Bangui Windmills, Ilocos Norte Province

(200+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • I came on a cloudy day. Watching the powerful waves hit the sea as well as the line of windmills on the clear, dark sand was awesome. The little stores sell cute keychain of the place as well, with a cheap price. There isn't much to photograph, but there is a lot to be in awe of.
  • Upon entering you will notice a sign that littering is not prohibited. The sign doesn't tell you that don't go beyond this point without a properly equipped 4WD system. You will encounter soft sand and if you get stuck you need a proper knowledge how to be resourceful on getting out. If you ever got stuck beyond the sign do not force the vehicle, stop and reassess the situation. Doing so will just dig you deeper and chances of retrieving your vehicle will be slim. First find any two long wooden flat board about 2 meters long. There are some near the first hut where you enter the dunes. Then dig under your two tires and put the two wooden flank on each tire. Place the flank where you want your vehicle to go. If your in a FWD car put it in both front tire. 2nd reduce your tire pressure between 10 to 20 psi. 3rd get in your car and put it to the lowest gear possible then drive it slowly away from the beach. Keep doing this until you are certain that your vehicle is 100% on a solid sand. Then return any flanks that you borrowed so the next vehicle that will get stuck will be able to use it.
  • The windmills are very cool... One of a kind in the country.
  • I loved the view, the real blue view, the wind, the sand and the atmosphere. The souvenir items have good prices too especially if you know how to bargain :)
  • " This northernmost part of the Philippines is the best strategic location for putting up the Wind Mill as the current of wind here is strong and has a long shoreline. Good scenery and the quite environment you will have it in this place. Not just advisable to go here in a rainy season."
