Basco, the gateway to the northernmost province in the Philippines, is also the capital of Batanes. Located in Batan Island, Basco is politically divided into six barangays—Ihubok II (Kayvaluganan), Ihubok I (Kaychanarianan), San Antonio, San Joaquin, Chanarian, Kayhuvokan, making it the largest municipality in the island in terms of population and land area.


Travel agencies offer half-day tours to most of the major attractions in Basco (North Batan). But I'm wondering how these travel agencies can squeeze so much spots in just half a day as there are too many of them.


Do you think a half-day tour is enough to see and appreciate these amazing Basco attractions?
