A place offering a good view of The mountins and ocean and very picturesque during sunset. Very serene place. Guides told me they can also cater receptions here.

You should definitely visit this before sunset. I went here on a day tour and I was unsatisfied because it was cloudy and it rained. After napping, I went here alone for a short hike. It was worth it. Mt. Iraya was clear and the...More

This is one of my fave stop. The view is amazing and truly breathtaking. Though we stayed for only a couple of minutes. I enjoyed it.

This is one of the several lighthouses on the island, very quaint and picturesque. Truly a photographer's dream background.

From memory this is the lighthouse and hills visible from town.If you're feeling fit then you can walk it but we opted for a tricycle ride which probably took 15mins.or so.Sunset is perfect.

beautiful place! this is included in the fixed north batan tour(usually the last stop). There's a lighthouse that is open to the public. This is just 7-10minute walk away from the town.

This lighthouse requires quite a travel but everything is so accessible in Batanes, and most of the roads are paved. One cannot go into the lighthouse, but the view of the mountainside and the sea is simply glorious.

No entrance fee is needed. Going up the lighthouse will only require name registration for every tourist visiting the place.
