We still have one last stop before we have our lunch. We didn't mind our hunger because this is the highlight of our Ilocos Norte tour: Bangui Windmills.

Bangui Windmills
It was difficult to reach the shore since you have to pass through a one lane gravel road with a downward slope. I was so excited to see the windmills that I wanted to jump out of the van as soon as I saw them. They were so gigantic! I didn't expect them to be that big! It was also difficult to have a decent photo since the wind was so strong.


As of the moment, there are 20 wind turbines standing along the shoreline of Bangui Bay and facing the West Philippine Sea. They were said to be created to help reduce the greenhouse gases that causes global warming.

The windmills are not only a tourist attraction but they also serve as the province's electric power generators. They provide 40% of the total electric requirement of Ilocos Norte.

Best to visit is in the afternoon before the sun sets. There are several restaurants nearby where you can have your lunch or snack. Also, there are souvenir shops where you can buy "pasalubong" for your family and friends.
