A Peaceful Getaway on Gigantes Island, Iloilo

If you’re looking for a break from stress and deadlines, this may be just what you need. The Gigantes Island, also known as Islas de Gigantes or the Island of Giants, is a remote group of islands located off the coast of Carles and Estancia towns in northeastern Iloilo, Philippines. Those willing to go “extra miles” can look forward to enjoying beautiful sea escapes and laid-back island lifestyle that Gigantes Island has to offer.

THINGS TO DO:

Island Hopping

Island #1 : TANGKE
On this island, you’ll also see a lagoon where people like to go cliff-diving. With a little imagination, it looks like a giant’s bathtub!
Island #2 : CABUGAO GAMAY ISLAND
Being the icon of Isla de Gigantes, Cabugao Gamay is probably the most photographed island in Gigantes Sur. Upon reaching the island, you will immediately notice its unique shape, its powdery white sand and the healthy coconut trees lined up against the blue skies.
Island #3 : BANTIQUE
Bantigue Island’s wide stretch of white sand in the middle of the ocean is what captivates you. This sandbar looks like a division of two waters during low tide as it seems to disappear in shallow water during high tide. Good place to get lost and find your inner peace!
