Gigantes Island

    Visit Isla Gigantes, officially called “Islas de Gigantes” and popularly referred to as “Gigantes Island” or “Islas Gigantes.” If you’ve already been to other well-known islands in the Philippines, such as Boracay and Palawan (El Nido, Coron, Port Barton, San Vicente/Long Beach, and Puerto Princesa), you are probably a beach lover, and you will for sure enjoy Gigantes.

    Isla Gigantes is an island off the coast of Iloilo with white sand beaches, beautiful rock formations, and expansive sandbars. It is said that the skeletons of huge humans were unearthed on the Isla Gigantes, a renowned tourist destination in Iloilo.

    Gigantes Island Attractions

    Cabugao Gamay

      The island resort of Cabugao is beautiful. Its location is characterized by two rocky outcroppings connected by a thin “sandbar” that juts out into the water. The island’s small shape, with lush vegetation at one end and stunning rock formations at the other, has made it famous, and not just among locals (“Gamay” means small in the local language).

      Island hoppers and day-trippers make up the vast majority of the island’s tourists.

      Take a dip in the turquoise waters, or just relax on the white sandbar that runs down the middle of the island for a true island getaway.
      The beach is dotted with palm trees, which offer welcome relief from the midday sun.

      A photo taken from the highest point on Gigantes will forever remain the most recognizable photograph of the island. Famous views may be seen at the summit of the short but steep bamboo stairway.

      Tourists flock to a particular spot on Cabugao Gamay known as “selfie island” because it provides a perfect vantage point for taking images of the island and its surroundings.

      Tangke Lagoon

      You’ve found the natural pool that Gigantes Island conceals behind its towering limestone cliffs. The water is as brilliantly turquoise as that in the lagoons of El Nido and Coron on the island of Palawan.

      Bantigue Island/Sandbar

      Bantigue Island is another fantastic spot for swimming and sunbathing, thanks to its long, white sandbar.

      Antonia Beach

      This is a stunning beach where some large stones appear to have been heaped on top of each other along the beach coastlines, making this island easy to recognize.

      Pulo Pandan

      A solitary coconut tree marks the geographic center of Pulupandan Islet. Although this islet is a bit rough, its surrounding area is beautiful.

      Hidden Beach

      The white sands of this tranquil area have been compared to those of Boracay Island, from which its name derives. There are small cliffs at the beach that drop out into the pristine waters.

      Mini Boracay

      Mini Boracay is a small beach with soft, fine sand that has earned the nickname from the locals. About 30 square meters of sand is all that’s available, making this literally “mini” in every sense of the word. Nevertheless, despite being small, the locals take small pride in this little white sandy beach.
