Guimaras Island Travel Guide: 112 reviews and 390 photos

Guimaras is a quick ferry and outrigger boat ride from Bacolod and has unspoilt coves and beaches for those in search of a tropical getaway with none of the frills...just quiet resorts and clear blue-green waters. If you're looking for a place to go to really get away from it all, Guimaras is for you.

    I hope you're not distracting the monks and the abbot, if you know what I mean :)

    Iloilo has the best mangoes in the world; sweet delicious fruit that's worth kidnapping for. If you don't think their crop is worth protecting then you don't know jackfruit about mangoes.
