Silversea Expedition Cruises To Batan Island

Batan Island

Batanes, the country’s northern most and smallest province in the Cagayan region, is the most sought-after tourism frontier destination located at the confluence of the West Philippine Sea and Pacific Ocean. It has been declared as a protected landscape and seascape because of its rare flora and fauna, undulating terrain, limestone cliffs and the panoramic sceneries and clear waters. There are 10 islands, but only three are inhabited. The province is home to the famous indigenous people of Batanes, the Ivatans, who are nationally acclaimed as the True Insulares. View more

The Ivatans are of Malay stock, tracing their roots to early immigrants from Formosa, Taiwan as well as Spaniards, who came to the island in the 16th century. Being an insular people, the Ivatans have kept the purity of their gene pool through time. These tiny dots are so isolated from the rest of the archipelago enabling them to preserve much of its natural beauty & culture.  Batanes is famous because of its rolling hills & pasture lands decked with cattle. It offers refreshing treat for those who love the view of expansive greens and blues, tranquil farm life and abundance of silence. The narrow streets of the villages are still lined with traditional houses built of coral and limestone walls, cogon roofs and hardwood floors and windows.  The view from the lighthouse is breathtaking. Unique to the area are the ‘Honesty Stores’ – unmanned shops with refreshments. The owner relies on the honesty of its customers to pay for goods taken from the store. These shops showcase the Ivatan’s honesty.
