Small house beside lighthouse on Naidi Hills in Basco.
At night, this seemingly abandoned building near the lighthouse transforms into a restaurant for tourists. Reservation is required.
Bicycles are a common way to get around in Batanes.
Blue on white is just perfect!

You can stay in a traditional house when in Sabtang Island.

I don’t mind. Blue is my favorite color. Another reason to love these northern Philippine islands.
