1. Batanes Island

The beauty of Batanes is so overwhelming that it cannot truly be expressed in words. The beaches, lagoons, caves, and islands will leave you speechless. The culture here is just as exquisite, running at a much slower pace than the rest of the world. Villages, cafes, homestays…everything here is personal.

 

Famed as the “New Zealand” of the Philippines with the smallest population and smallest land area, the Batanes will transport you to a different world full of simple pleasures and raw nature. Situated in the northernmost region of the Philippines, the Batanes is comprised of 10 luscious islands with a total of 84.56 square miles waiting to be explored. Typically, 3 to 4 days would suffice for you to stay and see everything the island has to offer.

How much: Round-trip tickets from MNL to Basco (Average) - $107-$143
