Iloilo Islas de Gigantes Island Hopping Tour with Seafood Lunch
Experience a day out in the sea on this full-day island hopping shared tour to Islas de Gigantes in Carles, Iloilo. This tour is ideal for beach lovers and travelers looking for a laidback adventure in the northern section of the province and who want to feast on the freshest seafood. It also comes with the service of a guide, seafood lunch, and bottled water. If you want to be picked up from your hotel in Iloilo City, you can book an add-on transfer or upgrade to a private tour.
Your guide will meet you at Bancal Port, Carles, around 8 AM on the day of your tour. To change the pick-up time and location, make sure to request it in advance as additional fees may apply. Once you've met up with your guide, you will then board your boat. When you're ready, you will then set sail for your first destination, Bantigue Sandbar.
This popular sandbar boasts fine white sand and blue water. At low tide, the sandbar expands in length and width, forming an S-shape when viewed above. After docking at Bantigue Sandbar, feel free to walk around and take plenty of photos. Make sure to take a dip in the inviting waters as well before you head over to Antonia Beach.
Antonia Beach is known for its vibrant marine life, making it the perfect spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. If you prefer taking it easy instead, you can always chill at the powdery beach and enjoy the surrounding seascape. This is usually the lunch stopover where you can feast on fresh seafood and scallops.
From there, you will be taken to the Tangke Lagoon. This spot can only be accessed during the high tide. Take a jump from the surrounding cliffs into the pool and chill in its relaxing waters. You will be given plenty of time to enjoy the lagoon before making your way to Isla Gamay or Selfie Island.
This island isn't called Selfie Island without good reason. If you go up the stairway, a breathtaking view of the whole island and its surrounding landscape will greet you at the top, making it the perfect backdrop for your selfies. You can also relax on its fine white sand or dip in its blue waters.
For the trip's last stop, you will head to Pulo Pandan, a small island with a lone coconut tree and some rocks with interesting shapes and patterns. The island is bare, save for the coconut and rocks, so expect to feel the heat here. After a quick photo-op on the islet, you will head back to the mainland.
