Enchanting Islas de Gigantes: Cabugao Gamay Island

  • Thursday, February 11, 2016

Next stop is the iconic island of Isla Gigantes, the Cabugao Gamay Island. I’d say iconic because of the famous shot you see when you google Isla Gigantes that made this group of islands a famous tourist destination.

It has a beautiful stretch of white sand beach with clear blue waters that is perfect for swimming, pretty much comparable to Boracay Island minus the crowd and commercialism.

But wait, there’s still more! For those who are adventurous and fit enough to do some rock climbing, prepare yourself because you’re going to have one here. Just a few walk from the beach is a steep rock formation that is not to be missed in order to enjoy that grand aerial view of the island.

The climb can be a bit slippery especially if you’re walking with your wet sandals or slippers. I initially decided to take off my slippers and walk barefoot however the very first instance I laid my foot on the rock, I almost burned it! Okay. I’m exaggerating, but it was in the middle of the day when we got there and the scorching heat from the sun is taking a toll on us. So instead, I wore my slippers and climb that hilly boulders cautiously following every steps of our guide.


And finally we reached the top of the rock and viola! (Drum rolls please) – the amazing view of the entire island!

The beautiful white sand beach surrounded by the vast shimmering ocean and the lush vegetation around the island makes it a perfect view.

And of course, I simply cannot let this chance pass to have my picture taken in this famous island. Picture perfect right?! Lol


This is indeed my favourite beach! I hope you enjoyed your time here. Thanks for dropping by!
