We have ourselves stayed at the Pagudpud Curammeng Homestay while building our Tartaruga's Hotel. This is a really comfortable and pleasant homestay and virtually across the road from the Saud Beach entrance. You cant get closer to the beach than this, get your feet in the warm water and white sand between your toes. The two rooms are comfortable with air conditioning, one room has two double beds and the other a double with single bunk above so its great for families
The living room is good with satellite TV available.
The kitchen is very good as well and we fed a large family easily from here, and we cooked many meals when we did cook.
The bathroom and toilet room is good and they have hot and cold water showers which is excellent, we can attest to that.
They will get booked out very quickly once the Covid restrictions are finally lifted and given its perfect beach position there is a very good reason. We can definitely recommend this homestay.
The area that is Pagudpud is situated amongst lush and green verdant mountains, luxuriant valleys, rolling hills and flat coastal plains. The 20,000 individuals who reside in Pagudpud and the surrounding area subsist on rice farming, general agriculture, and fishing. Be advised that the fresh fish and lobsters here are absolutely luscious and low-cost. Unfortunately more and more tourists are getting to know the secrete and so even more recently tourism is growing, at least before the pandemic.
The local region comprises genuinely beautiful and almost abandoned beaches, dramatic waterfalls, arresting picturesque vistas which make for great Instagram posts, and a real genuine get away from the rat race feeling. There are not many places you can do that these days. It is no wonder that so many movies and television commercials are filmed nearby. Just stop and consider a beach without too many tourists, no noisy jet skis, no strip of seedy bars and not even a McDonalds restaurant! How is that for paradise? Works for me!
The district is situated to the north of Bangui and their now famous windmills, with many more new wind generators planned. Inland lies the monumental and daunting Cordillera Mountain Range, the largest mountain range in the Philippines. Across the other side of the mountain range lies the province of Cagayan. To the North and the West are the inviting waters of the South China Sea. Go dip your toes in the warm waters.
Many foreign tourists are today becoming really interested and recently one of Australia's most respected and notable foreign travel writers ranked Saud Beach as Number 1 on the list of the Top Ten best Asian Beaches. Why not uncover Pagudpud before the tourists find out. Enjoy Pagudpud Curammeng Homestay and enjoy our local region.
