2-kilometer beach cove of pure sand bordered by the deep blue expanse of Bangui Bay and South China Sea. This picturesque beach is renowned for its crystal clear waters, fine white-cream sand and underwater sceneries of multi-colored corals and iridescent fish. It is an uncluttered beach with few commercial establishments and crowds that usually spoil the appeal of a quiet beach destination. It is a haven for swimmers, snorkeling enthusiasts, wind surfers, and fast becoming another surfers’ paradise in the Philippines.
