Our tour of the northern section of Batan Island started with a lunch at a nearby restaurant. The tour van brought us to Octagon Bed and Dine Lodge which is just a few meters from where we’re staying (Marfel’s Lodge – Annex). The restaurant is an eight-sided hall adorned with wood carvings, some depicting the Ivatan way of life. The restaurant has a viewing deck which offers a great view of the Basco Jetty, the lighthouse at Naidi Hills, and the town proper. It also offers a perfect view of the the Batanes sunset.
Octagon Restaurant serve popular Filipino dishes. It is open to serve breakfast and dinner as well.
