Batan Island, the Philippines

A lovely lighthouse view I received from dear Maerose last year. I really like that car, too, it's so colourful!

Batan island is the main island of the Batanes Province in the northern Philippines, part of the Batanes Islands group and the Luzon Volcanic Arc. It is home to the provincial capital Basco. The island is known chiefly for Mount Iraya. This lighthouse is located in Naidi Hills. Aside from serving as a lighthouse to navigators, fishermen, seafarers and other travellers, this structure which is equivalent in height to a 6 storey building is also a tourist attraction. Its viewing deck at the 5th level is the perfect location for viewing the whole Batanes Island.
