Paoay Sand Dunes, Paoay

4.8
#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.

  • Back here again last Nov 14, 2017. We really enjoy our adventure. We survived the sand dunes 4x4 challenge.
  • Best to go early in the morning. You won't enjoy the activities with the sun searing hot.
  • I fell in love with the sand literally. I enjoyed the thrilling 4x4 ride before I kissed the sand and we started hugging each other while rolling when i fall from the sandboard. Great adventure awaits here, and be prepared to get dirty.
  • a different kind of experience for me and my friends! This place is worth a visit. 👍🏻
  • Great experience. The 4x4 ride is expensive if you're not five in the group, other than that, the fee is worth it. Good view of the beach and sand dunes though the ride can be a bit risky for the passengers but the drivers seem well trained. Good experience with sandboarding. The guides are skilled in taking photos and videos.
