pagasa2The search for the best vista in Batanes doesn’t stop. Another good contender is the PAGASA Weather Station in Tukun.

Perched atop a hill, it allows a 360-degree view of the surrounding landscape which is composed of Mt. Iraya, the sharp cliffs by the beach, and the rolling hills gridded by a web of hedgerows called liveng, used to shield the crops from strong winds. Farther into the horizon is Dinem Island and the faint silhoutte behind it is Itbayat, one of the only three inhabited islands of Batanes.
