Sturdy Walking Sandals!
Luggage and bags: Don't exceed the baggage allowance of 10kg, and hand carry allowance of 3kg. Tripods must be checked in.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I suggest to search for weather forecast in the net, days prior to going to Batanes so you will know what kind of gear you will bring. A must in your packing list is a sturdy, walking, non slippery shoes or sandals, because you will do walking climbing uphill and down hill most of the time.
Miscellaneous: And of course, don't forget to bring sunblock unless you want to get sunburned.Related to:

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Old rubber shoes - i used my damaged zara shoes here i though i can never use that after it was damaged but its good that i have used that here.......you need to bring an old shoe for hiking and slipper during the tour in Sabtang......
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Try to bring diatabs...trust me...you will have the whole day touring every part of Batanes.........toilets from one destination to the next destination are very far....so if you are feeling not good before joining the tour early in the morning.....take the diatabs...hahahahhaa
Miscellaneous: Put on those colorful and comfy clothes on..................... when you are travelling in the months of February to march.......it looks good on photos i just noticed hhahahahahaaaaha
light jacket or sweater
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We went there 3rd wk of March 2008 and it was windy in Batanes. My friend got colds on our fourth day, as she wore shorts & t-shirt while we were going around the province the past 3 days. It can be generally windy in Batanes since it's surrounded by the ocean/sea.
Luggage and bags: Don't exceed 10kg total luggage weight limit.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light clothing, and a light jacket. It is windy in Batanes. I went there March 19-24, 2008, my friend who was always in shorts & sando had colds on our 4th day. Sturdy or comfortable shoes bec you'll do lots of walking and some minor hikes. Be prepared to get your feet wet if you're taking the falowa to Sabtang.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunblock sunblock sunblock to ensure you're not sun burned.
Photo Equipment: Better bring your own camera even if your friends have theirs to share.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Aqua sock. The sand is course and there are lots of shells and rocks on the beach, you need your feet protected.
Miscellaneous: Cash only. There's a Landbank ATM in town. There's PNB but I don't think they have an ATM.
Cash is the only way to go!
Luggage and bags: Plastic bags to put in your camera, wallet and mobile phone.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: comfortable shoes or sandals. You will be walking a lot, some climbing so soles shouldn't be so slippery. No place for the glamor shoes here.
In summer the sun hurts but the wind is strong; shorts are ok with a light windbreaker. Unexpected short spell of rains but never lasts long so i don't think umbrellas are necessary. A hat would prevent sunburn too.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I didn't readily see a pharmacy so maybe some Immodium/Lomotil just in case of diarrhea.
Photo Equipment: Batanes is a photographer's dream.
Miscellaneous: Cash, cash, cash! No credit cards accepted. Only 2 banks: PNB and Landbank. Am not sure if these branches have atm.Related to:

Things to Bring
Luggage and bags: Best would be to pack your things in a backpack. And do not exceed the 20 kilograms luggage limit.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Best to wear are cool and light clothing. Shorts and shirts would be best as Batanes weather can be warm. Walking shoes/sturdy slippers or rubber shoes would be okay. Other things you should bring are: cap, hat or bandana, sunglasses and a light jacket. If you go there during the rainy season (which isn't advisable for possibility of getting stranded for days), you might consider bring a water-proof jacket and shoes.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Personal things like toothpaste, toothbrush, bath towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, oh and sunblock and insect/mosquito repellant. These lotions should be in your check-in luggage, not your hand-carry, lest you want to leave them with the immigration & customs officials.
Photo Equipment: Bring your cam, extra batteries, extra film, sturdy camera tripod (the wind there is strong!).
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: You could bring any camp, beach or outdoor gear except for the butane gas caniters which the airline don't allow.
Miscellaneous: Lots of money... you never know if you'll get stranded. Sorry, not ATMs in Batanes.Related to:
