Paoay Sand Dunes, Paoay

4.7
#1 of 22 in Outdoors in Ilocos Region
Experience exhilerating thrills riding 4X4 vehicles and sand boarding among the arid Paoay Sand Dunes. Here, you'll be driven across the undulating sandy terrain, hanging onto the bars of the off-road vehicle as it ascends and descends the contours of the landscape. You'll also stop at a tall dune, which doubles as a slope, to try out your sand boarding skills. Not too dissimilar to snowboarding, you can carve your way down the sandy slope to the bottom. Be sure to bring along plenty of water, a sun hat, and sunblock, and consider taking the excursion early in the day, as the area offers little respite from the sun.

    This place is like a dessert in the middle of a tropical country. It has been a thrilling sand dune experience riding the 4x4 truck.

    This was one of the highlights of our Ilocos tour! Will definitely come back! Definitely for thrill-seekers! I suggest coming here an hour before sunset so the heat's bearable. The sunset view on the beach is magnificent!

    Outdoor adventure is fun, like 4wdrive ride along the sea coast and hillside sand dunes. Sand boarding at incline and steepy hills is so much fun.

    Breath taking ride with the 5x5 but worth an experience of a life time. Its Php 2,500 for a an hour good for five persons. Sand boarding is free and its unlimited. 😊
