Pagudpud is fast becoming a by-word among tourists, both local and foreign. To the west
of the town are clear blue seas, white beaches, and surfer's waves. Look to the east and you will find mountains,
the foot of the Cordilleras, covered with luxuriant, verdant forests. In Pagudpud, you can enjoy the sea and the
mountains in one swing.
The Saud white beach is a favorite destination where guests can dine in style, or
lie in bed allowing the sound of the waves to lull them into a deep reverie or even to sleep.
For those who prefer action, the waves of Mairaira are perpetually waiting for surfers. Only a stone's throw away, the
Malingay Cove, fondly called Blue Lagoon, with its calm, clear waters gently undulating over white sand, invites swimmers,
snorkelers, and sightseers.
The mountains of Pagudpud feature caves, particularly the Bantay Abot Caves. Bantay Abot
means 'a hole in the mountain,' and it is in this hole that swallows come home to in the late afternoons. You can
stand inside the hole and listen to the reverberations of the birds' songs as they bounce off the dome of the hole.
There are numerous waterfalls within the town's mountains but the most accessible of these is Kabigan Falls.
Only a little less than two kilometers from the national highway, it is an easy trek to this 80-feet high waterfall.
Its cool waters are surrounded by tall trees and lush vegetation of ferns and other flora.
