One of the three lighthouse in Batanes. You can also rent Vakul, a headgear worn by Ivatans for protection against sun and rain. Every corner in this place is just amazing, not to mention that it is Instagramable as well!

This is a very good place to ponder especially if you are a solo traveller and loves to watch the stars or just stare at the night sky. The place is very solemn and would make you think things through. Also if you love astrophotography...More

The Basco Lighthouse offers a great view of the West Philippine Sea. You can go inside and climb to the top of the lighthouse for a better, wider view. Perfect location to view the sunset.

A nice place to view the sunsets. Perfect for prenup pictorials. The red and white contrasting the clear cloudy skies is ideal for photographers. Romantics should not miss this place, not only it is very near to city proper of Basco, but also visible if...More
