When I peeked out the window, I was bombarded with an endless succession of postcard-worthy images. I caught a glimpse of the rocky beaches, the verdant rolling hills, and the sapphire seas sending waves one after another. We had not yet landed but I felt like I had seen more than enough beauty, but I couldn’t get enough of it. My excitement grew even stronger when we landed, of course.
Batanes is a destination that is beautiful from any angle. But it is always special to experience it with a bird’s eye view. I was not able to record what I had seen from the plane, but thankfully, someone took a video of this stunning province using a drone.
In this video by Dex Maligang of Dex Creative Photography, many of Batanes’s iconic destinations were captured from the air. This includes the rolling hills of Vayang, the ferocious waters of Valugan Boulder Beach, and the natural arch formation in Morong. Give it a watch below.
