One of my online friends here asked me what beautiful places to visit in Guimaras Island. I did research online since I just visited few of the cool places around. I love to explore the whole Guimaras too. Someday I will.
Mojo, here's the things to do and see in Guimaras
I was posted my Guimaras journey last March during the Holy week. I climbed to Balaan Bukid(Holy mountain) with my kikay Friend, Imee. There are still beautiful places in Guimaras.
A pumpboat will take you from Ortiz to Jordan wharf for bout 15 minutes. Then take a multicab from Jorda wharf to Raymen Beach Cottages. It is popularly known as Alubihod beach in Nueva Valencia. It is the cheaper beach resort to stay. Rent a pumpboat @ Alubihod if you want to experience island hopping. It range from 500-700 hundred (ask for a discount) for first 3 hours and 150 pesos per hour for the next hours(if you want to extend). There are breath-taking island to visit like:
Baras Beach Resort in Brgy. Lawi, Jordan
Isla Naburot Resort in Sinapsapan, Jordan
Sta. Maria Island
Nagarao Island Resort in Sibunag(quite far though)
Costa Aguada Island Resort in Sibunag.
There are some caves too. And the man-made SEAFDEC Research Station in Bgy. Magamay, Nueva Valencia.
Don't forget to drop by in Trappist Monastery in Brgy. San Miguel, Jordan. It is the only Trappist Monastery in the Philippines.
The other municipality of Guimaras is Buenavista where the El Retiro Resort is Located. Visit the Navalas Church located on Navalas. It is the oldest existing Roman Church in the province that survived the ravages of time.
There are a lot of beautiful places to visit. I have been in Guisi Resort in Nueva Valencia sometime in 2002. I wish to go back there again someday. It is well developed and the government is promoting the place now.
JUST ENJOY YOUR STAY IN GUIMARAS!
