The Lighthouses of Batanes #1 On Your Travel Bucket List.

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

There are three lighthouses in Batanes. One of these is the Basco lighthouse, which was inaugurated in 2003 and the first to be installed in the province. It is located in Naidi Hills, where one can see the views of the West Philippines Sea and the Basco town proper. 

Sabtang and Mahatao are the two other lighthouses, and all of them are considered tourist attractions in the province. It was also the previous location of American telegraph facilities linking Batanes to the central government until it got demolished due to the bombing of the Japanese Imperial Army in the beginning of World War II. 

The observation deck is ideal for viewing the whole of Batan Island from end to end, including Mount Iraya. Sabtang Island in the south of Basco can also be seen, as well as Itbayat Island, located in the north. 

The coastline’s rich blues and greens glitter in the sun like jewels, also creating a soothing music of waves crashing on the shore. Tranquillity at its finest!
