Lobster is only P300.00 (4 big pieces) we had 1 piece each with garlic/butter/pepper/salt as the sauce. Fish are really fresh and cheap also. Feels like a great vacation, really! You can buy them at the nearby talipapa along the hi-way. You can get there through tricycle or better yet arranged for the tricycle to pick you up at the resort then bring you back. P25/head tricycle ride 1-way.
Fondest memory: Great beach! One of the best beaches I have seen in the Philippines. Very clear water with blue and green water. It is a cove so it has great color. But the water is quite deep. Biglang lalim yung water. There is a part there that you can go snorkeling.
The teamwork of the people when they do their fishing is amazing! Hehe
Very serene place, I can actually stare at the green water for hours and get so refreshed! Not yet commercialized, so the place is very natural, with 180 degrees greeneries.

Favorite thing: I don't know if the various resorts' restaurants still allow this, but you can save money by bringing canned goods and having them cook the food for you there. In our case, we just ordered a pot of soup (bulalo or sinigang) and rice (servings are sensible-- see picture), and the cook saw to it that our canned goods served their purpose. Yum! of course, you'll have to leave a hefty tip, but it's nothing compared to the money you'll save on food!

Pagudpud also is best known for its pristine beaches and serving as a backdrop for many Siguion-Reyna films (a movie producer that love this place very much) they said, “Pagudpud was our main destination for this holiday tour. After having been there, we vowed to come back to experience once again the local hospitality and explore more of the natural attractions that the place has to offer”.
Fondest memory: It’s along drive and tiring journey if you go there by your private vehicle but once you saw the place… all you’re tiring and long journey is worthwhile… I guarantee you that.
One of my friend just went to Pagudpud last April 2004, he told me that it looks like you’ve seen Boracay Island already more cheaper and department of tourism is doing everything to preserve the place so people will enjoy the scenic and awesome beauty of this place.
Fondest memory: What i miss most about Pagudpud is the UNCOMMERCIALIZED beach front and the serenity of the place itself...I hope i could go back as soon as i can...
Favorite thing: This is available anywhere in Ilocos (I think mostly in Laoag). Just please please please try the super yummy empanada. It's huge and it's ORANGE! hehehe! Words can't describe how yummmmy the are.
