Paoay Sand Dunes (4×4 Adventure and Sand Boarding)

One of the main reasons why I chose Ilocos Norte to spend my birthday was because of the famous Paoay Sand Dunes. Familiar? It was featured in some local movies like Ang Panday, Himala and the remake of Temptation Island among others. Just last year, they were promoting Ilocos Norte as film tourism destination.

Paoay Sand Dunes is an 88 km stretch of sand and is adjacent to Suba Beach. The moment we set foot here I was in awe. It was almost sunrise that made it more beautiful.

It was also my first time to ride a 4×4 and we giggled the moment we experienced our first bump.

It even became more exciting when we started rolling in the dunes.

The most thrilling part was when we were brought to the highest hill, halt on its edge, told to hold on tight then went down for a seems to be a rollercoaster ride.

An then we tried sand boarding. It’s like water surfing however instead of water it is sand, well obviously. Lol. I was a bit nervous to try it for fear of tumbling down and true enough I tumbled down. Worst I fell flat on my face. Haha.

Even the best fall down sometimes as Howie Day said in his song Collide. 😀 Yep, that’s me (the 4th picture in the collage) told you I tumbled down. Haha. I had a bad fall. I fractured my left shoulder as a result.

Nevertheless we had fun! It’s an  exhilarating and memorable experience. Guaranteed a must try when in Ilocos Norte!
