DIY Itinerary is always been like a gamble. Like you will never know what you are going to face when you arrived at your destination. Well, not in Guimaras Island!

Annual trip with the squad! Meet Neil and Carissa - they are couple and basically I never feel I was third-wheel to them because both of them are my friends.Well, we missed Rod in this trip. He's from Iloilo, but he has other planned trip. 

The island is organized by logging in your names in their record book as visitors and they recommend you a driver and tricycle to tour you around the island for PHP1500! It's a good deal!

Here are the Top Guimaras Tourist Spots on the island:

Navalas Church

It is the oldest existing Roman Catholic Church in the Province of Guimaras that has survived the ravages of time; built in 1880-1885.  A bigger bell that was more than four feet tall, formerly hang at the belfry was carted away and dumped into the sea near Isla del Siete Pecados by Muslim raiders.  Only the fa├žade remain untouched. source

Roca Encantada

The Lopez Family (of ABS-CBN) owns Roca Encantada – a mansion that welcomes paying guests. Our guide said this house appeared in several TV shows and movies. You can’t enter the master bedroom but you’re allowed to roam the lawn and take tons of selfies outside the house.

No tripod, but I used the tree-pod.

San Lorenzo Guimaras Windmill 

We had an up-close view of the windmill. It was too hot to have photos under it. 

Lunch Time

Guimaras Mango Plantation

Here is where Guimaras produces its world-famous mangoes. You'll appreciate ... Guimaras trip is not complete if u don't see their mango plantation and if you know the movie "Forevermore" of Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa. This is where they shot the film. 

Trappist Monastery Guimaras

The Trappist Monastery grounds is a peaceful and sacred enclave in Guimaras run by monks of the Cistercian Order of the Strict Observance. These monks follow the rule of St. Benedict and are best known for the extreme austerity or strictness that chara.

Guisi Point Lighthouse

The Guisi Lighthouse is an 18th-century Spanish-colonial lighthouse built beside the beach. It was built to guide mariners passing the Iloilo and Guimaras Strait.

Guisi Beach

Guisi Beach may not have powdery white sand, but its rugged beachscape, aquamarine waters, and rock formations are what make it charming. Often included with a trip to the lighthouse, this is a noteworthy stop for those who want to see more of Guimaras. It is an ideal place to rest, relax, and unwind after wading in its waters or taking countless photos.
