basco-lighthouseBasco Lighthouse is located in the town of Basco in the province of Batanes. Perched on a hill called Naidi, the place offers one of the most picturesque sites in the island of Batan. Naidi is an old sitio from the Ivatan words, “Na” which means past and “Idi” meaning settlement. The hills affords a spectacular panoramic view of Baluarte Bay, Basco town, Mount Iraya and the rolling hills of Batan Island. The lighthouse can easily be reached by foot via a 1.2 kilometer hike from the Port of Basco.
The lighthouse which was first lit in 2003 is made of reinforced concrete and conical in shape. Visitors can climb it through a spiral staircase inside the lighthouse. A viewing deck on the fifth floor affords tourists and visitors a 360-degree view of the surroundings.
