Ilocos Norte, Philippines

Situated on the northwest corner of Luzon, Ilocos Norte is a vacation hotspot because of its impressive shoreline and marvelous terrains. Both the old and new clash and blend in this progressive province as historic structures proudly stand among the developed areas. Ilocos Norte is also famous for being the home province of Ferdinand Marcos, the longest-serving president of the Philippines.

Visitors to Ilocos Norte and drawn to the municipality of Pagudpod because of its dazzling white sand and shimmering blue waters. The beaches in the town are the perfect destinations for those who want to relax or try fun activities under the sun. Swimming, boating, island hopping, diving, or lounging by the sea are just some of the nice things to do around the shores.

But a discussion about Ilocos Norte won't be complete without its famed windmills. The iconic and huge wind turbines in Bangui Wind Farm are the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. They are powered by the strong winds coming from the West Philippine Sea. Aside from being one of the most unique tourist spots in the country, it is also an important source of power for the whole Ilocos Region.

The beautiful Paoay Church or Saint Augustine Church is perhaps the most-visited religious site in the province. Built in 1710, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and declared as a National Cultural Treasure by the government. It attracts pilgrims all over the country and remains one of the most important creations of Philippine Baroque architecture.

By Air

By Land

Driving to Ilocos Norte cuts the 10 to 12-hour trip to nine hours if you take the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway.
