Batanes Mahatao Viewdeck is like taking a great big breath of fresh air

Batanes is an archipelagic province in the Philippines situated in the Cagayan Valley region. It is the northernmost province in the country, and also the smallest, both in population and land area

Batanes has become one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the country. The relatively isolated islands of the Batanes, the home of the resilient and welcoming Ivatans, with its rolling hills, subtropical climate, ancient cultures, good food, windswept traditional stone houses, and breathtaking landscapes and seascapes which perhaps make it one of the prettiest corners of the world. Its refreshingly chill vibe is unique from the other famous island destinations in the country. Whether it'll be your first time to see the country's northernmost province or you're planning to come back to rediscover the place, Batanes has plenty of spots that are worth your time.

MAHATAO VIEWDECK allows a gorgeous view of the western cliffs of Batan Island, facing the West Philippine Sea. From here, the Basco Lighthouse, in Naidi Hills, can also be spotted. It is usually the first stop of the South Batan Tour, an ideal choice because it offers a quick glimpse of what’s to come. 

Heading to the hills, you will pass by MAHATAO VIEWDECK on a steep mountainside where the cliff meets the sea. From the south of the capital on the way to Mahatao, you can easily see MAHATAO VIEWDECK with a grotto of the Virgin Mary and few stone benches where you can photoshoot and enjoy the scenic view. Since it faces the South China Sea, this spot is ideal for sunset watching. 

From the viewdeck, you can descend to more than a hundred zigzagging steps leading to a small rocky coast below where you can find naturally made pools. Climbing back up is not for the faint of knees. Never miss this famous tourist spot if you're visiting to Batanes.
