    Beautiful beach , you would never want to leave this place. Perfect for photography and lifetime memories . Specially the wave board you get on rentals can keep you busy and floating :)

    As Locals say: The last wild beach in Boracay!! Nice, quite and not crowded beach (at least on this specific day - 24th December)...sand is a bit more rough compared with White Beach, but a much better place for people that like quite places...Don't expect fancy places to eat, because the ones available are the traditional Filipino stalls, but the food is good. Eat on beach can be fancy. We stayed at Fairways and it was 150php to get there.

    I am taking the time to write a review because as I was planning on my trip, there was little if not no information I can find on the net.

    Whenever I visit the Philippines, I always try to have some beach holiday. This time it is the Gigantes Islands. Me & my sisters traveled from Manila to Roxas City. I just concluded for myself that Roxas City is the most convenient airport to start our trip. This is specially if you don't want to waste your time. We flew Cebu Pacific. Careful guys, I booked 1 20kg baggage allowance, but we only brouht cabin trolleys. We were not allowed to check in 2 bags that equals to 20kg. Unlike last year, we could. We decided to have the 2 bags cellophaned together. Cost 200P. We got to check it in as 1 bag.

    As you leave Roxas City airport you can find a queue of tricycles with a fix rate of 100P/pax, that can take you to the Bus Station or Van Station going to Carles. Carles is where the Island hopping boats start from. We opted for the van as this is quicker with less stops. I'm guessing it is a 12 Seater & the fare is 100P/pax. The van leaves when it is full. So, they don't really follow a time table. But there are enough vans waiting one after the other.

    We were staying Solina Beach & Nature Resort. I love the resort! The place is very chill. Breakfast buffet is amazing with lots of choices on food for everyone. Dinner was also good. Portions are for sharing with 2 persons. Prices were reasonable.

    The hotel booked our Island hopping tour. We went for the joiners, which cost us 999P including drinks & lunch. We were brought to the pier. The staff at the pier were well organized. The formalities were arranged by the hotel crew, we only had to wait at the waiting room until it was time to board the boat.

    Tour was okay with 5 island stops? Touristy as it is. The level of adventure 7 out of 10. One time we had to walk for about 200 meters to the shore because it was low tide & the boat couldn't anchor nearer. Lunch was good, fulfilling the promised unli-scallops! The level of adventure/hike was not as taxing as El Nido islands. All in ll still worth seeing.

    We spent 3 days in Carles, the took a van from the bus station to Iloilo City. There were no traffic, it only took us 2 hrs to get there.

    Iloilo is great mixture of an urban new city, with a few old spanish homes. Lots of restaurants, malls, & cafes to hang out. Excellent infrustructure & lots of taxis!

    Hope you get some tips from my review.

    Fantastic cultural experience, a must do for families or groups. Very well put together. A chance to give back to the local community and gain an insight to some history.

    Pearli was amazing, a great guide.

    Always love to walk here whenever we visit iloilo. There are people fishing in the river too. And the place is not so crowded. There are some people jogging and walking around but not so crowded.

    This is adjacent to White Beach. More popular for kite-surfers. I don't kite surf but it's nice to just sit by the shore and watch the kites gliding in the air. Very breezy. Chill atmosphere. Friendly dogs roaming.

    Can confirm that this is open. It costs 120P to enter. Great views. We walked up the hill, but you can take an e-taxi to the bottom of the stairs, if you like.

    What a gorgeous beach! The sand is white and the water is incredibly blue. It’s secluded with very few people.

    Ate lunch with my son at Kaya (sp?), a little restaurant in the white condominium building right on the beach. My son enjoyed a delicious burger and I had a salad.
