There is something about bodies of water that mystically draw people to them – and Blue Lagoon has this same magic and lots more.
Many are just mesmerised by the beauty of Blue Lagoon. No wonder why many people from in and out of the country brave hours of travel to the Maira-Ira Point of Pagudpud in Ilocos Norte just to spend a day or two in this wonderful place.
It could be because of the fine, white sand, the crystal clear blue water that stretches and connects with the South China Sea, the breathtaking view of the whole expanse of the lagoon or the entire local experience that only Blue Lagoon offers.
No wonder it has become one of the top spots to visit in Ilocos. However, even if the place has already gained prominence among many tourists, it has been able to retain its beautiful seclusion in contrast to many popular but crowded beaches in the country. To put it simply, the place has created a balance offering both vacation serenity and adventure.
Finding a place to stay is also not a problem as it offers various types of lodging for people with different travelling budget and taste from the backpackers to those who are fond of lavish accommodation. The place’s versatility also extends to the kind of activities it offers. In fact, what makes the lagoon more enticing is the fact that it caters to tourists who seek solace and peace in their beach travels and also those who are dying to try all kinds of beach adventure. All you need is to know where to look and in Blue Lagoon you will not find this difficult to do.
Gaining prominence is the zip line ride over the majestic blue water. Yes, you have it right – flying over one end of the lagoon’s shore to another. This offers not just a jaw-dropping view of the lagoon but it also allows you to experience one of those childhood fantasies of literally flying on top the sea that most people dream to have.
For the less adventurous, you can always go back to frolicking or sunbathing on the sand, enjoying the scenery or being one with the locals.
And, of course, since you are in Ilocos, one of the best things to enjoy in Blue Lagoon is the food. Must-try is the array of restaurants (most are especially located near homestay) where you can choose among their display of seafoods for them to cook.
So what are you waiting for? Start planning and packing for your Blue Lagoon escapade.
