Batanes: Summer in Batanes is from June to August

While the rains begin pouring down on the rest of the Philippines, spring is giving way to summer in Batanes. Yes, it's summer in Batanes. In fact, locals say that summer in Batanes is from June to August.

While there may be some occasional rains, one must not forget that Batanes has four seasons due to its close proximity to the temperate region. In fact, it's closer to Taiwan than it is to the rest of the Philippines.

Don't be discouraged by rainy Manila because now is the best time to visit Batanes! We were just there last week. And I'll be talking about it in the next few days. Rich in heritage, scenic views and beautiful beaches, Batanes is a must visit for anyone. Book your trip now at or call SEAIR Reservations at (02) 8490100.

  1. Hello Ivan. Long-time lurker here.

    I'm going to be visiting family in Manila next February or March for a few weeks.

    I am DYING to go to Batanes. But I'm a little skeptical of the weather then. Does anyone have info on what Batanes is like in Feb/March? Is it cold and rainy? I might still go if it's less than ideal, but I could also push my trip back a little if necessary, so I just want to know what to expect.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Batanes is top of my list for where next to visit in the Philippines.

  2. February is cold. March is when spring starts :D

    So it's perfect!

    I would really love to see Batanes in the near future. Experience it's one-of-a-kind tradition and taste delectable local Batanes cuisines.
    I've seen one time in a television show wherein they feature Batanes, it houses amazing landmarks and scenic tourist destinations. The real highlight of this picturesque region is its peaceful environment wherein there are zero crime rates which is totally spectacular that you can really enjoy your Batanes escapade.
    I am hoping to step in this quaint and sleepy province of northernmost region of the Philippines.
