Had fun enjoying the different sights at the Villa Igang Beach Resort in Guimaras island. We only stayed there for a couple of hours as we had another set of places to visit during our day tour of the island. However, I wish we could’ve stayed longer.
Villa Igang Beach Resort
Alubihod, Nueva Valencia
under talisay trees.
There were just too many scenes aside from those pigeons in Villa Igang that I wish we had more time to spare so we could relax and enjoy the moment.

Kuya Jun (our driver/guide) recommended this resort as it was less crowded. When we got there, we were the only people there sans for the caretakers. We were able to see some caves as well as jump off a cliff
Aside from the beach, the resort has a butterfly garden, beautiful rock formations and caves. You can also spend the night on cottages that were set up for tourists.
swimming in clear waters – peace y’all
Being a beach bum, I long for places wherein I can just lounge under the sun. How lucky were we that the weather was sunny. Though there was a slight downpour, it only lasted for a few minutes.
dark cave – is there a bright cave?
It was nice to see the caves and the rock formations and this part reminded me of Magpupunko Lagoon in Siargao because of how clear the waters were.
We goofed around because we had the place all to ourselves even just for a few hours. It was eerie inside the cave but I guess that’s how caves are.
Gollum – tried to become eerie too
Kuya Jun took us to another side of the resort where we saw the beauty of this part of the island. After a few steps, we saw a grotto, a cliff and shrubs.

The setting reminds me of stories in the Bible where people gather around to reflect and just talk to each other; maybe share a parable or two. Surely one can think and ponder because of how peaceful the location was.
reminds me of parables
I'm not entirely sure which part of Guimaras Island did the infamous oil spill happen but looking at the water makes one really sad if that were to happen again. I'm glad that they were able to overcome that tragedy.
couldn’t hide my smile
I couldn’t contain myself that I decided to jump and swim. I wanted to jump from a higher point but I wasn’t sure if the water was deep enough so I cancelled the thought and opted for the safer alternative.
Edwin came from the restaurant, charging his camera battery, when he called us as lunch was already prepared. However, as soon as he saw me swimming, he immediately jumped as well. Doi would've joined us in the water but the food already beckoned.
I had a slight difficulty climbing up since there were no stairs available but it didn’t bother me; I enjoyed the sea. I’m glad I dipped myself in the water because this was the last time that we saw the place. We visited Guimaras island a couple of days after but we weren’t able to come back to the resort.
How To Get to Villa Igang Beach Resort
From the port of Jordan, there are a number of tricycle/jeepney drivers looking for passengers. You can hire one of those trikes/jeeps to take you to the place.

I scratched myself (again) when I tried to lie on rocks inside the cave. Now why did I lie down? Just because I felt like it. It hurt a lot because I couldn’t force myself up and not put pressure on my back. Hence, I accumulated some red marks; it didn’t matter as they were only temporary.
