Perhaps one of the most beautiful views of the beach while on the road that one could find is this. I’ve seen numerous similar places, along the road going to Mati, Davao Oriental, along Gensan going to Maasim, Sarangani, and many others but none could compare to this.
Patapat Viaduct: A Winding Scenical Journey
The Patapat Viaduct is an elevated road — over 30 meters above sea level. The Patapat Viaduct is a 1.2 km long and 30m high bridge on stilts along the coast of Pasaleng Bay in the open South China Sea.
Connecting the Maharlika Highway in Laoag to the Cagayan Valley, this is a busy street above the coastal areas of Pagudpud. The fourth longest bridge in the country, this winding concrete beauty is said to be the northernmost roadway part of Ilocos Norte.
I would surely love to drive along this refreshing scenery!
A few kilometers away you’ll also find Agua Grande, a scenic view of a river that meets the ocean.
Souvenir Shops and The Grotto
At the end of North Pagudpud tour lies the souvenir shops and the grotto, with a flowing water nearby.
