TOP PLACES TO VISIT IN SOUTH BATAN
Chawa View Deck
First stop of the day. A very stunning view to start our South Batan tour. The Chawa view deck has this little grotto at the Top where you can sit, relax and enjoy the view. You can also take a hundred of steps down to see a small coast at the bottom.
Tayid Light House
As you all know, Batanes is full of lighthouse and one of their famous lighthouse in town is the Tayid. The architecture of the lighthouse is a little bit different because of it’s hexagonal body shape.
The lighthouse also have their little souvenir shop, honesty is the best policy here as well, you just be honest and put your payments on the respective box!
Rakuh-A-Payaman a.k.a. Marlboro Hills
This is one of the highlights and remarkable tourist spot in Batanes. It is the like a large pastureland of the Mahatao, Batanes. This place is definitely relaxing and amazing. What-a-view!
I am pretty sure you don’t want to leave this paradise once you’ve set your foot in this ultra-greenish land of Batanes. This place definitely captures my heart all throughout the trip!

This place can prove how honest the Ivatan’s is. Welcome to the infamous Honesty Coffee Shop. The shop is nice and have a lot of foods for pasalubong and some souvenirs. It doesn’t have a store keeper, you just need to list down the things you’ll be buying and put your payment in the box provided. Also, get your own change if you have. Unique right?
House of Dakay
This is known as one of the oldest stone Houses in Batanes. It was built way back in 1887. The house was said to be pass down to Jose Dakay from his Aunt. This is also one of the five houses that stood strong and survived the killer earth quake that struck Batanes way back in 1918.
The owner now is very friendly and even offer us to take a picture with the traditional clothes of Ivatan.
Beach at last! Homoron White Beach
This is our last stop before we end the tour. We drop by the Homoron Beach, this beach has the friendliest waves so the tourists and people can enjoy swimming!
