Noticed this scenery from the highway on our way to Vigan, Ilocos Sur on Saturday morning. We were on the road for almost 8 hours and needed some fresh air---this place has plenty of it. This is located in a town called Santa in Ilocos Sur, 387 kilometers north of Manila, not far from the Gabriela Silang Memorial Park. The beach faces the South China Sea and across the highway is the denuded Ilocos Range.
"The mountain in the east, the winding, roping river in the north, and the immense sea in the west make Santa a poetic town." ~ by Governor General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. when he visited Santa in 1925
