Islas de Gigantes


    It is advised to stay at least 3 days and 2 nights when taking by commuter pumpboat (banca) to Gigantes because the boat arrives on the island in the late afternoon and departs in the early morning the following day (though this schedule may change anytime, so please contact a travel and tours agency who can assist you).

    Also available are hotels and beach resorts in the towns of Carles and Estancia, where visitors can stay the night before renting a boat to explore the Gigantes islands. When taking this option, it is preferable to stay in mainland Carles (Bancal) because it is closer to Gigantes than Estancia.

    Please note that airline flights may be delayed and make it difficult for you to catch up with the departure time of the motorized boat to Gigantes. So many tourists take their first evening on mainland Iloilo (Carles or Iloilo City) or Roxas City.

    Budget travelers are suggested to get the Joiners Package.
