Breathtaking Bangui Wind Farm

By on June 21, 2021

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.

The Iconic Windmills of Bangui, 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.

The Beautiful Black Water Lagoon of Piat

By on June 4, 2021

Catch the first glimpse of Black Water Lagoon on a beautiful clear day, just a short distance away, a little bit climb on the stairs to reach the top of the Iconic Piat hill (Itawis landmark) to see the panoramic views of the mountains from east to west, you’ll also witness your favorite time of day; the sunrise and sunset and grand view of the whole town. The Black Water Lagoon of Piat Cagayan is a family-friendly park and a part of People’s Integrated Agri Tourism Center, it’s just 10-min walk from Basilica Minore Nuestra Senora De Piat.

Photo taken during my recent visit to Piat, it reminds me of my beautiful hometown. Looking back is my own way to stay connected, I miss my hometown where we used to live, my birthplace Piat Cagayan. I miss not only the food but also the people I’ve known since childhood. Every chance had taken away by uncertainty brought by the pandemic. I’m longing to be home again soon when life return to normal.

Note: Stay safe! Protect yourself and follow safety and health protocols.
