Islets Around Gigantes, Carles, Iloilo

isletsI feel we are all islands – in a common sea.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Crystal blue water, white sand beach, rocks on the sea, and a lot of sumptuous meals of scallops is a good combination this island can offer.  Yep, in my previous post about nature, I wrote about Cabugao Gamay island but I realized there are a lot to write about Isla Gigantes. I decided to write something more general to feature some spots I may as well choose to drop for the sake of limiting the post. 🙂


As I have mentioned, the place is sooooooooooo beautiful but it comes with a price as it’s not very easy to get there. This is the next place to be for Chris and me. 🙂

Here are some other spots we’ve been to:

  1. Tangke Saltwater Lagoon. Hidden behind the cliffs of Gigantes Sur (the one on the first picture), its refreshing water can go really shallow during summer months but you will surely be surrounded by beautiful rock formations. When inside, you could actually hear the sound of water gushing in from the outside (you know what this means, right?). g1g8g7g6g5g3g2
  2. Bantigue Sandbar.  The remarkable white sand visible from afar excites one’s soul. Running through the beach on both sides, it is shaped like letter C and is so fine. There are just a few houses in this island perhaps because some parts of this go underwater on high tides. g12g13g14b1b3ba
  3. Antonia Beach. This place offers a very place for swimming and snorkeling. A favorite lunch stop for island hoppers, the fine white sand beach lie in between two limestone hills. g20g21g22g23g24
  4. All those rocks by the sea. Sharing this trait with Palawan, one can’t help but behold how beautiful the rock formations are around Isla Gigantes. g9g10g25g26g27g29g30g31g32

There are some more places to explore in Gigantes, but I will have to see it myself first before listing them down here. 🙂

Believed to have been home to ancient giants (legends), this group of islands is no doubt mystically beautiful.
