Are you fond of island adventures? If so, Isla de Gigantes in Carles, Iloilo is a suitable destination for you. It takes a two-hour boat-ride from either Estancia or Carles Port for you to reach this paradise. The beauty of the sea in this island is comparable to that of the Maldives, while the rock formation is similar to the rock formations in Palawan.
When you visit Isla de Gigantes, don’t expect it to be just a one-stop destination. Hiring a boat is ideal if your group wants to visit the 10 islands which make up the island chain.
Each island has a unique feature. For instance, Tangke contains a beach in the middle of a giant rock formation. On the other hand, Antonia Beach Resort has a giant rock formation and white sand beach. Here, you can also enjoy cheap scallops and water sports, among other things. Lastly, the sand bar in Cabugao Gamay is the most popular spot for photos in the island.
September 2020 Update: Isla de Gigantes is temporarily closed but is planning to reopen to locals.
