Enchanting Islas de Gigantes: Gaket-Gaket Island

  • Friday, February 12, 2016

Welcome to our first stop, Isla Gaket-Gaket also known as Balabagon Island.


It’s just a small island with a small hut in the middle and surrounded by white sand beach with pristine blue waters and stunning rock formations. Surprisingly there is a family living on the island who’s main source of livelihood is (obviously) fishing! lol

Since our trip is a chartered one, we decided to leave Estancia port around lunch time, earlier than the public boat, and had our lunch on the boat. We opted to proceed with our island hopping tour with our first stop, Gaket-gaket island, since it is the nearest island from the port. This island is a known stopover for fishermen who would decide to take some rest before continuing their trips.

 The rock formations are stunningly beautiful I almost cried. Lol ;-)>

If you're looking for a beach where you can just relax and read a book, this is the one for you. It's also the nearest island from the port of Carles town.

I hope you enjoyed your time here. Thanks for dropping by! I made series of post regarding our trip to Isla Gigantes, you can check them out here Enroute Isla Gigantes.

I would really appreciate it. Thanks! ;-)>

    1. Hi Denmark. 2,500 to 3K would be enough for 2 days 1 night stay and tour. The cost would be lesser if you will travel in groups. I was there just few months ago (Feb 2016) and spent 2100 for the entire trip (5 of us in a group).
