This is one of the lighthouses built in Batanes around the year 2000 to guide seafarers safely to the shore. While recent in construction, it has become one of the popular landmarks of Batanes, specifically of Basco in Batan Island where it is located. You can climb its 83-step stairs right up to the top and enjoy the scenic view of the surrounding sea and Naidi Hills. On the ground floor there's a small room that serves like a mini-museum and close to the lighthouse is a big signage saying "I ♡ Batanes" great for photo shoots.

It's a must-visit place when you're in Batanes. Everything is just breathtaking when you're in the province, or I am just being biased because it's my favorite place in PH.

It's sunny and windy when I was there so it was perfect, as you can see on the pics as well. I wanted to wait for the sunset but my friends were adamant that we go to the next destination of our itinerary.

Visited Batanes last December 2019 right after a typhoon passed. Definitely better than advertised! Will surely visit it again. Not just the lighthouse but the whole archipelago. I recommend taking at least 4 days to visit this beautiful place so you can take in all the views and not rush from one place to another.

I can never leave this tourist spot without climbing up the tower of this lighthouse. The view up there is just majestic. You can see the port and the vast ocean, We came here near sundown and we were just so glad coz we are able to see a very beautiful sunset.

The lighthouse sits atop the Naidi hills overlooking Basco bay. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse and wonder at the view of Mount Iraya, Basco bay, Basco town proper, you can see the airport from here even if it's in the opposite end of the town. Great place to take pictures especially during sunset.
