10 Beach Resorts in Ilocos Norte for Your Next Vacation
There are lots of things to discover in our beaches up north.
(SPOT.ph) Ilocos Norte in northern Luzon has a little bit of everything for any type of traveler. Heritage lovers can bask in the stories of the Spanish-colonial Cape Bojeador Lighthouse and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Saint Augustine Church (a.k.a. Paoay Church). Adventurers can ride a 4x4 across the La Paz Sand Dunes or walk around the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, while beach lovers can go surfing in Pagudpud or take a dip in the Boracay-esque Blue Lagoon. If you're planning to visit one of these tourist hotspots, it's always best to book a hotel room that's not only comfortable and affordable, but also follows health and safety protocols.
