WHERE TO GO IN GUIMARAS

 

Guimaras Island is a favored destination by both foreign and domestic tourists because of its picturesque beaches, waterfalls, springs, off shore islets, and its famous mangoes, which is considered one of the sweetest in the world. Guimaras is an island province of the Philippines located in the Western Visayas region.

Guimaras is also well known for its white sand beaches, pristine seas, and secluded off shore islets. Among its most popular destinations include Alubihod Bay with its calm waters, and Guisi Beach, where visitors could enjoy the province’s natural beauty.

White sand beaches, multi-colored corals, fish, and other marine life are also found in Igang and Tando Bays and Taklong islets. For those who opt to relax in a secluded and luxurious destination, there’s Costa Aguada Island Resort in Inampulungan Island, Nagarao Island Resort, and Isla Naburot.  Read More:  http://touristsparadise.blogspot.com/2012/04/guimaras-island-philippines.html

 

Alubihod Beach

When we arrived at Alubihod, the beach is more appealing to me. Waves are just right, not so big to scare away a non swimmer like me. The sand is fine and off-white, the beach area is not too crowded. It would have been perfect to spend the night here and take a swim in the morning and go island hopping. Ah, the sea is such a tease! I wanted to stay for another day or two to explore the  other islands and islets but our flight was early morning the next day.  Read More:  https://jackinetic.wordpress.com/tag/guimaras-2/

Guimaras may be known for its mangoes—said to be the sweetest in the world—but this Western Visayan island-province, which is only a 15-minute boat ride from Iloilo City, Iloilo province, is turning out to be a perfect tourist destination to go to this summer, particular this Holy Week. 
For those looking to go on a spiritual journey this Holy Week, one place they could go to is the Balaan Bukid Shrine in Jordan town. Regarded as a Roman Catholic pilgrimage site, the mountain shrine has a large cross and a chapel on top of it. If you reach the top, the shrine offers a terrific view of Iloilo City.  Read More:  http://marketmonitor.com.ph/guimaras-where-faith-and-fun-come-together/
 

Guisi Beach

As soon as we reached the shore, I was instantly held captive by the charm of Guisi beach. The closer view was more beautiful than the view from the road uphill. I was amazed by how transparent the water was, making the rocks and pebbles underwater visible. I soon realized how Guisi Clearwater Resort got its name. The sand is not powdery like the sand of Boracay but its golden yellow color makes it unique on its own. The blue water and yellowish texture of the sand create a seascape of varying shades of green. The water was also peaceful and calm which could have been a perfect day for me to swim and snorkel.

At the right far end of the beach, beautiful rock formations caught my attention. I headed toward this side after seeing some opportunities for great seascape and landscape shots. On this part of the beach is the abundance of pebbles of varying sizes. There is also a wooden stair that leads up to Kenyama Beach Resort. I didn’t go further beyond the huge rocks because one would need to climb over these rock formations or trudge through the waist-deep water to get to the other side.  Read More:  http://www.pinoytravelfreak.com/2012/02/guisi-beach-in-guimaras.html
