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.

Another tourist attraction that can be found in Basco is PAG-ASA RADAR STATION, also known as Tukon Radar Station. It was once a lighthouse that was also used as a United States weather station. It is located on a hilltop and is only 2.75 kilometers away from Basco, Batanes. 

You can climb the top of the tower in PAG-ASA RADAR STATION. The top offers a breath-taking and magnificent 360-degree view of Batan Island, the South China Sea, Mt. Iraya and Basco proper on one side and boulder-lined cliffs and the Pacific Ocean on the other side. You can also enjoy the strong cool wind of the town from the sea passing through the hills and trees. Today, the structure houses the Basco Radar Station.
