Windmills 1

Bangui Windmills

There are a lot of beautiful attractions that you’ll pass by on the way to Pagudpud, the northernmost tip of Luzon. One of these attractions are the Bangui Windmills.

The Windmills were developed by NorthWind Development Corporation as a practice in renewable energy sources. They help reduce the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. This is the fist “Wind Farm” in the Philippines consisting of wind turbines on-shore facing the West Philippine Sea/South China Sea and is considered to be the biggest in Southeast Asia.

How Do I Get There? From Laoag, take the Laoag – Cagayan route towards Burgos. After reaching Burgos, watch out for the directional marker on the left side of the road that leads to the Bangui Bay. Follow the dirt road leading to the bay. Some wind mills will already be visible from this point then make a right turn to the bay. Travel time from Laoag will approximately be an hour and a half.
