Aqua Grande, Pagudpud

Pagudpud is not all about beaches. In this, and in forthcoming posts, I'll share to you the places that I have wondered while I was in that awesome place starting with the picturesque Aqua Grande.

Aqua Grande is where the river meets the sea. Crystal cool clear water from the mountains cascades through huge rocks and boulders before eventually flowing to the sea.

The place is perfect for picnics or just take-pictures with the choice background of the flowing river or the giant sea. If you decided to stay there, you could dip into natural several ponds while having a spectacular view of the blue sea.

Here are some more pics I have taken of the place:


The fresh water meets the salty one.



Mini man-made falls dropping-off in one of the pools.



Take a dip into one of the fresh water pools.



The never-ending flow of water is a sight to behold.



Large boulders on the sea shore.



Spectacular view of the rocky shores of the sea.

  4. are you in a resort when you took this shots? i like the place. i like to sit on those rocks and listen to an ipod. but it looks like the waves can also be huge and dangerous.

  9. aqua grande is a resort where you can bathe for an entrance fee of P20. But if you will just take pictures like i did, entrance is free.
