If you want a beach spot that is not flocked by many people like that of Boracay, then the Blue Lagoon also known as Maira-Ira Point of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte is the perfect spot for you. It is said that Blue Lagoon is one the most beautiful beaches of the North. Here are the reasons why to include this beach in your Ilocos Tour:
- Its fine white sand is not white sand entirely. It is actually a combination of fine coarse sand and off-white rainy sand giving it a quality that may be similar to that in Boracay.
- Blue Lagoon is called so because of its waters’ bluish tint. Its waters are pretty calm as well that you can earnestly swim to your heart’s desire. The entire area is also calm and serene allowing you to enjoy every minute of your stay without any distractions.
- Blue Lagoon is a great place to stay if you want to just lay back while enjoying the cool and calm sea breeze after a day’s event in Ilocos Norte.
- There are accommodations in Blue Lagoon where you can opt to stay for the night.
Well, if you have to visit this place it takes a little bit of patience as you will be travelling hours and will have to pay extra if you’ll go there by car or bus ride. However, all that hardships and long journey will be rewarded as you’ll enjoy its gentle but surf-worthy waves, its soft white sand and the serenity of the entire place. Blue Lagoon is great place if you want a place to think, rest and relax.
