The view from Marlboro Hills is quintessentially Batanes. It's what Batanes is famous for! It's where all the elements can be captured in one frame: the water, rolling land and the clear blue sky. Simply beautiful.

Simply picturesque. Leave it all to your senses, and let your imagination do the rest. Every second must cherished and shouldn't be taken for granted. The touch of the wind will your soul. Every hue will play a significant part to your sanity, and this will leave a mark to your memories. Age doesn't matter, as long you have the... More

The view here is amazing. Panoramic in all possible angles. You can just stare blankly and let your thoughts float. It's a feast to the eyes. Take time to indulge and breathe. This is where heaven meets earth.

From the makeshift restaurant at the entrance, I didn't imagine how marvelous the sight was going to be. The small dwelling kind of obscured the whole view. If it didn't function as the only store where you could buy refreshments, I would have said to do away with it. But Marlboro Hills is usually one of the last stops in... More

One of the places in Batanes with a scenic view. Perfect for selfie, photo op, running, emo moment, me time, relaxation. Perfect for eveything. :-)

The sight of Mt. Iraya completed the picturesque... I love the wind, the hills, the ocean view... Great for photo ops or simply selfie pic :)

While it is literally a big pastureland with livestock actually grazing on it, Racuh A Payaman is, at the same time, something straight out of the movies. Standing on the vast hillsides, taking in the view of Mt. Iraya and the Pacific, and feeling the fresh, cold wind on our faces was an unforgettable experience.

We biked around the Marlboro Hills and it is really majestic. The place is just so awesome. This is a bit far from basco, and would need endurance.

The inner child in me was unleashed in Marlboro country. The views were amazing! Me and my bestfriend ran to the farthest hill we could reach, and chased the carabaos like kids. One could just sit there for half an hour, gaze at the views, and feel relaxed. Truly a worthwhile visit. The hilly terrain is a pastureland of the... More

Racuh Apayaman, or more commonly called Marlboro Country, has one of the best views of Batanes. You can go here to have lunch (just set it up in advance with your guide or find someone in Basco City who can if you don't have a guide), and while lunch is being set up, go, explore, and have fun just being...
