mairaira blue lagoon pagudpud ilocos

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.

A truly inviting and magnificent view. I wish that this will remain virgin, will not be exploited with those we know whom would be so interested. :)

pitch a tent - sounds like a great plan when visiting that place. i like its isolation and the peaceful surroundings.

Thanks for the heads up. Pagudpud is actually in my list of place to visit on my next trip back home. Now I know which place to go to for camping. Is it safe though? Cell coverage [just in case of emergencies, etc.], sari-sari stores nearby for supplies?

Great pictures...

I love the fact that there's still so much greenery on the hills surrounding the beach. I hope it stays that way.

witsandnuts said...

I agree, it would have been better to camp in there. =)

thanks to this post, i just recalled saud beach in pagudpud. that was the beach we enjoyed few years ago. it has white sands although courser than boracay's.

next time we get a chance to go up north, i'll try to remember mairaira.

Dong,
I have backread the 9 entries I have missed during my short hiatus... I miss Ilocos... I wanted to go back there in a summertime without storm and with blue skies and white clouds...

When we went there last June, we were not able to go into the Blue Lagoon...So this is how it looks... So pristine... I hope it reamins that way too....

It's a beautiful place. So natural!
I hope tourists who will be visiting here won't spoil the place. If it will be left the way it is, then much better than being developed and commercialized sacrificing its natural grandeur...
Excellent photos as always...

Everyone should go and see this place. It is so clean!

Love blue lagoon! It's really a piece of paradise. Unfortunately, it rained really hard 5mins after we arrived here, so we didn't get to enjoy the place that long. Well, I just hope I could visit Blue Lagoon again with blue skies and no rain. crossfingers
