"I've been to most of the resorts and islands of Guimaras but 2 that I would like to mention are: 1. Magic Island - a private resort where one could relax and enjoy the entire island as your own since bookings are only limited. Advance booking is necessary if you want to go there.They can arrange a flat boat for u to travel from main island barangay to magic island passing by mangrove forest. The entire stay is worry free since they can cook all your meals and even serve 2 snacks a day. all included on their price rate as well as island hopping tour 2. SEAFDEC, Igang Marine Station - a marine reserve that is usually one of the destination during guimaras island hopping. It houses 2 giant grouper which is now 16 yrs old as of this post. Fish Pens or cages where placed in the middle of the sea that houses not only groupers but also mother milkfishes that grows a meter big as well as 'labahita' a fish that has a blade like tail.. and others that i forgot the names.. the marine reserve has a garden full of giant clams (oh, it's not only in land we can find a garden but here also.. a garden of giant clams!)I've been there twice one with an island hop and just last DEcember 2014, I was just so lucky I was able to get a permit to stay in their pink cottages that was original built for the scientist and researchers. Somehow they can allow tourist to stay but permit through invitation is required. Great adventure with marine life especially during low tide where I got a chance to stroll the sea beds and check on the different species of live sea shells, star fishes, sea cucumbers etc.. "

Travel Information  Travel Information

There is no direct flight to Guimaras. If you're coming from Manila, take a direct flight to Iloilo City. Located southwest of Panay, Guimaras is separated from Iloilo by the Iloilo Strait, a narrow channel which takes about fifteen minutes to cross by pump boat from the Ortiz landing in Iloilo to Jordan, Guimaras.

Other ferries leave from the Parola wharf in Iloilo to the municipality of Buenavista, Guimaras. The Parola wharf is used exclusively whenever the water is rough. There also is a roll-on/roll-off (RORO) ferry that travels around five times a day.

"Great beaches and people! The locals would offer to pick us up if we were walking, and always offered that we could call them if we had any problems. Wild horses on the roads were cool to see. Signs are lacking in many areas, so ask for directions. You'll need a rental car to get around if you want to see the entire island. Esperanza has the best restaurants (on the Malecon). Must go to the bio bay! Amazing!
