Batanes is one of the beautiful provinces found in the Philippines. It is also known as the “Home of the Winds”. Batanes is the northernmost and the smallest province in the country. It encompasses ten chief islands and three of it are occupied. Basco is the capital of Batanes.

Batanes is home to the Ivatans who are much admired as the “True Insulares”. Ivatan Tribe is the first settler in this province. They came from Formosa which is known as Taiwan today. They have kept the purity of their culture and traditions through the years.

Batanes is also popular for dried fish, the main product of the province. Handicrafts such as native hats and fans are products of export quality. Sugarcane or “Palek” are widely sold in the islands.

The strong winds blowing along the costline and the historic marks that can be found in the province are the reasons why the area is visited by tourists.
