Guimaras

You want to find the most delicious mangoes in the country? Go to Guimaras and get a chance to not just taste them but experience a whole lot more.  Guimaras island is found Southeast of Panay and Northwest of Negros Islands in Western Visayas and is a short boat ride from the province of IloIlo which is one of the country’s major cities. 

When in Guimaras, you can go to several island hopping destinations such as Turtle Sanctuary, Turtle Island, Ave Maria Island, Fairy Castle, Baras Beach Resort & Baras Cave, Lamurawan, Soly Luna, Natago Beach Resort, and Naburot Island.  Boats are readily available and are paid by the hour and not by how many destinations you go to which gives you control of your own pace.  Go to religious tourist attractions like Navalas Church, which is the oldest structure in the province, and the Trappist Monastery and buy souvenirs made by the monks themselves. 

As any destination in the Philippines, best way to cap off your stay in Guimaras is to go to the beach and release all your worries away while basking in the Sun.
