The beautiful cove named Maira-ira Beach lies in Maira-ira Point, the northern tip of Pagudpud. This beach is more popularly known as Blue Lagoon and is one of the many attractions that the Province of Ilocos Norte has to offer. It has a long stretch of white sands kissed by clear, turquoise blue water.
Take a stroll via Google Maps:



1. From Laoag, there’s a bus routing to Pagudpud on a daily basis. Fare is roughly P200 per pax.

2. From Pagudpud town proper, you can hire a tricycle which will take you straight to Blue Lagoon. Distance from the town proper to Blue Lagoon is about 18 kilometers.
