Pagudpud is a coastal resort town on the northernmost tip of Luzon Island in the Philippines. The town’s white-sand beaches and crystal-blue water makes it a haven for tourists.
The kilometer-long Saud Beach is the main tourist area in Pagudpud. Maira-ira Point is also an emerging attraction with its secluded beach known as the Blue Lagoon.
The Patapat Viaduct is a 1.3 km concrete coastal bridge that connects the Maharlika Highway from Laoag, Ilocos Norte to the Cagayan Valley Region. It rises along the town’s coastal mountains, which is the starting point of the Cordillera Mountain Range that snakes through Northern Luzon. It is the 4th longest bridge in the Philippines.
Located more than 16 kilometers from the town proper, the Patapat Viaduct offers a scenic view of Pasaleng Bay- a view that leads towards wide and pristine beaches backed by mountains with breathtaking waterfalls Kabigan and Mabaga, along with the many cool, refreshing springs waiting to be discovered within. On a clear day, the Babuyan Islands are visible from Patapat National Park.
