Bangui, Ilocos Norte is a home of the first windmill in southeast Asia, it is considered one of the best spots in the province and have become a tourist attraction. You can see here the panoramic beauty of the giant turbines towering over the beachscape of Bangui. Group of wind turbines used to produce sustainable energy to generate electricity, the wind turbines catch wind’s energy with their giant propeller-like blades. In the past, the old windmills originally developed for pumping water and used to grind grains but the modern equivalent of windmills as we know of today, used to generate electricity. Netherlands is famous for windmills but China with a long coastline and large mass has the most windmills.
Photos taken a year ago during my visit to the province, my passion is just simple, to take photos for blogs and to document beautiful places I’ve been to. I continue adding more great photos each time we travel somewhere. Here are my photo collection of the iconic windmills by the sea. It was a great experience to see all the beautiful places of Ilocos especially Bangui Windmills, Kapurpurawan Rock Formation and Culili Point Sand Dunes in Paoay, Ilocos Norte.

It is a must-see. Never mind the sizzling hot day and air pressure blowing very hot, it’s all worth to see natural resources providing electricity for the region.
The breathtaking view of the windmills with the blue sea and blue sky in background.

While driving around Pagudpud, we made a bit stop and slow a bit to see the group or windmills from a far…
It was really beautiful ! No wonder this tourist spot is a big hit among young and adults. Ilocos is really a family-friendly destination.
