Although a bit far from Basco, the long trip was well worth it. Being in Marlboro Hills make you feel like you are in the edge of the Philippines a perfect combination of ocean and hill views. Truly one of the most beautiful sites in the Philippines.

Awesome 180-degree views of the mountains and the sea from this place. This was actually a stop over for lunch for us - we just sat and enjoyed the views while waiting for lunch to be prepared. Great jump shot opportunities too!

A must visit destination. Located in Mahatao, next town after Basco. A nice venue for landscape photography, can do kite flying and and lot of jumptology...:D Having a lunch here would be perfect while in a background of green wide pasture. www.discoverbatanes.com

This is not to miss place to visit in Batanes. The original name is Rakuh A Payaman, only tourists call it Marlboro Hills. The sceneries were really beautiful. Take lots of pictures of course. But I would recommend spending a bit of time to relax here, sit on the grass and just enjoy the views and the fresh Batanes air.... More
