5 Stunning Lighthouses to Visit in Batanes

The northernmost province has some of the most beautiful lighthouses in the country.

Unlike Basco Lighthouse, Tayid Lighthouse is less accessible due to its remote location up a steep hill. Visits here are usually included in the South Batan island tours. From the top of the lighthouse, you can get a 360-degree view of Mt. Iraya, West Philippine Sea, and the town of Mahatao. You can get a dramatic view of this lighthouse from afar from the main viewing point of Racuh a Payaman (Marlboro Country) and Diura Fishing Village.
