Pagudpud’s white-sand beaches and crystal-blue water makes it a haven for tourists. Coconut trees line much of the town’s coast. On a clear day, the Babuyan Islands are visible from Patapat National Park.
The Patapat Viaduct connects the Maharlika Highway from Laoag to the Cagayan Valley Region. It rises along the town’s coastal mountains, which is the starting point of the Cordillera Mountain Range that snakes through Northern Luzon. It offers a scenic view of Pasaleng Bay – a view that leads towards wide and pristine beaches backed by mountains with breathtaking waterfalls Kabigan and Mabaga, along with the many cool, refreshing springs waiting to be discovered within.
