...and the rest of Pagudpud.

I've combined three locations that we visited in Pagudpud that we did not spend too much time at for different reasons but let me share photos and information about it.

First photo you see is a group photo at the signeage that says Agua Grande. An evidence that we really did go to the place but just viewed it from the entrance. You've seen everything from the entrance and since we've dipped at the falls and planned that the next dip would be at the lagoon, we decided to not go in. There was an entrance fee of 20 pesos and the only way to enjoy the place is to go and feel the river.

This is known for its eco-friendly and non carbon producing mini-hydro electric power plant. It has been providing a renewable and alternative power supply to the consumers of Pagudpud, Bangui, Dumalneg, Adams and Burgos.



The park you'll notice has huts, picnic tables and a stony creek moving its way to the sea. It's a good place for just sitting in between or on the big rocks or pebbles, freshening up with the water and relaxing. You can either choose to go for the fresh or salt water.  Bonding moments with family, friends or loved ones by enjoying nature and capturing moments.   

We were here!!!! :)



A couple of meters away from Agua Verde is Paraiso ni Anton or Anton's Paradise. At first I thought it was a resort basing it on the name...but it was one of those said to be believed miraculous healing waters that comes from the mountain.  

A lot of people would drink or bring home water from here.
I guess...this has stopped after DENR came out with the memo
 




We wanted to end the day at the Blue Lagoon a.k.a Maira-ira Beach. Because it's the blue lagoon!!! They say you'll feel like Brooke Shields when you're there. Hmmm....I know she stars in that movie which was shown decades ago so I did not entirely get what they meant. It is a half moon in shape and it really is indeed blue. What I love about it is that the sand is so fine. I remember saying to my companions that it is similar to Boracay sand, not as white... but as fine. I said that without knowing that Blue Lagoon is considered as Boracay of the North.
