  • Nice view. Imagine mountain, sea, and falls into one. From the road, you can enjoy the view. Just sit at the side of road, you will feel relax.  more »
  • The wind is cold and salty, reminiscent of western coast. Waves are gigantic and the seascape is just picture perfect. A walkway would be perfect for weary tired souls from travelling hours to this pl...  more »
  • if you haven't seen a bridge beside a mountain then the Patapat bridge is a good place to visit. I just wished that there was a certain area where tourist could stop and get a full picture of the plac...  more »

  • It's breathtaking to be here. Plus the seeing the shinning blue water of West Philippine Sea/South China Sea.
  • Apart from its simple beauty and splendor, it is more of a bragging right to be at the northern part of Luzon. This place is both a land mark and earning the right of passage to drivers :-)
  • Awesome and scenic vista of the sea! Cleanliness is strictly observed in the area. Litters are not welcome. Penalty for offenders. Great for photo ops too, not a lot of vehicles plying this route so you have enough time to take that one memorable shot on the viaduct. We really had a great time during our short stint here! 😃
  • Picturesque and amazing structure. Standard tour rates are available in the area. Network signal is unstable in the area. There are spots where you can park and take pictures.
  • This sturdy structure still stands despite the strong waves from the north, reminds me how good a quality of builts we had some decades ago. Structures we had like in the martial law era still exist and being used today. Very ironic but true.
