Bangui Windmills, Ilocos Norte Province

At Bangui Windmills--the largest wind farm in South Asia--watch the line of giant turbines slowly turn as they face the sea. Hear the hypnotizing sound of rotating blades and feel the power of the wind that makes them turn as you admire the row of 20 windmills, which tower 70 m (230 ft) high over the seashore. Go early to avoid the crowds and the scorching sun; at noon, the sand gets too hot to walk on, even in sandals or flip-flops. Amenities include a cafe and souvenir stalls. Bangui Windmills is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Burgos Edition.

  • One of the iconic views of the Philippines IMO. Don't even think of swimming though, the beach is not safe. People very friendly as well. They tried their best to help when we locked our keys in our car. The people seemed trustworthy so I was prepared to just leave it there overnight. - Visited Nov 2012
  • Raw nature. Don't expect any amenities within the area. Strong winds are present. The windmills look so alien which makes a great contrast. Perfect for photo ops. - Wear eyeglasses or shades to protect your eyes from the sand that's being blow - caps are ok but don't wear wide rimmed hats as they will be blown away easily - Swimming is not recommended due to strong waves - Don't park near the sandy areas
  • The wheather was gloomy when i went but it did not waste the experience. I guess its a different experience when its raining as you will witness 10 foot waves which is amazing. The stores offers free parking and toilet and to my surprise the food is very affordable. Coffee only cost 20 pesos which was perfect in a gloomy day by the beach.
  • This is my second time to visit a wind farm and as always it's breathtaking. I'm a huge fan/believer of renewable energy. This is the first wind farm in South East Asia so Filipino's should be proud.
  • The road is a bit narrow getting here but it's definitely worth the drive. With a small walk past the vendors area you can get to the beach where the turbines are installed. Getting up close to an operating wind turbine is rare and the pictures are worth the trip.
