Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 13)— One Philippine destination made it to a renowned travel magazine’s list of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

The Saud Beach in Ilocos Norte was featured by New-York based Travel + Leisure as one of the 25 Most Beautiful Beaches in the world, a list of which was published on its website on Monday.

It was the only Philippine beach that made the cut.

“If you're searching for Southeast Asian beach bliss, super-mellow Saud Beach on the island of Luzon is a sure thing,” according to Travel + Leisure.

The magazine noted the island's white sand and “clear-as-glass water” — which it further described as a “real-world example of a zero-entry swimming pool.”

“Swim in the peaceful waves, lunch under a thatch-roof cabana under the palms, or hire an outrigger for excursions on the water,” it added.

The beach in Pagudpud joins other renowned landmarks — including beaches in Hawaii, Bahamas, French Polynesia, Australia, Greece, and Brazil.
