Pagudpud: a haven away from the city

NOTE:  I would like to say sorry for this very very late post. This was supposed to be posted a month ago , but I was just waiting for the other photos from my Aunt because she has better shots. Unfortunately, she was able to delete all the photos in her DSLR so I have to deal with a poor resolution shots.

Pagudpud would be probably the "Boracay of the North." Its white-sand and crystal blue water makes it a haven for tourist. It will never fail to surprise you how beautiful and serene the place is. 

Hannah's Beach Resortis an exclusive and luxurious beach resort, located in  front of the famous Blue Lagoon (Maira-ira Beach) at Brgy. Balaoi, Malingay, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. 

When you are in Hannah's, you would really have an amazing experience, which you will surely never forget. It gives you the feel as if you are in  Los Angeles, California, sunbathing and dipping in the beach. The whole place was actually a paradise because it gives you an extra-ordinary moment away from the metro or city.  

    Rooms are furnished with elegant and luxurious interior.  For accommodations, you can check it here

Of course, going to beach wouldn't be the same if you won't try to get some henna. haha. Because of this, I just can't wait for my future Boracay escape (I wonder when will that be.)

A stolen shot by my cousin, me with my aunt after the wonderful and amazing banana boat ride.

The place was filled with human-sized statue or sculptures of fictional characters like Gundam, Spongebob, Dinosaurs, Shrek Family, and even a huge Palayok (Pot). Too bad other photos were deleted so I have only few nice shots.

The view from the inside of Hannah's. It really looks like an exclusive subdivision of Los Angeles. Philippines do have world-class beaches, we just have to develop and preserve the beauty of it. We surely have everything to provide for the world and we can compete with other world-class beaches.

Me, fooling around with the sculpture of Mr. Bean. It surely doesn't look like him. Therefore, this is an epic fail of Mr. Bean's replica. hahahaha.

This is the view from the top of the Hannah's Resort, which captures a wonderful view of the whole resort.

It has been numerous times since I visited Pagudpud, but this is certainly the best experience I ever had. It really surprised me how beautiful this resort is. I just want to spend a night here with someone special to me. It would be fun if we have our other relatives spend this experience with us.

Another pool on the other side of the resort. 

Adam's play is a playground for children. It has a trampoline, seesaws, slides and many more that children will really enjoy and have fun. 

On our way home, we decided to stop by in the famous leaning church of Ilocos Norte. The St. Andrew Church and the Belfry were constructed together in 1953, but the church was destroyed by an earthquake; hence the rebuilding of a new one.

We were not able to go to other must-see in Ilocos Norte because the trip was really exhausting. But I am looking forward for another Ilocos Norte Escapade with my Family. I know this would not be the last trip, since Vintar City of Ilocos Norte is our hometown. I shall return and conquer more adventure.

Dare yourself to take an adventure.
Feel being young, wild and free.
