Badoc Island is located on the upper north west coast of Luzon in the province of Ilocos Sur. The Island is located about a kilometer off shore from the small town of Badoc itself and is private property.
By road you are several hours north of San Fernando and La Union. Although
the coastal road is scenic and has various small towns, well worth stopping
off at for a break. Places such as Bandar, Candan and Narvacan. You
will also pass through Vigan which is another surf spot just south of
Badoc. Bus services run north from San Fernando or of course you can
hire a private car or van.

Pulutan (from the Filipino word pulutin which literally means "something that is picked up") is a term roughly analogous to the English term "finger food". Originally, it was a snack accompanied with liquor or beer but has found its way into Philippine cuisine as appetizers or, in some cases, main dishes, as in the case of sisig.

Adobo is one of the most popular Filipino dishes and is considered unofficially by many as the national dish. It usually consists of pork or chicken, sometimes both, stewed or braised in a sauce usually made from vinegar, cooking oil, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns, and soy sauce. It can also be prepared "dry" by cooking out the liquid and concentrating the flavor. Bistek, also known as "Filipino beef steak," consists of thinly sliced beef marinated in soy sauce and calamansi and then fried in a skillet that is typically served with onions.
