Santiago Cove is dubbed as the “Boracay of Ilocos Sur” because of its white sands –

Touring around the province of Ilocos Sur, on a cruising pace, one can visit the Santiago Cove, a beautiful stretch of fine sand beach in Santiago town with amenities for picnics and water sports.

Santiago Cove in Ilocos Sur is approximately 51 km away from San Fernando La Union. The cove has a perfect crescent-shaped shore (like a half moon). –

Located after Candon City as you head up the north, the Municipality of Santiago Ilocos Sur is the home to what I said earlier as the Boracay of Ilocos Sur. Known for its powdery white coast, calm and shallow waters laid against green mountains, Santiago Cove is a perfect spot for picnics as well as for swimming. Cottages located alongside can be rented at reasonable price. Small establishments for eating are also found nearby. 

I have no more things to say about this place aside from that you will spend for the tricycle fare from getting to the cove itself from the national highway. Also, it would be travel-worthy if you’re going to: 

(1) explore the place as far as you could 

(2) play hide-and-seek with the shy hermit crabs 

(3) ask the locals where you can see the flamboyant-colored sea urchins.-
