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

While I was standing right next to one of the GIGANTIC ELECTRIC FANS, hahaha, I realized how this man-made mechanical structures become a notable tourist destination in Ilocos Norte.

Yes, i never thought these windmills are these big. Abeautiful sight harnessing the wind to produce energy. Ilocos is so blessed with beautiful sceneries.

Windmills by the beach, a cool breeze, and family time. What more could you ask for? Hubby and I visited for a quick stop with family before the road trip back to Manila.

I like it that we have this alternate source of energy. My kids enjoyed seeing big fans lols. While i'm thankful that we have this technology that lowers filipino electric charges. More windmills please. Woohhoo!

We thought that windmills are small but they were actually huge upclose. This place is really wonderful for photo shoots. We were amazed when we tried to feel one of the windmills that were operational. The body of the windmill vibrates and it gives off a roaring or whooshing like sound. When you look up at its turbines, it seems... More

If haven't travelled to other countries, then the Bangui Windmills are amazing for you. The view is spectacular since the windmills are lined up by the beach. This of course includes the very long travel from Manila and you must go to Saud Beach to swim since you've travelled the very long distance from Manila.

The stark contrast between the natural landscape and the man-made steel structures is quite eye catching. Lined up like soldiers along the beach, the symmetry, the colour, and the storm sky the day we visited, all create a unique visual experience.

The windmills dotting the shoreline of Bangui is really a sight to behold. And to know how it helps the energy requirements of the province adds to its beauty and significance.
