Travel: Badoc Island

Badoc Island is an uninhabited island found in Badoc, Ilocos Norte. It’s accessible by boat that can carry 5-6 people, for only Php700.

To be honest, I have no words to describe its beauty. It’s a breathe of fresh air since you get the beach to yourselves, there may be a group or two that’s visiting the island the same time as you are, but it’s a long stretch of beach, so there’s room for everyone.

I’m still at awe at how marvelous this beach is. We laid our stuff under a hut that I think some fishermen built for when they’re waiting for the tourists since what you paid for is to and fro the ‘mainland’. We were running to the beach, when my friend Sarah blurted out, “Who needs Boracay when we have this!”.

The guys had a couple of beer, shared it with the bangkeros and just really relaxed since it’s been a really long drive from Manila.

  • It isn’t forbidden to bring food/drinks with you when you go to the island, just make sure to clean up after yourself.
  • Ask the bangkeros if the fishermen are in the area, they might hook you up with affordable and freshly caught fish and squid.
