Blue Lagoon

Bangui, Philippines

I can not think of the perfect words to describe this very beautiful place. If you have been to Ilocos Norte in the Philippines before, then you probably know what I am talking about. It is this very enchanting place that drew me closer to the Philippines. It is in the Blue Lagoon that I felt very peaceful.

I have been here a couple of times already and I can say that I am glad to come back. The Blue Lagoon is located in Pagudpud. The road trip going to the beach alone was already enough excitement for me. The long and winding bridge that peeks to the sea is just very laid back. The trees and houses best describe the province life in the country. The best part for me is the Blue Lagoon. This beach is an ideal family vacation spot. From the cottages, you can see the crystal blue waters glitter under the sun. The sand is white and fine. My favorite part is watching the sunset with all solemnity.

Bangui Windmills

Bangui, Philippines

If you visit Ilocos Norte, it is a must to see the Bangui Windmills which is located in Bangui. These windmills are actually a project called the NorthWind Bangui Bay Project which is created by the NorthWind Development Corporation.

The main reason this project was created was to be able to renew energy sources and help reduce the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. This project is the first Wind Farm project in the Philippines which consists of wind turbines facing the South China Sea. These wind turbines are also the largest in southeast Asia. The project produces around 74,482 Mwh of electricity every year. The expected life of the wind turbines is 21 years. This place is accessible through Laoag – Cagayan route towards Burgos. The directional marker on the left side of the road leads to a dirt road heading to Bangui Bay. Be ready for another educational and fun tour in Ilocos Norte.
