Pagudpud lies on, the northwestern coast of the Ilocos Region and on the western slopes of the Cordillera Mountain ranges, specifically between the towns of Bangui Ilocos Norte and Sta. Praxedes, Cagayan. It is about 74 kilometers northwest of Laoag City and 180 kilometers southwest of Aparri, Cagayan. It is bounded on the south by the town of Bangui, on the west by the South China Sea, on the northeast by the town of Adams, and the province of Cagayan on the north,
It has a total agricultural land area of 19,775 hectares and forest and pasture of lands. It has rolling hills and plains that extend to the seashores
The prevailing weather and climatic condition of the place is very different from those of the rest of the province. The rainy season occupies a relatively longer period than that of the other towns; the dry season is very short. This is due to the climatic condition of the neighboring province of Cagayan, which is characterized by a relatively long rainy season and very short dry season.
Fifteen barangays comprise the town. Most of these are situated along the national road, which contribute about 16 percent of the total land area. The poblacion is the smallest town.
Pagudpud was established as a regular, municipality on February 5, 1954 that was signed by then our late Former President Ramon Magsaysay. At first, there were only nine barangays of the town, but today, there are already 15.
It is said that during the American Occupation, there were two Americans (a man and his son) who accidentally passe4 by the place looking for a better place to stay in. On their way, they had to cross a river by boat. While crossing it, the boy saw ar-arugan (seaweed) being carried by the water. The boy said "Pa, good food,ý and the man replied ýYes, my son." It was from that incident that the town was named Pagudpud, euphony of "Pa, good food." I get this story from one of the Pagudpud websiteý very interesting that I have to put it here I my pages.
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, ýPagudpud 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 offerý.
Drive along the north expressway and exit at the northernmost exit point. Follow the national road leading to Mabalacat... more travel advice
