Embark in an island hopping adventure and explore the Gigantes Islands, or the Islas de Gigantes. Who would have thought that this iconic destination in Iloilo was discovered only after the typhoon Yolanda havoc? These gorgeous islets that are nestled off the shores of Carles Town are now among the most visited destinations in the province.
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.
