Go on a full-packed island hopping adventure in this tour that takes you to the Gigantes Group of Islands and Sicogon Island–Iloilo's most iconic summer destinations.
Explore the Gigantes Islands, or the Islas de Gigantes, that are nestled off the shores of Carles Town. The adventure starts with a visit to Pulupandan Islet that features gorgeous rock formations. It is also known for its solitary palm tree, the last palm tree left on the island after typhoon Yolanda swept away the other trees and houses on the islet. Check out Tangke Lagoon that is tucked within the steep cliffs and hailed as Iloilo's hidden paradise. Here, you can enjoy a peaceful time swimming in its saltwater pool. If you are adventurous, you may also try cliff diving while on site. Explore Tinagong Dagat, or "Mini Boracay" to the locals, that offers Boracay vibes with its picturesque white sands and stunningly clear waters.
See for yourself the spectacular view of Cabugao Gamay, the most iconic and most photographed spot in the Gigantes Group of Islands. It features massive rocks and a hill can be seen from a viewing deck. Imagine pairing this up with a stretch of ivory sand and palm trees at the center – the perfect tropical postcard. Snorkel to your heart's content at Antonia Island that provides a lively underwater scenery. Beach bum at Bantigue Island, where the shape of the sandbar shifts depending on the current. It is also a nice spot for swimming, snorkeling, and even camping.
Discover the charm of Sicogon Island, a famous summer destination during the 70s and 80s, and one of the best islands in Panay. Its crystal clear waters and long stretch of white sand beach lined with coconut trees makes it a perfect tropical destination.
When in Sicogon, you can lounge in the golden sands of Brgy. Buaya Beach, explore the lush virgin forests in the area or swim in its pristine waters. There are also rocky parts in the island, especially if you explore its eastern side, where you can see the bare rock summit of Mt. Opao. From Sicogon Island, you will see nearby islands too. The main cluster of Gigantes Island may be seen from the Brgy. Buaya Beach side of Sicogon. There are a lot more spots in Sicogon Island as the eastern and southern sides of the island are largely uninhabited. These parts are marked with untouched beaches and grand rock cliffs.
A resort used to set in Sicogon Island. Today, most of the structures of the resort were replaced by tall coconut trees and nipa huts built by locals settling in the island. Its grand pavilion and grounds were destroyed and have been overrun by wild vegetation, but may still be seen in the forest.
Just off the coast of Brgy. Buaya is the Tumaquin Islet, which may be accessed by a short boat trip or by foot during low tide. It is an ideal spot for snorkeling and diving.
