Pagudpud is an enormous place to visit if you're looking for the comparatively perfect charms of the Philippines. It is a wide and beautiful town on the northwest tip of Ilocos Norte, Luzon, 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.
Considered as the largest island in the Philippines, the hills and mountains are luxuriant, the valleys productive. It lies 45 miles north of Laoag City, the provincial capital, and about 350 miles north of Manila. The beach, which is two hours north of Laoag City, has powder-white sand, but it's hard to tell which is bluer: the sky or the sea. I'd give it to the water as the sky reveals its best kept secret to the delight of Pagudpud's visitors- how it hides the sun for the meantime, before the moon says hello. Enjoy the sunset of Pagudpud.
