  • 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! 😃
  • 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.
  • The view is AWESOME. Ilocos is really something. You will really enjoy the vacation here.
  • This bridge / viaduct has become one of Ilocos Norte's tourist attractions. It presents visitors with a beautiful view of the sea and the greenish mountains.
  • From 1986 to 2017... the 4th longest bridge in the Phils
