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. 

Take a break from swimming, hiking, and see how the fishermen in Batanes live their daily lives at the Diura Fishing Village. The village is an idyllic village tucked in a small cove east of Mahatao. 

DIURA FISHING VILLAGE is most alive during summer where the official fishing season for arayu (dorado) is officially on. Prized dorado hanging out to be dried under the sun would then be abundant and a norm in the area. The entire cycle of fishing and harvesting for dorado continues until May. You can get to DIURA FISHING VILLAGE by tricycle with a travel time of 10 minutes. 

Outside the fishing festival, you can view the Madi Bay, Pacific Ocean, and Mount Iraya from afar. A nearby spring called Rakuh-a-idi Spring (Spring of Youth / Fountain of Youth) can also be reached with a 30-minute trek. As a natural spring pool that overlooks the beach and the scenic Mount Iraya, it has become a place of relaxation and solace for locals and travelers.
