  • Go To Pebble Beach

    Pebble Beach is not quite enticing for swimming; nonetheless, tourists go there to have a close up view of the Bangui Windmill Farm. As the name implies, the beach is full of pebbles instead of sand. Your feet will sink into the pebbly shore as you walk along the shore. Expect to stop walking often to remove pebbles that enter your footwear, or get...

    On the shore of Bangui Bay, you’ll find the biggest wind turbines in Southeast Asia. The windmills are beautifully arranged in a single row, forming an arc along the shoreline. They stand 326 meters apart from each other, each with a towering height equivalent to a 23-story building. Initially, there were only 15 wind turbines, each capable of...

  • The homemade wooden windmills

    Make sure that when you buy a wooden windmill, you have to pack it carefully because this is very delicate. The propeller breaks easily. My sister bought one for her daughter and it broke right away. So make sure that you have to store it separately as this is very fragile and very delicate!

  • The necklaces and bracelets are cheap

    Make sure to bargain the bracelets as souvenir items here. You can also buy some seashells that have markings of Pagudpud Resort on them. The sellers are very polite and very courteous.I bought three bracelets for a hundred pesos, so the bracelets are a little bit less than one dollar a piece. Not bad for a homemade woven bracelet!

Bangui Transportation

  • Public Transport From Pagudpud To Bangui

    I have an adventurous friend who loved to do solo DIY trips. He had patience taking the public transportation to and around places. Let me share with you how he got his way around Bangui from Pagudpud.From Saud Beach, he took a tricycle for a 15-minute ride to the town proper of Pagudpud. From there, he got a bus bound for Laoag City. Most of the...

  • Chartered Air-conditioned Van

    For convenience, we chartered an air-conditioned van to take us from Pagudpud to Bangui. That way, we didn't have a problem waiting for a ride to and from Bangui Bay area. We were a group of 11 adults so the P2,000 van rental was cost effective and good enough for us; it amounted to less than P200/pax. The road to the Windmill Farm wasn't concrete,...

  • Tricycles

    There is not a lot of transportation going directly to the Bangui Windmills. For tourists, they have to go to the town first, hire a tricycle or a jeep. It is very costly to hire a jeep so it is best to contract a tricycle (local transportation- a motorcycle with a passenger cab attached to it. It's kind of like the "tuktuks" in Thailand).The price...

Bangui Warnings and Dangers

  • Don't Go Hungry or Thirsty!

    There is a tendency to forget the time and stay long at the Windmill Farm because of an indescribable awesome feeling amidst the giant wind turbines. Make sure to bring water lest you be dehydrated. Don't go there hungry. Bringing cookies, chocolates and other snack items will do you good, especially if you have health concerns. We didn't find any...

  • Strong Waves At Pebble Beach

    The morning we were at Pebble Beach, the waves were strong. The cold, clear water could be tempting to get our feet wet and refreshed. If you’re traveling with small children, make sure they have responsible companions while strolling at the shoreline to prevent accidents or drowning.

Bangui Tourist Traps

  • Bring your own snacks and food

    There are no food or snack stores here so if you bring your children, make sure to bring their own water bottle, snacks or food. When we were there, it was very hot and humid so it is important that we had to drink a lot of water. My family brought an icebox where we filled it with juices, drinks and water. We also packed our own lunches to save...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: seeing these wind turbines up close, all lined up in Bangui Bay was a very memorable experience! it was a sight to behold! not to mention the good thing it does to our fellow Ilocanos. thanks to the Marcoses for coming up with this brilliant idea!

    Fondest memory: we arrived in Bangui around 10:00 am, twas' windy indeed and for us to get close to these windmills and to take pictures as well, we've to endure this oh so hot trek down the shoreline. one need to have his/her own mode of transportation going there. Best to see this windmills early in the morning or during sunset.
