Basco Lighthouse is a lighthouse in the town of Basco in Batanes, the northernmost province in the Philippines. Located in Naidi Hills in Barangay San Antonio, the lush green hills and the open sea provide a beautiful backdrop for the lighthouse. The place can easily be reached by a 1.2-km hike from the Port of Basco.

In continuation of my post from last December here from a trip made last June here are the breathtaking sights to behold in North Batan. I didn't even know that it's possible to squeeze both in a day!!! It was only around 2PM and Kuya Dale just casually brought up the idea since he knew I only have a day left. Thankfully, always girl scout ready, I brought a big bag for all my outfit changes. Ahaha!!!
Batanes, the smallest province of the Philippines, lies at the northernmost tip of the country about 190 kilometers south of Taiwan. Out of the 10 islands included in the Batanes group of islands, only 3 are inhabited, Batan, Sabtang and Itbayat. The smaller islets are Dequey, Siayan, Mabudis, Ibuhos, Diogo, North Island, and Y'ami. Because of its cool and windy weather, Batanes is also referred to as the Home of the Winds. It is also the place where the Pacific Ocean meets the West Philippine Sea so the water current is usually rough.
The breathtaking scenes created entirely by nature will leave you in awe. Indeed Gods amazing creation

Batanes is considered the ultimate destination in the Philippines according to locals. We couldn't get enough of his incomparable beauty that this is actually our third Batanes blog review. Our previous DIY travel guides to Batanes are all designed for couples so this time we'll feature one brave soul who traveled to Batanes alone. Her name is April Esteban. She has given me the blessing to share her photos, tips, contact persons and everything you need to know to help you prepare that trip there.
I didnt like the idea of returning to Batanes. At least, not in the beginning.
Its not because I did not enjoy my previous trip. Quite the contrary. Batanes has always been atop my list of dream Philippine destinations, and when I was finally able to set foot in it in 2014, it gave me much more than I imagined. Site after site, day after day, Batanes blew my mind and snatched my heart. Perfect was a word I had never used to describe a journey, but thats exactly what it was. It was perfect. I was afraid that a second trip would ruin all my precious, flawless memories of it.
