Tangke Saltwater Lagoon

Tangke Saltwater Lagoon in Iloilo

Photo by CTPH Tours

Tucked within the steep cliffs of Isla de Gigantes Sur in Iloilo is Tangke Saltwater Lagoon. Hailed as Iloilo’s hidden paradise, Tangke Lagoon’s refreshing shallow waters and scenic rock formations makes this isolated spot one of the rising tourist attractions in the province.

Tangke means “tank” in Filipino and the locals named the lagoon as such because there is a “gap” among the boulders that serves as the opening to the water. Water from the sea goes inside the “tank” to fill up the lagoon. There are times that the waters can get shallow and can even dry up. This makes the natural pool perfect for those who are scared to swim in deeper waters.


Best time to visit

Just like other island destinations, summer months (March to May) is the best time to visit this lagoon. However, expect large crowds during this season as most school-aged children are also on summer break and are likely to be on vacation with their families.
