bantay abot ilocos norte

we never saw this great scenic landscape of Ilocos' until the next day when we were heading back to the highway. the only time when we had the chance to see it by day time. it was comparable to Hawaii's mountainous islands.leaving Mairaira blue lagoon on that day seemed like there's something else this province is boasting. we had all our things packed and took a tricycle back to continue our coastal route to Burgos.we realized that what we thought was just a dull view, when we were traveling our way to Mairaira was a actually a wonder that we could have missed if we decided to go home by night time.the Bantay Abot rock formation was worth a stop, from the road, it was just like an ordinary small hill along the coast. good that some of our companions insisted to go down the coast to take a closer look.only from there did i realize that there's a hole on that small hilly-like land. one would appreciate the rock and earth layers formed from years of waves hammering this coast.a majestic view of the beach can be seen from both side including a part of the Patapat coastal road. thus, i highly recommend Ilocos Norte to the beach explorers. dong ho congratulates fellow Pinoy travel blogger and friend ironwulf for winning the Nuffnang Best Travel Blog held in Singapore over other Asian travel blogs.
