Guimaras

Guimaras, an island province in the Western Visayas region, is sandwiched in between the islands of Panay and Negros. For those seeking less crowded beaches, there are plenty to choose from in this area. Additionally, its waterfalls, springs, and islets make swimming and snorkeling the main activities in the province.

Plenty of exploring can be done on land. Attractions such as the Guisi Lighthouse, Trappist Monastery, and the Roca Encantada (Enchanted Rock) can be found here. The Balaan Bukid Shrine is also a popular destination, as it has life sized stations of the cross, making it a must-see for the religious and devout. Unique to Guimaras is its Trappist Monastery, which is the only male monastery in the Philippines, built in 1972.

Many travelers also go island hopping in the area, starting with the famous Alibuhud Beach and a stop at the Pawikan (Sea Turtle) Sanctuary. The Ave Maria Island in Jordan and the Isla Naburot also make a beautiful swimming, diving, and snorkeling area for the water baby. No resorts can be found in the area, making it an appealing option for those looking for a less commercialized place.

Meanwhile, Baras Beach offers a range of watersports and other recreational activities such as bird watching, boating, and windsurfing to name a few. Natago Beach is known for its rock formations, while the Guimaras Adventure Park is another option for the adrenaline junkies who want to try other activities like rappelling, target shooting, and even horseback riding.
