Go on an island-hopping tour around the gems off the coast of Carles in Iloilo with this tour to Islas de Gigantes or Gigantes Islands from Roxas City. If you’re a beach lover who can’t get enough of Vitamin Sea, make sure to book this tour
You will be picked up within Roxas City. When everything is settled, you will then board a boat and start sailing to Gigantes Island. This cluster of islets were discovered in 2013, following the outburst of Typhoon Yolanda in the region. It was then developed and has become a tourist destination.
Your first stop will be at Bantigue Island. The island boasts a long stretch of powder-like white sand and cerulean blue waters. Travelers will find this beach a nice place to chill and just soak up the sun. You can indulge in freshly harvested scallops while lounging on Bantigue Island’s beautiful sandbar. From there, you will be taken to Antonia Island, where dozens of fish and marine life are settled. This makes the island a popular destination for snorkeling. Most visitors also camp on the island’s shores.
Next up, you will marvel at the majestic limestone cliff drops and spectacular rock formations of the Tangke Saltwater Lagoon. You can happily swim around its shallow yet enchanting emerald green waters that look like your very own private pool. The boat ride to get into the cove is an adventure in itself, but it’s all worth it once you see the gorgeous natural structure inside.
If you’re down for a quick climb, you’ll enjoy the trip to Cabugao Gamay. The place is adorned with a stretch of palm trees along the shoreline. You can hike up one of the hills to get a good scenic view of the island. You will then be given time for some photo-ops at Pulo Pandan before heading home.
