I took these photos during a weekend trip with some hospital buddies last february, but I opted to post them now because yes, summer is finally here!
We went to Guimaras, an island a boat ride away from the busy streets of Iloilo. Aside from its sweet mangoes, this place is also famous for its beautiful beaches!
This time though, we did not go to the usual Guimaras hot spots in Nueva Valencia. Instead, we headed to the slightly undiscovered ruins of the Guisi Lighthouse in Dolores. (I will get to that historic lighthouse on my next post, so consider this a sneak peak, hahaha)
Like the other more famous island of Boracay, Guimaras is dotted with beaches of blue-green waters and white sand. While comparing them may be totally unfair, I think three major things separate them. Guimaras has slightly pebbled shorelines, occasional jellyfish feeding frenzies and a lot of room for improvement on the “night life”. But as a consolation, its a great place to not care about banana boat rides and the rising price of henna tattoos! hahaha
I can almost feel the sand between my toes…yes, summer is officially here!
