Beached in Batanes

If you love beaches, especially the white sand kind, you'll love Nakabuang Beach on Sabtang Island. Relatively desserted and isolated except for the occasional local fisherman, it boasts of a coral cave, a natural arch and limestone formations that lookout to the sea, with a view of Batan. A cove lets one swim without fear of being carried out to the Balintang Channel.  I've seen my fair share of the Nakabuang arch images so took this one on top of a hill.

arlene, small world nga talaga. i left a comment in chico's blog in any case baka lang he may remember me way back when we were teammates in a badminton tourney quite a long time ago, hehehe. nice takes ni lennie sa batanes :-)

hi travis. thanks for dropping by. hope everything's a-ok from your side of the world. batanes is one of my most favorite places here in the philippines and i'm only too happy to share it with my readers, hopefully, they'll be inspired to put it in their must-visit places.
