Sabtang is an island municipality at the south of Batanes. It is part of an island group, together with two uninhabited islands, Ivuhos and Dequey. However, this town is far from uninhabited as it has six barangays and a fair amount of tourists.
The primary mode of transportation between ports is a small but sturdy boat called the faluwa. Get ready for some sea sickness, if you’re prone to it. Most locals get around the island itself via tricycle and pedicab.
There is so much to see in Sabtang, in terms of natural and architectural wonders. There is also no shortage of seafood, such as lobster and crab. There’s no need to go to a fancy restaurant for these delicacies while you’re here!
Morong Beach is an unspoilt paradise with powdery sand and endless blue waters. There are also a number of natural rock formations in Morong Beach, such as the iconic Nakabuang Arch.
For that picture-perfect vacation photo, visit the breathtaking Chamantad-Tinyan Viewpoint. It has both jagged and sloping land formations that frame Chamantad Cove.
Houses in Batanes are mostly built with stone, in an architectural style that is characteristic of the place. This is because it was necessary, as the place is rather prone to calamity. You can see this in the Ivatan villages of Chavayan and Savidug, You can also see Mission-style churches like the San Vicente Ferrer Church.
One of the three lighthouses of Batanes is right here in Sabtang, overlooking the Balintang Channel.
