As if the views along the drive out to the Marlboro hills isn't stunning enough, this place will take your breath away! Really fun on a windy day, you can lean into the wind and not fall down!

"The hills are alive, with the sound of music!!!!" From the lines of an old classic movie, this line is most apt when viewing the Racuh-a-payaman, also known as the Marlboro Country of Batanes. From the viewpoint, you could see the surrounding hills, filled with life, where animals are grazing contentedly. Beyond that is a breathtaking view of the sea... More

I was so amazed with the view. The place is so lovely. You can lay down, kiss the grass, run and slide! Ofcourse, if you want to shout, relieve the heavy thing in your chest, go on! The landscape are similar to the well known sheep yard in New Zealand. It feels like your in the other side of the... More

If you love sitting on one of the seemingly endless hills of green grass with cool winds blowing on a sunny day for views of the calm sea and the horizon awaiting the sunset, or simply lying down looking to clear blue skies above while tamed mares slowly walk around you, this is the place to be in! Definitely a... More

This is where the Little Ireland description of Batanes comes from with the rolling hills and lush green grass with cows grazing on the hillside giving it that peaceful pastoral image. It faces the Pacific Ocean and has tremendous views of the rock formations along the coast. It is very windy up there so you might want to bring a... More

Enjoy this vast scenic greenery! There are horses around the area that's why it's called Marlboro Hills. It can get very hot during summer season. Highly Recommended.

This is my favorite in Batanes. The wind is strong but you can just sit back and relax and enjoy the view. Any side of this place is picture perfect.

It's really a different experince when you're actually there. The view was amazing! It was just really cold & windy but it didn't make us enjoy the view less. We stayed there, took pictures & just sat & enjoyed everything!

What has been baptized as "Marloboro Hills/Country" is actually Racuh-a-Payaman. There are beautiful views anywhere you look. Available as a site for wedding receptions. I hada pre-booked lunch there in a kubo amidst the rain and gusty wind. It was a very unusual experience!
