This nature reserve has a sandbar that changes with the tide and the season. It is really amazing and it is what is pictured in postcards. The kind of island you would have in mind when you want to unplugged and spend a few hours.
This place is truly a gem. Philippines is so lucky to have this kind of nature! Once i stepped in this island, i have the best shots in my camera. Addtional to fun is having great friends to support you in your pictures. You'll surely...More

Yes it is true for the locals and people living in the island. As tourist, I suggest you rent a boat that will bring you to different islands in Gigantes group of islands. We got a package last April for as high as Php 3,500/person for 3 nights and 2 days tour. It will take care of your food, and boat rides going to different islands. You may get in touch with Joel Decano, owner and contact person for Gigantes Hideaway Tourist Inn: 0918 468 5006. Just be patient in contacting him because the island has poor signal and he can only be contacted when is in the mainland Estancia. However, if you arrive if the wharf/port, there is tourism officer who can accommodate your queries and can give you option for different packages. From what airport are coming from? If you are from Roxas City airport, that is 2 hours away and if you are from Iloilo City that is 3-4 hours away to Estancia.
Sorry for late reply, are you still interested in visiting Gigantes? Anyway, if you wish to push through, in Gigantes Norte, my friends stayed in Hideaway Tourist Inn and a package rate approx US$42.00 included boat... More
