The Philippines’ beach was recommended for travelers who are “searching for Southeast Asian beach bliss”.

“Super-mellow Saud Beach on the island of Luzon is a sure thing. Its white sand pitches gradually into the clear-as-glass water, like a real-world example of a zero-entry swimming pool. Swim in the peaceful waves, lunch under a thatch-roof cabana under the palms, or hire an outrigger for excursions on the water,” wrote Anne Olivia Bauso.

The Department of Tourism in the Philippines acknowledged the listing of the crown jewel of Pagudpud in a social media post.

“It’s truly more fun in the Philippines as Ilocos Norte’s Saud Beach made it to Travel + Leisure’s 25 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World! Tagged as the crown jewel of Pagudpud, Saud Beach with its long curve of pure white sand and clear-as-glass water gains recognition as one of the world’s premiere beach destinations,” wrote The Philippines social media.

The Philippines has received the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp of approval from the World Tourism Council.
