Who would have thought that this power generating windmill would be one of the must-see tourist destination in the northside of Ilocos. Situated near the seaside of Bangui, these amazing windmills are picture perfect for photo ops with friends, family or just plain selfie. The sea waves which serve as a backdrop is such an amazing view. I will definitely... More

Imagine a slightly curving beach lined up with gigantic three prop windmills all facing the towards the sea. The waves roiling and foaming, the wind blowing wildly. Albeit this location is a bit far off, it is still a must visit destination. The actual location seems chaotic due to the huge waves and strong winds, but you get a sense... More

There are several trails going to Bangui Windmills but i suggest you take northern most entry which is near Cagayan Valley (Tip: along the national road, you will see a waiting shed with a small arrow pointing to Bagui Windmill) . It's less crowded and the view is breathtaking. Unlike the other trails, it's located on the hill hence, you... More

It was simply breathtaking, just the enormity of each windmill...it reminded me of the movie "Contact" wherein Jodie Foster starred as a scientist trying to contact beings from outer space...the location was amazing as well...definitely a "must see".

It was a wonderful experience to visit Bangui Windmills specially when you see the windmills moving to generate solar power for the area. It's best to see the place between 4-5pm before sunset to witness the beautiful sunset.

Went to Ilocos Norte with my sister and we wouldn't miss this for the world. Huge windmills lined up on the beach, really magnificent. We should have more of this in the Philippines. Do not miss this awesome site.

This is what I usually see on postcards from Ilocos, their famed Ilocos Windmills - which, for an interesting sidenote and fact, produces Ilocos Norte 40% of their total electricity. Good job, government! When coming here, best to go in the morning or early afternoon, when the sky is bluest. Sets a very good backdrop. It's by the beach, but... More

Me and my sister felt like small dwarves compared to this 23storey high wind mills, it's amazingly huge. And was glad to know that the construction was for the purpose of serving the areas in and around Ilocos Norte for economical electricity consumption, not to mention the only wind farm in the Phils . However some roads is still under... More

First time to see the huge windmills in Bangui, Ilocos Norte. Nice one! I hope that others parts of our country would also emulate what Ilocos Norte done for their power generation capabilities...to use the windmill to generate power...it's clean and safe for environment. For tourist, nice to visit this place early in the morning or late in the afternoon.... More
