Welcome to Pagudpud & Around
Pagudpud is the stuff of glossy postcards: white-sand beaches, swaying green palms, water that shimmers through every cool shade of blue. There are singing frogs at night and friendly locals by day. A clutch of stylishly renovated hotels and the best kitesurfing in the Philippines, giving Pagudpud cred as ‘the next big thing on the surfing circuit’, have put this lonely stretch of coastline on the tourist map, although it mercifully remains sleepy compared to the likes of Boracay. If you're looking for blue water and white sands in North Luzon, make this your first stop.
