Paoay Sand Dunes, Paoay

(160+ reviews on the web)
Outdoor Activity
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. Put Paoay Sand Dunes on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Paoay trip builder.

  • This was the highlight of our northern trip other than food. Best to go there by 5pm. To get a great sunset while on the sand dunes.
  • One of the most thrilling experiences/adventures I've had! The drivers are skilled and safety-conscious. The dune guides took the most amazing jumpshots!
  • Love the sand advneture in Paoay. Great with friends and family who seeks sliding and rough driving in the dunes.
  • Whenever you are in Ilocos and either you are an adventure junky, a cultural afficionado, or a fi buff, or just appreciate the emptiness of the wide sand dune desert.
  • The sand dunes were just coming out from nowhere! What a surprise! They even let us sand board! 5 stars!
