One of the attractions at the northern point of Pagudpud is Bantay Abot Cave. If you are going to Maiara-ira Cove, it might be worth a quick stop for some photo op and a chance to admire the beautiful surroundings.
To get close to Bantay Abot Cave requires going down on foot from the main road. It was low tide when we came so the rocks were dry and exposed, otherwise, had we come during high tide, we wouldn't be able to take the small kids with us because the rocks are uneven and slippery apart from being submerged in sea water.

At closer inspection one would realize it's not really a cave but a rocky hill with a hole. It's an interesting work of nature (probably from an earthquake) seated by the sea.
The view of the ocean water hitting the rock formations are simply stunning. I can stay here all day just watching the horizon!
Nature is simply at its finest here. I love the small rock formations scattered all over the shore. The shallow water is crystal clear and very inviting. However, we were cautious not to take a dip as the rocks could be very slippery. Just take plenty of selfies and you're good to go!
