Batanes: The Philippines’ Hidden Beauty

It's More Fun in the Philippines May 16, 2014

batanesThe Philippines is known with its beautiful sceneries. But unbeknownst to some Filipinos, an astounding paradise nestles on the north-eastern part of the archipelago, Batanes.

The beautiful island-province of Batanes is situated in the region of Cagayan Valley. Notwithstanding with the fact that it is the smallest province in the Philippines, its green meadows, verdant hills and crystal-clear beaches would make someone realize how blessed the Philippines is.

In the eastern part of Batanes lies the inviting Valugan Boulder Beach. It is a heaven in disguise with its embracing breeze and waves that are melodies to one’s exhausted ears. This beach differs from the others because it has jab-sized boulders instead of tired white sand. Who’d have thought the tragic eruption of Mt. Iraya would create this wonderful rock arrangement?

If someone seeks for an open place to shout out all his aspirations, Vayang Rolling Hills maybe the best place. One could feel the cordiality of the nature with its verdant grasses, fine landscapes and its spectacular varying slopes. Below the hills is a herd of cows that adds up a more tranquil provincial ambiance.

Apart from the rolling hills and beaches, Batanes also gives a stunning transition to the past. The island-province offers several vestiges from both Spanish and Japanese era. Some of them are the sturdy Old Spanish Bridge that was meant for an easier access to the church and the Japanese Tunnel dug by ancient Ivatan hostages for the Japanese.

The Mt. Carmel Chapel in Tukon, Batanes entices every Catholic tourist as it boasts its modern Ivatan architecture. Unlike the traditional houses built with cogon, facades and walls are made with bricks and stones. The ceiling of the church also showcases beautiful images of famous Christian saints.

Truly beauty cannot be seen in just a glance. Sometimes, it is in the most hidden part. Batanes proves that no matter how many sails it is from the mainland, it still possesses a magnificent exquisiteness in which every Filipino can be proud of.
