Fun ride

This is a fun activity to do if the weather cooperates. We had to cut our trip short because of rain but we definitely enjoyed the scenery and the ride.

If you don't like sand and dust and wind and direct sunlight, don't go here. Riding the ATVs is fun and exhilarating and the place has very beautiful views. Recommended activity if you're travelling with kids and the adventurous types.. also ok for bucket-listers.

We went there around 6.m.We were the first costumer, good thing the ATV and 4x4 rental was already open. They gave us a package (unlimited sand surfing provided we go for the 4x4 ride first).Taking their offer was worth it. The 4x4 ride was extremely mind blowing,even our younger companions were thrilled. Some of us tried the ATV as well,it... More

The adrenaline rush that you'll feel when the 4x4 starts hovering fast, going down below, is just breathtaking! (literally) I still remember hearing manong driver's tip na "Kapit Lang" 😉

First time at the Sand Dunes and first time in a 4x4 tailgate! My cousins and I made sure we brought our GoPros and lots of courage because some parts of the course were crazy! We even go to stop at certain spots and take pics. One of my cousins lost his hat and they gladly sent someone to go... More

The experience was awesome because of so many bumps and slopes. We had tensed muscles to hold on to the bars to avoid falling over the open 4x4 land cruiser.

Taking 4 by 4 for 1500 peso per half hour is a little expensive sliding with surfboard down the dunes is not included but fun. Experienced drivers show you around the coast taking pics with you. nice beach along the dunes. later we took the atv for 800 Peso half hour you can drive by your own - very recommended... More

sand dunes are always in the itinerary and guide books whenever ilocos norte is mentioned. it was thrilling and exciting but exhausting and can get old real quick. the sand boarding was good but other than that it was just so so
