isolated yet so safe. hidden behind the the lush green coastal hills of Pagudpud in Ilocos Norte, Luzon island's northern tip.
the Eastern coast of Mairaira beach reveals an exotic experience of being in a beach. where the green still dominates the backdrop and a few nipa houses that seemed abandonded.it was night time when we arrived in this beach and as we were looking for a place to stay for the night, we seem to can't find a place where we can set our tents. so we decided to look for a homestay accommodation.our guide though was pointing out on a direction with just one light as seen from afar. we resisted as the area seemed too isolated. not knowing that the place that he was pointing at was the eastern coast of Mairaira.if we only knew that it was this area, we could have chosen pitching up a tent on this coast. if there's a reason why i should go back to this place, it would be to camp overnight in this coast.Mairaira beach is about 2hours away from the town of Laoag. take a bus that goes to Pagudpud and tell them to drop you at the Mairaira area where you can take a short tricycle ride with a great view of the Patapat coastal road going to this beach. this is just about 30minutes away from the more popular Saud beach of Pagudpud.
