Patapat Bridge

Patapat Causeway Bridge is one of the most scenic and most photographed destinations in Ilocos Norte, in the Philippines.

The viaduct is located on the northernmost tip of Luzon Island. The bridge connects the tip of Ilocos Norte to Cagayan Valley Region. It’s 1.3 km (1,400 yd) long and is elevated 31 m (102 ft) over the sea level. It's one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

This concrete coastal bridge is 2 lanes of traffic (1 lane each direction). It connects the Maharlika Highway to the Cagayan Valley Region. This beautiful bridge that is zigzag in shape is attached to the mountain constructed to prevent accidents on the area. This viaduct was constructed to solve the problem of landslides in the area which have caused so many vehicular accidents in the past. Footed on the rocky seashore just several meters from the mountain side it gives drivers a spectacular view of Pasaleng Bay.

  

The drive is definitely worth it. Don’t forget your camera! Patapat Viaduct became a tourist attraction because it offers a majestic view of Pasaleng Bay. On a very clear day, the islands of Fuga and Calayan are visible to the naked eye. During the rainy days it shows its splendor with its water dropping rhythmically to a precipice on the rocky shore of the sea below.
