Sicogon Island

Sicogon Island in Iloilo

Sicogon Island is located in the northern region of Iloilo, flanked by Panay Island on the west and the Visayan Sea on the east. It is under the municipality of Carles, Iloilo, and the name Sicogon comes from a type of grass endemic to the island, called cogon. 

Nearby Sicogon Island lies a small island called Tumaquin Island, which is so near that it can be traversed by foot during low tide. There are also various diving and snorkeling spots in the area, where some of the clearest blue waters can be found, perfect for swimming.

The white sand beach in Brgy. Buaya is punctuated by coconut trees and small nipa huts that tourists can rent for a day or even overnight. The sunrise view from here is one of the most memorable and picturesque views, definitely not to be missed. 

Best time to visit

To enjoy the natural attractions on Sicogon Island, it’s best to visit during the dry months, which are usually from November to May. You may still visit the island and the province of Iloilo during other months, but you need to prepare for possible rain showers.
