Bantique is famous for its long sandbar, crystalline waters and colorful corals. But it also has a nice eatery (named DJ Eatery) that serves fresh seafood. We stopped by this place for lunch during our island hopping in Isla de Gigantes and had a chance to taste some succulent steamed scallops, wasay-wasay (ax oysters), and tuyom (sea urchins). The food was so fresh and delicious and cheap! I would highly recommend that you visit this place for lunch. You won't regret it!

This is one of the islands you will visit in Isla De Gigantes. When we got there the tide is getting high. Although you can still see the sandbar, so we made sure that we get our pictures taken before the sandbar vanishes :) The sand is powdery and very clear waters. We were only there for a few minutes since the waves are getting strong.

There was a little boy selling keychains and magnet in the island. Please please please buy from him, it is about 50php each. He sells souvenir after school and has to pay 50php for the bankero to take him to the island.

Gigantes Islands in the Visayas seemed from afar one long stretch of land. However, when one gets closer, there are actually several islands that comprise Gigantes. Bantigue is one of those islands which has become the destination for the island hopping expedition of most of the boats in the area. Everyone docks here to savor locale food fare of fresh seafoods.....saltwater fish (Talakitok, Mayamaya); scallops sold by the bushels; oysters; crabs; grilled pork or chicken; sea urchins and many more exotic fares. We landed in the sandbar early that day to avoid the crowds. We sat on a table in the makeshift bamboo huts and ordered our lunch. A whole of two hours passed and while waiting for our food we took a nice dip in the clean waters amidst the blue skies. It was exhilarating to feel so free without a care in the world among the tourists like us. Beautiful Bantigue Island.

This was one stop off point during our island hopping in Isla Gigantes. An under rated however excellent place to do island hopping.

Bantigue has a great sandbar with excellent white sand and clear waters.

Bantigue, Cabugao Gamao and Tangke are all excellent stops.

Like Antonia Beach and Sicogon, this is another island that is usually included in a day island hopping tour from Isla Gigantes. The place is famous for its stretch of white sand bar and crystal clear waters, great for swimming. But aside from these, the place doesn't really have much to offer. A few minutes would suffice to visit this island ... long enough for a quick dip and some pictorials.

Sandbar during habagat season gets submerged in the seawater so try to visit during summer or early in the morning before the sea swells.

Islas de Gigantes tour group stop here to have lunch. It's a government owned island so no admission fees. You'll get charged for table rental though (50 pesos) if it's not included in your tour package. The community that lives here offers a thriving business that sells and cooks seafood to tourists. They offer scallops for 1 peso each but you have to buy P100 worth as minimum which is not a problem because you will consume it quickly especially when doused with sinamak (provided with the tables). They also offer Wasay-wasay, a relative of the oyster but with an axe-shaped shell, among other edible sea creatures. Drinks and rice are also available.

After eating, you can walk around and explore how far the shallows of the long sand bar goes.

This was the last leg if our gigantes island hopping tour. The sky was a bit overcast and raining a little when we reached the place. We did not disembarked from our boat and just decided to pass by the island since the sandbar is submerged is water as it is high tide. As per our guide this is best enjoyed during summer.
