Port of Ivana is a port located in Batan Island, in the northern Philippines, in the municipality of Ivana.
Batan Island is the nearest port to the island of Sabtang for approximately 4.5 kilometers (2.8 miles). Both local people and tourists are frequented in order to travel from and to the port.
Ivana Port is one of four ports on the island of Batan, the other three being Basco, Mahatao, and Uyugan Port.
In the province of Batanes in the Philippine Cagayan Valley (Region II), Ivana is officially the municipality of Ivana (Tagalog: Bayan ng Ivana; Ilokano: Ili ti Ivana). It has a population of 1,327, according to the 2015 census.
Ivana is alongside Basco and Marigatao one of the three largest towns in Batanes in the first half of the 19th century. In the last 18th century a mission was opened with a successful evangelization, mainly as a result of the baptism of seven of the nine Ivana directors.
In 1789, the Third Governor of Batanes was Joaquin del Castillo. Measures were established to ensure that, through obedience to the governor as king's representative, all natives, including the unbaptized, respect and obey the law. The uprising was then brought about by Chivunao of Ivana, an 'evil and lawless man' who persuaded his leaders to revolt against the regime. His failed efforts led him to organize a rebellion in Itbud, where the cannons of Spain forced the rebels to give up.
Ivana is divided into four barangays politically. In 1955, San Vicente was raised to a district. It consists of Radiwan, Salagao, San Vicente, and Tuhel.
