Taking risks on tours was never my thing. I just want to have fun and see the beauty of nature. But not with Sabtang. We literally took the risk. We were told that we can catch the boat to the Island on our last day in Batanes. The group was excited and was ready to take on the ocean.

Going there was a bit of a struggle already. The waves were deceiving. It was calm all throughout our way to the port. But when the boat was in the middle of the sea, we literally shouted because of the big waves. The waves were big enough to wash us out.

But it was all worthit. Upon arriving, we were greeted by Kuya Jun. He was the brother of our driver back in Basco, and he offered his services to guide us through. We rode his pick up and went on discovering more about Sabtang. Out of the 6 places we could visit, we went to see 4. We walked our way in exploring Savidug Village, met weavers and took some awesome shots at some Sinadumparan houses. Our second stop was at the magnificent Tinyan Viewpoint. My partner had a sprain a few days back and i was not wearing my walking shoes as well, so I had to miss the view at the end of the viewpoint. We then proceeded to check some Pacific Ocean view to Chavayan Beach then to our last stop/lunch at Morong Beach. The food at the beach was OK, but it could have been better. Surprisingly, I found the seaweed soup delicious. It tasted like tinola, haha!

After a few walks at the beach, it was time for us to catch the last trip back to Ivana port. It was a bit cloudy already and I was seriously scared to see the waves. Unfortunately, while in the middle of the trip, we had some "situation". TMI, but it really felt like my stomach was in the middle of my throat. It was not a good ride. AT ALL.

But, all in all, the experience was unforgettable. I would still want to visit and possibly stay the night in Sabtang. Most of the blogs I read recommends to spend a night in the Island for full experience. Having that once in a lifetime chance to be one with the big waves for 20 minutes, seeing the Pacific Ocean in full force and appreciate life in less than 5 hours can never be replaced. I would do it again.
