Batanes Sabtang Island Private Day Tour with Lunch & Transfers | Morong Beach & Nakabuang Arch
Explore the idyllic Sabtang Island in Batanes when you book this day tour. This trip is perfect for first-time visitors as it will show you there is more to Batanes than its main island. This tour includes private transfers, DOT-accredited tour guide, complimentary lunch, environmental and registration fees, and pick-up and drop-off from within Basco town proper and Chanarian.
As you will be walking a lot during this trip, it's best to wear comfortable running shoes for the day. If you are visiting from March to June, wear light and comfortable clothing. Meanwhile, pack waterproof clothes if you are traveling from July to November and warm clothing for December to February.
Your guide will fetch you from your accommodation at 5 in the morning, then lead you to the seaport. From there, you will hop on a boat and sail to Sabtang Island. When you arrive, you will transfer to another vehicle and make your way to your first stop of the day, the San Vicente Ferrer Church. This church is recognized as a National Historical Landmark and features a slightly Baroque design, mainly seen in its retablo.
Next, you will head to the Savidug Stone Houses. These traditional homes are maintained by the Ivatans, the indigenous people of Batanes, and are a great example of how they keep their heritage alive. Afterward, you will travel to the Tinyan Viewpoint. Here, you will find a breathtaking view of verdant rolling hills and a stunning beach called Chamantad Cove.
You will also visit Chavayan Stone Houses before stopping by the Santa Rosa de Lima Chapel. This small church is best known for being the only chapel in the province that still uses cogon grass for its roofing. Following your time here, you will head back to Sinakan Centro to drop by Morong Beach. This unspoiled hideaway boasts powdery white sand, clear waters, and a picturesque rock formation called the Nakabuang Arch. Finally, you will wrap up your tour with a delicious lunch.
