Saud Beach is the main attraction for those visiting the town of Pagudpud in the Ilocos Norte region of the Philippines. This pristine crescent of pure white sand is bordered by mangrove and coconut palm trees on one side and the crystalline waters of Saud Bay on the other. This seemingly paradisaical beach draws thousands of visitors each year.

Ilocos Norte, the northwestern-most province in the island of Luzon, has become synonymous with windmills and white beaches. Rightly so, we think, with these popular sights truly a breathtaking experience. But while tourists crowd all the usual spots, there are lots more to see in this rich and laid-back province. Check out these underrated spots in Ilocos Norte for a one-of-a-kind trip (and unique selfies!).

Crystal clear waters, powder white sand, and the lushest set of islands imaginable. A trip to the Philippines to see its many beaches is nothing short of spectacular. With over 7,107 islands to choose from, and which only 2000 of those are inhabited, finding a stunning beach to visit while in the Philippines is not hard to do. Boasting of turquoise blue waters, palm fringed islands, and sandy beaches, hopping from one tropical beach destination is one of the best things to do while in the Philippines. With my previous profession being a so-called professional beach bum, here are my top picks o ...
I tore up my usual schedule in favor of spontaneity. This is one of the most unplanned travel I did so far. Needless to say, I've been in a wonderland.
Tikling Island is located in Matnog, Sorsogon, a private island owned by a local. Only a caretaker, together with his family live there. It is very serene and pristine. You would want to steal that island once you set your foot on the powdery white sands of Tikling.
Our side-trips were Subic Beach in Calintaan Island where few resorts await tourists and the Juag Lagoon Fish Sanctuary, a man-made nest for various and beautiful fish.
We love hushed, charming faraway towns. Their rustic charm and the pristine natural vistas around them never fail to reinvigorate our bodies, minds, and souls. The townsfolk's way of life, practiced for generations and relatively uncontaminated by the complexities of city life, gives us a glimpse of rich tradition and simple grace. Their culture is a proof that simplicity and a relaxed pace of living can bring as much happiness as power and riches. One such place is the quiet coastal resort town of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, the northernmost settlement in the island of Luzon.
After a few hours ...
The first afternoon in Pagudpud was all about the warmth of the sun, sand, and waves. Why should it end there?
After the visit in Patapat Viaduct and soaking under the sun around the Timmantang Rock, it was time to go back to the accommodation in Saud to watch the sun set (and for me to take photos until twilight) from the nearby beach.
We reached the beach at a little past 6:00 pm and had enough time to observe around. The sun was already low on the horizon giving warm hue to the surrounding. Golden hour it was.
This part of the coast have less beach resorts and most of ...
