TRAVELS: Blue Lagoon | Agua Grande, Ilocos Norte

Agua Grande (known as dakkel a danum in Ilokano) is located at the edge of the Patapat Viaduct in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. We were on the cliff when we took this picture. Agua Grande is also a river park/ resort that accommodate guests. Much to my surprise, this is a mini hydro electric power plant built by Marcos (ex-Philippine President) to supply electricity to the residents of Pagudpud. You can see from the picture that the current produced by the water is strong and thus, it can be a source of hydro electric power.

 Blue lagoon is a half-moon shaped bay in Pagudpud. More pictures and details after this!

Agua Grande Resort with a strong current!

Blue Lagoon, Pagudpud is what they've known as " The Boracay of the North". With its whitesand, clear blue water and panoramic view, this can be a resemblance of the Boracay in Aklan. The current of the water during our visit was very strong which I really enjoyed while swimming (if you love challenge). There are several  resorts situated near the Blue Lagoon so you can enjoy the place more. If you're resort is afar from this lagoon, you will only pay 20 pesos as entrance, never mind paying them as long as they maintain the cleanliness of the place.

See the waves? This waves are perfect for surfing..

Scenic view..Breath-Taking view at the top of the Blue Lagoon.

When we were in Ilocos, our resort was situated at Saud Beach which is far from this blue lagoon. So as an advice to those who wants to visit Ilocos, better have your resort near the Blue Lagoon since this is by far better than Saud beach (according to what we have experienced).

Come and Visit Blue Lagoon and Agua Grande, Ilocos Norte! Its more fun in the Philippines!

HOW TO GET TO Blue Lagoon and Agua Grande, Ilocos Norte?

 Well as for us, we technically had a tour guide from Ilocos, who you can also contact when you want to take a visit in Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. We were like 8 in a group and all in all, we paid Php10,000 - Php 12,000(Philippine Peso)(Forgot the exact price) for 2 days tour around Ilocos. If you want his contact details, Kuya Marlon please drop an email or leave a comment below..

 We rode Florida Bus (Espanya) going to Ilocos. It takes us about 6-8 hours..But definitely, all was worth it.
