    Batanes Hotels

    "Want to escape to a green wonderland up north? Batanes has many amazing beaches like the Chadpidan Beach, Nakabuang Beach, and Morong Beach. Don’t miss the chance to roll down the hills in the island’s own “Marlboro Country,” the Racuh A Payaman, for a breathtaking view of vast pasture lands with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. A visit to its old villages, like Savidug and Chavayan in Sabtang, to see their stone houses is a must."

    At A Glance

    Basco Batanes

    An archipelago province in the northernmost region of the Philippines, Batanes is one of the must-see places in the country.

    How to Go

    By plane

    Only Philippine Airlines and Skyjet are the two major airlines that fly directy towards Basco, Batanes from Manila. Small airlines such as Wakay Air and Sky Pasada now also fly to Batanes daily. Tickets to Batanes are not on the affordable side, but if you’re lucky you can get them for cheap when the airlines have a seat sale.

    By boat/ferry

    If you have a lot of time in your hands, you can take a ferry to Batanes from Ilocos Norte. The trip takes 18 hours from Currimao, Ilocos Norte to Basco, Batanes. However, this option is not reliable since trips usually get cancelled due bad weather or rough waters.

    By land transportation

    There are no means to get to Batanes by land, but you can drive or take a bus to Currimao, Ilocos Norte and take the ferry from there. You can also drive to Tuguegarao where you can fly from there with Sky Pasada or North Sky.

     

    Getting Around

    You can hire a tricycle to take you around the island in each of the inhabited islands. For P 1,000 to P 1,350 the tricycle driver will take you to all the tourist destinations on the island, serve as your tour guide, and will even take your photos for you. Most tours will require walking and hiking so make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes.

    You can also rent a bicycle for P300 to P600 per day to bike around town for some DIY tour or just to enjoy the fresh air of Batanes.

    Travel Tips

    • Take note of the weather at different times of the year and book your vacation accordingly. The best time of the year to visit is in the summer (March to May) before the monsoon rains come in. Visit from December to February if you want to experience winter in Batanes.

    • Bring snacks and other small items that might not be immediately available or affordable on the island. Make sure to bring cash in small bills to avoid any hassle. Most of the establishments only accept cash payments, and there is only one ATM machine, which is in Basco.

    • If you’re a solo backpacker, join tours to make new friends with other travelers. Being part of a group in a tour will also mean less expenses for you since you’ll be splitting everything with the group.
