Nature at its Best at Ayoyo Beach

I just discovered another wonder of nature in Ilocos Norte yesterday when I went with Drs. Rey and Icy to Pagudpud for a nature tripping. It is the Ayoyo Beach situated in Brgy. Caparispisan Sitio Ayoyo of the said town. It has a distance of 12 kms from the town hall and its around 25 minutes drive to it. On the road we passed by Saud Beach, Polaris Beach and Casa Teresita Resorts. There was a stretch of pine tree plantation along the way and as we approached the site, on top of a hill a wonderful sight of the beach amazed me.

We stopped near the creek as we crossed over it by a suspension makeshift bridge made of two cylindrical iron tubes with a bamboo gutter. Then trek to the beach front. The water in the creek comes from a spring from the mountains that flows down to the beach. There were coral rocks that lets you enjoy the beach water on a knee deep. I did not hesitate to take a dip at once at the pristine water. Truly it was so refreshing. A cave was also present to enjoy and shield you against the sun.

This place is indeed secluded and very private since there were not much people around, only a couple of fishermen. You can even swim in the nude. This site is unexplored and unexploited and that one can truly commune with nature. Ayoyo Beach is simply nature at its best.
