Overview

Isla Gigantes is one of the hottest and best tropical tourist attractions in the Philippines today. Composed of 13 islands--8 of which are lined with pristine white sandy beaches--Isla Gigantes has more to offer than just swimming in its crystal clear turquoise waters. There are dozens of caves to discover, virgin remote beaches, a saltwater lagoon, and fantastic snorkeling areas.

Joined a day trip with Las Islas Travel and Tours. It is a 1 1/2 hr boat ride from Carles Port. There 5 islands to visit. Lunch is always composed of wasay-wasay (a kind of oyster) and scallops. Just be prepared for lots of sunblock.
