On our third day in Batanes, we spent one whole day doing the South Batan Tour. From the homestay, we passed by Paderes, a long wall along the road which is also the surname of the architect who built this. There was an ongoing installation of street lights that time which was proof of the continuous development of the area to cater to the growing tourism.
Our first stop was the Chawa view deck which has the oldest uplifted coral. According to our guide, Chawa came from “kawa”, meaning rock. It’s like a viewing deck built beside this gorgeous coral formation. Even if it’s our third day already, we were still in awe with Batanes. We admired how the turquoise sea water splashed into the corals below and how the sea seems to have a lot of different blue and green colors.
