HOW TO GO THERE?

How To Get To Gigantes Islands

The Gigantes Islands are part of the municipality of Carles, the northernmost town of Iloilo province in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. It is located less than 20 km northeast of Carles town proper across the Visayan Sea. The main jump-off points in going to Gigantes Islands are the towns of Carles and Estancia (also a town of Iloilo). These two municipalities can be reached by land from Roxas City, Iloilo City (capital of the province of Iloilo), and Boracay. Roxas City (Capiz Province) is the nearest city from the town of Carles.

From Manila to Roxas City (by air)

The quickest route to Gigantes Islands, if you are coming from Manila, is a short flight to Roxas Airport. Daily flights from the NAIA Terminals in Pasay City to Roxas City are offered by PAL and Cebu Pacific.

From Roxas City, you can take a van ride to Bancal Port in Carles. The trip may take less than one-and-half-hour (1.5 hours) of a well-paved road via the Iloilo East Coast- Capiz Road through the Calasan-Carles Road. When you arrived at the Bancal Port in Carles, there are several pump boats or outriggers where you can ride together with other tourists. The trip from Bancal Port to Gigantes Islands takes about two hours.

If you are booked on an organized tour, your team will be picked up from your hotel in Roxas City or Iloilo City (usually via a spacious van) where a ready boat is waiting for you at the port to take you to the Gigantes Islands. This set up is more convenient and relaxing.

If you will be originating from Iloilo City (whether you are billeted on a hotel there or from the Iloilo International Airport), there are buses (Ceres Liner) and vans stationed at the city’s Tagbak Terminal in the Jaro District of the city. You can fetch a taxi from the airport that will take you to the bus terminal.

If you take the bus, the fare usually ranges between P170-P180 (per passenger) one way. The trip to may take 3-4 hours before you reach Estancia Port, the gateway to Gigantes Islands from this town.
