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.
Nestled in the Visayan Sea, your day's adventure will start from Carles Town. A boat from Carles Port will then cruise you along the sparkling seas until you reach Sicogon Island.
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.
