Experience the charm of South Batan, Batanes on this private day tour complete with private transfers, hotel pick-up and drop-off, Protected Area Management Board (PAMB) fees, registration fees, complimentary lunch, and the services of a DOT-accredited tour guide. If you wish to discover why the southern part of Batanes is often visited by nature enthusiasts, then this tour is for you.

You will be picked up from your accommodations in Batanes and taken to your first stop, Chawa View Deck. The tourist site has a stairway that descends to the beach below it and is located along a steep mountainside. Before proceeding to your next destination, the Mahatao Shelter Port, where the majority of the people's boats are protected from the ferocious waves, be sure to take pictures of the gorgeous view of the West Philippine Sea and West Batan cliffs. 

After having a complimentary lunch, you will make your way to Marlboro Country, also known as Racuh-a-Payaman. It is a well-known picturesque area in Batanes. The coastline and the landscape with cattle together are breathtaking.

Witness the beauty of Ivana Lighthouse next. Located in the municipality of Ivana, this lighthouse is the newest lighthouse in Batanes. After taking photos, you will visit the House of Dakay. The House of Dakay is the oldest stone house in Batanes, having been built in 1887.

You will also go to the Honesty Coffee Shop in Ivana, another distinctive South Batan attraction. Customers may acquire everything they need from this unmanned store and then simply put their payment in the appropriate boxes.

Motchong Viewpoint, a magnificently clear and lush viewpoint in Uyugan that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, is your next stop. The famous "BLOW UR HORN" road sign can be spotted nearby at Alapad Pass. It is nearby Alapad Hills and Rock Formation, your last stop for the day. This landmark provides a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and unique rock formations.
