"This is one of the many waterfalls in the municipality of Suyo"

"Sangbay" is the term widely used as an Ilocano (Iloco) word for waterfalls aside from "Burayok" and "Torayok". One of these is the Sangbay of Suyo, Ilocos Sur.
Sangbay of Suyo is a small cascade on a solid river bedrock with few natural pools along it.

 Please practice the leave no trace outdoor ethics when going to these nature places. Let us not vandalize, put graffiti on their rocks and stone walls. Manage and dispose our waste products properly.  

Subject   : SANGBAY (waterfalls)
Location : Barangay of Poblacion
                 Municipality of Suyo
                 Province of Ilocos Sur

How to get there:
1-      From Manila, take a bus going to any of these northern Luzon places such as : Laoag City, Vigan City, Candon City and Abra. All of these passes through Tagudin, Ilocos sur, so get down at BITALAG JUNCTION which is located few minutes away after the Yellow Market (Tagudin’s Public Market).
2-      At Bitalag Junction (Bitalag is a barangay of Tagudin) wait for or look for the tricycles with white and green paint (yellow tricycles are for Tagudin’s). With 25 pesos as fair going to Suyo , Ilocos Sur, you may pay the whole tricycle for 150 pesos for the total passengers of 5. Tell the driver to get you down at Suyo Municipal Hall.
3-      At Downtown Suyo (Municipal hall area) you may:
Walk going back (going east) on the main road and before reaching the bridge take the rough road going north (your right side when facing east). Ask directions along the way.Where the river branches, choose the western one (the eastern river leads to "Darawa Falls"). Keep on following the river bed upstream to the falls.


Please feel free to visit their Municipal Hall for more info. You may look for Leah A. Esperanza (LRCO-1/Acting Tourism Officer) for guidance.
