Situated on the northwest corner of Luzon, Ilocos Norte is a vacation hotspot because of its impressive shoreline and marvelous terrains. Both the old and new clash and blend in this progressive province as historic structures proudly stand among the developed areas. Ilocos Norte is also famous for being the home province of Ferdinand Marcos, the longest-serving president of the Philippines.

Visitors to Ilocos Norte and drawn to the municipality of Pagudpod because of its dazzling white sand and shimmering blue waters. The beaches in the town are the perfect destinations for those who want to relax or try fun activities under the sun. Swimming, boating, island hopping, diving, or lounging by the sea are just some of the nice things to do around the shores.

But a discussion about Ilocos Norte won't be complete without its famed windmills. The iconic and huge wind turbines in Bangui Wind Farm are the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. They are powered by the strong winds coming from the West Philippine Sea. Aside from being one of the most unique tourist spots in the country, it is also an important source of power for the whole Ilocos Region.

The beautiful Paoay Church or Saint Augustine Church is perhaps the most-visited religious site in the province. Built in 1710, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and declared as a National Cultural Treasure by the government. It attracts pilgrims all over the country and remains one of the most important creations of Philippine Baroque architecture.



By Air
Air travel is the quickest and most efficient way of getting to Ilocos Norte, but it is also the costliest. Cebu Pacific Air and Philippine Airlines offer one-hour flights from Manila Domestic Airport to Laoag Airport.


By Land
Traveling by bus is longer but more economical. The trip takes about 10 to 12 hours via bus lines like Florida and Partas, so it's best to pick a comfortable seat and bring essentials like food, water, and a travel pillow for the long haul.
 
Driving to Ilocos Norte cuts the 10 to 12-hour trip to nine hours if you take the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway.
 


How to Get Around
By Jeep
The jeepney is the cheapest mode of transportation and is highly recommended if you want to commute like a local in Ilocos Norte.
 
By Tricycle
For tourists, tricycles are the most popular means of getting around, especially when trying to get to the remote areas.


What to See
Ilocos Norte is full of wondrous sights that will excite and captivate all kinds of travelers. Whether you are a history buff, a beach bum, or a foodie, you are sure to find what you are looking for during your trip.
 
Landmarks
The Hispanic churches in Ilocos Norte should definitely be included in your itinerary. Both the St. Augustine's Church in Paoay and the St. William Cathedral in Laoag exhibit magnificent architectures aside from being popular pilgrimage sites. The Paoay Church was constructed in the earthquake baroque style of architecture. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the four Baroque Churches in the Philippines. Meanwhile, St. William Cathedral is also majestic, having been built in 1612 by the Augustinians. A unique feature of the church is its separate bell tower known as the Sinking Bell Tower, which slowly sinks into the ground as the years pass.

Natural Attractions
The beaches of Ilocos Norte are some of the Philippines' best. In the coastal town of Pagudpud, you'll find Saud Beach, which is often referred to as the "Boracay of the North" because of its white sand shores. The Blue Lagoon is another mesmerizing white sand beach with azure waters perfect for taking a dip.

Kabigan Falls is also located in Pagudpud. Go on a trek to this majestic waterfall and reward yourself with a soothing swim in its cool waters. While you're in town, make sure to see the Bantay Abot Cave as well. Although it is called a cave, it is actually just a rock with a hole. Nevertheless, it is a great spot for pictures and gives a marvelous viewpoint of the sea.

Meanwhile, the town of Burgos' most prominent tourist attraction is the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. This giant white rock was formed millions of years ago. Its name was derived from the word puraw, which means "white" in Ilocano.
 
Man-Made Attractions
The iconic 70-meter windmills at Bangui Wind Farm are must-see attractions when in town. The wind farm is the first in Southeast Asia and has been an important source of energy in the province.
 
Meanwhile, the Patapat Viaduct is the place to be if you want to enjoy a marvelous view of the coast. It is a popular site for photo ops and sightseeing.
 
If you would like to experience the more adventurous side of Ilocos Norte, then sandboarding at the La Paz Sand Dunes is definitely a must. You can also explore this desert safari using ATVs. Hannah's Beach Resort in Pagudpud is another place to get your adrenaline fix. It boasts many attractions like different rides and watersports but their zip-line is one of the highlights. It is said to be the longest overwater zip-line in the world.
 
There are multiple historical attractions in Ilocos Norte if you want to go on a heritage tour. One of them is the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse in the town of Burgos. This lighthouse, which was constructed during the Spanish era, is declared a National Cultural Treasure in 2004. It is visited for its eerily marvelous structure. Aside from this, you can visit the numerous museums dedicated to the Marcoses in Ilocos Norte. There's the Malacañang of the North in Paoay, a former holiday residence of the Marcos family. In addition, the Marcos Museum in Batac has many memorabilia on display. Connected to the museum is the mausoleum of the late President Ferdinand Marcos where you can see his preserved body encased in a glass coffin.
 
Events and Festivals
There are many festivals in the province of Ilocos Norte. One of the most popular is Laoag City's Pamulinawen Festival which is held every February in honor of the city's patron saint, St. William the Hermit. It features grand parades, street dances, and food and trade expos.
 
Another is the Guling-Guling Festival in Paoay, which is held annually before Ash Wednesday. This festival was started by Spanish friars during the colonial period as a means of interacting with parishioners. Residents engage in all sorts of fun activities such as dances, parades, food festivals, and basi or rice wine drinking activities.
 
Batac's town fiesta, also known as the Immaculate Conception feast, is another event to watch out for. It takes place every December and highlights the Empanada Festival to showcase their native delicacy. You can also expect street dances and food festivals in this event.

Like most coastal towns, Pagudpud's specialties are its seafood dishes. La Cocina de Consuelo and Saud Beach Resort's Restaurant offers you an array of delectable seafood dishes.
 
Aside from Ilocano and Filipino food, you can also enjoy German cuisine at Bergblick Restaurant in Pagudpud, Chinese food at Red 8 in Laoag, and American dishes at Macy's Diner in Laoag as well.
 
Local Delicacy
Ilocos Norte also offers delicious empanada that will definitely give Vigan's version a run for their money. There are many road side stalls that offer this delicious Ilocano treat but to some, Batac's version is the most delicious.
