Saud Beach, Pagudpud Ilocos Norte

Now I'm going to feature an eminent sought after beach in the Philippines, the Pagudpud Beach of Ilocos Norte. As a piece of my sweet jaunt Ilocandia trip I thought it would be dissatisfying if I missed to visit this beach so I cleared everything out and add this on my  must visit list.

Pagudpud is a fourth class town and coastal resort that lies in the northern Ilocos region consisting of 16 Barangays, it also consists of several beach lodges that offers quite a few water activities, wellness centers, dining spots and accommodation that boost employment opportunities for the locals. We stayed in Saud Beach Resort for couple of hours enough to have our body relaxed from the long 5 hour drive (from Vigan). I always enjoy staring at the calm turquoise water from a shaded sand like I can do it till hell freezes over, after a long week full of stress nothing beats the view of waving clear water while stirring a halo halo, do you agree? 

The Golden white sand of Pagudpud has taken me aback, I heard a lot of positive feedback admiring the Beach but I was not expecting that it was well maintained considering that it has  been commercialized way back, you know when beaches became well known and talked about often times its beauty slowly fades, pat on on the back to the group or everyone responsible in maintaining this chunk of blissful paradise.

So if you're looking for an adequate resort accommodation yet conducive to your budget, I should say Saud Beach is perfect for you. Experience the warm vibe and exceptional hospitality of the Ilocanos.

How to get There?

From Vigan we took a bus from Partas Terminal heading to Laoag then Laoag to Pagudpud (cutting trip). From Pagudpud we hired a tricyle and made a deal, 600 package/4pax visiting 600 package/4pax visiting Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, Bangui Windmill, Kaangrian Falls, Tanap Avis Falls, Saud beach, Bantay Bato, Kabigan Falls and Patapat bridge (I think I'm missing one destination) it was a superb deal meaning we only had to pay 600 (150 each) visiting all these attractions but regrettably due to limited time we had to cut down the trip and chose a few destinations, we opted to visit Pagudpud Beach/Saud Beach, Kabigan falls, Patapat Viaduct and Bantay Bato as these places are few minute drive away to each other.


If you're coming from Manila there are few buses direct to Pagudpud or alternatively take Laoag bus trip going to Pagudpud, however fare differs on your preferred bus operator. 
These are the bus lines operating a direct trip to Pagudpud: Maria De Leon,Florida Bus Lines,RCJ Bus line and Partas Bus.
