White Beaches and Clear Waters of Pagudpud

Pagudpud is located in a coastal town at the northwestern tip of Luzon. Its beaches have become one of the hottest white sand beaches in the country. In fact, tourists have been dubbing it as the “Boracay of the North”. However, it offers more than meets the eye.

When you want to get a rebreather away from the busy city life, lying in one of the Pagudpud beaches might be the answer. Pagudpud beaches are hidden gems up north in the country. It is a PARADISE! The sand is fine and white. The water is calm and crystal clear. And the water is shallow. These factors make it a very family friendly place. P.S., the locals are very nice.

There are a lot of activities in Pagudpud beaches. Aside from lazing under the sun and swimming in its pristine waters, the longest zipline over water is found in one of them. Some theme parks are also constructed in couple of beaches. Snorkeling in its calm waters is also one of the best options. Fresh fruits and seafoods are also abundant along nearby roads.

Lastly, I wouldn’t dare compare it to Boracay. Pagudpud beaches maybe covered with white sand but its atmosphere is totally different. It is not highly commercialized and definitely not jam-packed with tourists. On the other hand, do not expect a five-star hotel accommodation.

The Blue Lagoon is one of the heavily populated white sand beaches in Pagudpud.


Over the shallow, pristine, clear, blue waters of Blue Lagoon is the longest zipline over water in the world! I tried it and it was uh-may-zing!!!

The wind turbines in in Bangui Bay are visible to the naked eye in Saud Beach.

They say that Pagudpud beaches have that ‘boracay’ feel. I say ‘NO’. It is more than just white sand beaches and crystal clear water. Well, aside from the fact that it is less crowded.

Pagudpud Beaches are very friendly to the family as it is calm and shallow.

In conclusion, Pagudpud beaches deserve to be at the top of your list when you want to “de-city-fy” and de-stress. It is one of the best place to get your family for a wholesome and quiet vacation.
