Mostly undisturbed and unspoiled, Sabtang Island has lots of natural attractions guaranteed to satisfy the most sophisticated nature lovers. It has intermittent white sand beaches with steep mountains and deep canyons with small level areas sporadically found along the coastline. Among the things to experience at Sabtang Island are the Faluwa Ride, the traditional Ivatan stone houses, the Ivatans, Morong Beach (Nakabuang Beach), the Chamantad-Tinyan Viewpoint, the Mayahaw Arch, Savidug Village, the Chavayan Village, the Sabtang Lighthouse, the San Vicente Ferrer Church. Sabtang is accessible by 30-minute motorized boat called the “faluwa” from Radiwan Port in Ivana. The faluwa vessels do not have the traditional outriggers, or “katig” and are built to withstand the impact of stronger waves of the Balintang Channel, where the Pacific Ocean meets the South China Sea. Sabtang Island is also the take off point for Ivuhos Island from Barangay Nakanmuan.
