Batanes Tayid Lighthouse Travel Guide Written From Over 5 Years Local Experience

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.

TAYID LIGHTHOUSE is located in Mahatao, South Batan. Built around the same time as Basco Lighthouse, this structure faces the Pacific Ocean and is best seen from the Rakuh a Payaman. Unlike its sister lighthouse in Basco, which has a round tower deck, the Tayid Lighthouse has a hexagonal tower deck. 

Many tourists consider it an 18th-century-old edifice, but in reality, it was built during the early 2000s. The establishment of Tayid Lighthouse, as well as the Basco and Sabtang lighthouses, was a proposal of the former Representative Butch Abad. 

Built initially for guiding boats and ships traveling near Batan Island, the lighthouse now doubles as a tourist spot. The tower deck offers a panoramic view of the surrounding green landscapes, open ocean, and the nearby Mount Iraya. TAYID LIGHTHOUSE can be best viewed from the and Diura Fishing Village and the main viewing point of Marlboro Country.
