Under the Spell of Bayog Beach’s Blue Water and Dark Rocks

Ilocos Norte is known for its rich culture, wind farms, and beautiful, pristine beaches. And when you say beaches, they are of different characteristics, free and easily accessible. Of the miles and miles of continuous Western Philippine Sea beaches within Ilocos Norte, Bayog beach is yet to hit the eyes of beach-lovers.

Located in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, the beach along the stretch of Bayog community is easily accessible to travelers. It is just along the national highway in the 5th class municipality of Burgos. The town was initially known as Nagparitan, meaning, to prohibit, before it was fused to Bangui then back to an independent municipality.

The beach along Bayog is not your common sandy seaside. Interestingly, the beach is covered with dark rough stones with the turquoise water on the background. When I went to Pagudpud, I saw this stretch of beach and kept in mind to drop by when I go home.



What caught my attention is the beautiful contrast of the turquiose water and the dark stones on the beach. It looks so unique from the usual sea-and-sand beaches. Initially, I thought that swimming might not be a good idea as the beach is rocky. However, I saw some kids and adults enjoying on one area.

Sharp and rugged stones cover majority of the beach. This makes swimming high risk. Thus, make sure that you only wade after getting information from the locals.

The beach is easily accessible from the main road.

In conclusion, this stretch of beach has a potential of getting more footfalls from tourists tired from long-hour ride. While it is free, you might as well want to have a look.
