    An easy walk from parking to the Lighthouse and up to the top, for a very nice view of the town and bay. It is well kept and clean. Easily accessed by mope or trike.  more »

    We rented bikes from a local store on our first day and pedalled up from town of Basco up to the lighthouse . It was exhausting but worth it . Beautiful 360 degree view of Basco Batanes .  more »
