Beautiful landscape for walking, and there is a little souvenir shop with very affordable gifts. Although not part of the Batanes Islands, Anguib Beach is much to close not to visit. It's right on the northern coast of the Cagayan Province, and they it the "Boracay of the north" due to it's amazing clear water and white sand!
