Smallest in population and smallest in land area, the Batanes will transport you to a different world full of simple pleasures and raw nature. Situated in the northernmost region of the Philippines, the Batanes is comprised of 10 luscious islands with a total of 84.56 square miles waiting to be explored.
The Batanes Islands are almost as close to Taiwan as they are to Luzon with Taiwanese radio stations only a knob-turn away. Its 10 tiny islands are in common possession of craggy cliffs pummelled at the feet by angry waves, emerald hills perfectly manicured by a legion of cows, and boxy, cobblestone-walled houses topped by cogon-thatched roofs.
The beauty of Batanes is so overwhelming that it cannot truly be expressed in words. The beaches, lagoons, caves, and islands will leave you speechless. The culture here is just as exquisite, running at a much slower pace than the rest of the world. Villages, cafes, homestays…everything here is personal.
