Bangui Windmills | Pride of Ilocos


After the relaxing visit in Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, we drove more than an hour for our next destination.  This time, we took the highway going to Bangui, Ilocos Norte; so the simple driving skills are necessary.

Along the highway are the modern and artistic houses but some are antiques. The human size windmills can also be found on the side of the highway that adds beauty and art.  The highway is totally different compared to the highway of Metro Manila in terms of traffic.

When the driver stopped on the parking space, there were a lot of vehicles, so we were not the first one to visit the place.  When the door of the van was opened, I easily felt the hot temperature, but the wind coming from the ocean was cold.

Bangui Wind Farm is the place that converts wind energy into electrical energy which is situated in Bangui, Ilocos Norte.  This wind farm has 20 units of 70-meter high wind turbines, stretching along 9 kilometers shoreline of Bangui and is facing the South China Sea.  Each of the turbines are 326 meters apart from each other.

On the shoreline of Bangui, where the turbines are located, you can see the view of the hills and ranges nearby.  The coastline actually has a gray sand and clear waters.  The souvenir shops were built few meters from the shoreline.  There were key chains, basi, t-shirts and other items sold in every shops.
