Gigantes Island Travel Guide: Day 2

We woke up before 6am on Saturday morning to start early with our scheduled activities. Had a quick breakfast then prepared our stuff for caving and island hopping.


Look at my beautiful-plastic-sheepish smile

Everyone’s excited ’cause this is the awaited day to experience the adventures in the island. 

Gigantes Island: All about the Scallops capital of the Philippines

Islas de Gigantes or Gigantes Island  is part of Carles, Iloilo. Little has known about its existence and still remains off the beaten path. The island consists of beautiful scenery with white sand beaches where you can go beach bumming. It is also known as the ‘scallops capital of the Philippines‘ and it taught me that scallops are not deadly when eaten since its my first time to eat scallops here. lol lol lol


I’ve been dying to go to this island since last year and good thing I’ve met people who wanted to do the same thing. Unfortunately, Neil (my travel buddy) can’t come with us since he has school stuff that he needs to prioritize and I almost didn’t go because of it. But for god’s sake, who doesn’t want to go to this kind of place and experience its beauty?

So what are the things that you can do in Gigantes Island? How can we get to the island? Where to stay?

Alcoy again!

So I’ve been in a hiatus for like 2 months but apparently I’ve been on vacations or team building during those times. Procrastination just ate me alive. Now, I have realized that I need to post something on my blog or my monthly bill for my hosting package would be a waste of money. LOL JUST KIDDING BUT NO I AM SERIOUS.

Anyhow, last October, me and Neil went to Alcoy to freshen up. lol.


Eventually, there are no crucial things to share. Just us… enjoying the sand, sea and heat of the sun. lol. So let me just share the photos.

Forest Camp, Valencia in Negros Oriental

After the Apo Island trip, we went directly to Harold’s Mansion to get our stuff and leave for Valencia to visit the Forest Camp. It is a mountain resort with its natural pools and a waterfall. It is great for picnics especially for family and group of friends.


Forest Camp in Valencia is just a 30-40 minute ride from Dumaguete City. If you want to stay here for a night then they also have family cottages. As what I’ve heard, Forest Camp doesn’t allow alocholic beverages inside the premises.

Dumaguete City of Negros Oriental

My family has always been to Dumaguete City as a stop over to and from Cebu or Dapitan City. We’ve also strolled around the city and visited some known spots before.

However, since I was too impulsive and wanted to visit Negros Oriental once again with my mom and le~sis then off we go not only to visit Dumaguete City but also other spots there.


Top 5 things to do in Cebu for adventurers

Since I am currently on a hiatus right now due to work and personal agendas, I don’t have time yet to explore Cebu. Though I did plan with my family but since mom doesn’t want to go with me because of *insert mother instincts here* then I had no choice but to stay in the city, bored and unproductive. Of course I can do that on my own but laziness has taken over me. lol

Anyway, while I’m still ineffective right now, let’s talk about the 5 things you can do in Cebu during rainy days where you can’t beach bum and flaunt your bikinis or beach bodies. There are those things that you can still do especially for the adventurers! So what are they?
