Sabtang Lighthouse

Sabtang Lighthouse, the majestic, towering figure that welcomes tourists to Sabtang Island, is one of Batanes’ major lighthouse, a beacon that guides seafarers through the rough waters of the Pacific Ocean and the West Philippine Sea.

Sabtang Lighthouse, a structure located near the edge of a cliff beside San Vicente Port, is the first structure you will see when you get to the famous destination. This man-made attraction gives off an organic, straight-out-of-the-movies vibe thanks to its rubble masonry finish that runs up to its viewing deck, a design that sets it apart from the two other lighthouses. The view from the top — crashing waves, seemingly endless pristine, clear blue waters, verdant green majesty of the surrounding islands — is worth the rough trip.



Sabtang Lighthouse is located near San Vicente Port, Sabtang Island, Batanes.
