Getaway to Gigantes Islands, Carles, Iloilo
Gigantes Islands or giant islands are huge rock formations on the white powdery sand beach resort in Gigantes, a part of the town of Carles, Iloilo, the northeastern part of Panay Island in west central Philippines.
Its pristine island and azure waters with its sparkling white sands is comparable to El Nido, Palawan, Philippines because it is unspoiled, isolated and non commercialized area open only for a few tourists. It is also the place of some artifacts discovered few years back, one of our great ancestors, pioneer settlers of the Philippines. Gigantes Islands is also home to some endemic flora and fauna which are critically endangered species. I will never regret visiting this island and if possible, maybe build a vacation retreat house or permanent residence because of the loveliness of the island. You can watch more of the Gigantes Islands or Isla de Gigantes, Carles, Iloilo on Youtube.
