ilocos november 2014 part five: maira-ira blue lagoon x bantay abot cave

Posted on: January 5, 2015


we had lunch at maira-ira blue lagoon, i’m not exactly sure if there really was a lagoon in the place, but the water sure was blue.


the sand is white and clean and you can spot tiny crab hotels while walking around.


we passed time in one of these huts, there’s not much that i liked here except for the lunch, which was packed for us,  and the sand exfoliating my feet, lol. on a side note, the restrooms were slightly filthy.


our next stop was bantay abot cave… i’ve researched a bit, and in ilocano, it means ‘mountain with a hole’, as for cave… well, maybe there was a cave before?


to get there, one must jump off this bridge, haha, no…


there are stairs and an old ladder, challenge talaga yung ladder e, i thought it was going to break at any moment.


there’s the mountain and the sea and the clouds, just doing their thing… tapos selfie din. hahaha.


so here’s bantay abot


a little bit closer…


close up in your face, uh… hole. bantay abot, i believe, is actually a natural arch that is a result of erosion. don’t skip it when visiting pagudpud, it’s kind of cool.

yun lang muna.
