5 Extreme Bridges in the Philippines that Offer Stunning Views

Let’s cross that bridge when we get there!


The Patapat Viaduct is a viaduct in the town of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, a coastal resort town on the northernmost tip of Luzon Island in the Philippines. The bridge is elevated 31 meters over sea level. This concrete coastal bridge is 1.3 km long and connects the Maharlika Highway from Ilocos Region to Cagayan Valley.

The Patapat Viaduct rises along the town’s coastal mountains, which is the starting point of the Cordillera Mountain Range that snakes through Northern Luzon. This is the 4th longest bridge in the Philippines. This is a favorite stopover for road-trippers and motorcyclists because of its rewarding vantage point of the coastal highway before reaching Pagudpud.
