DOT celebrates Saud Beach inclusion in the 25 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World list of Travel and Leisure

The Department of Tourism (DOT) cheers with the world as Travel & Leisure (T+L) names Saud Beach in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte among the 25 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World.

The inclusion of Saud Beach in the international travel site’s A-list is a first for the coastal area of Pagudpud, also dubbed as ‘Boracay of the North’.  The T+L boasted of “its white sand pitches gradually into the clear-as-glass water, like a real-world example of a zero-entry swimming pool.”

The DOT salutes the sole Philippine entry to the list, joining the ranks of other globally-recognized beaches such as the Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Hanelei Bay in Kauai, Hawaii;  Cape Le Grand National Park in Western Australia and others.
