Another Guimaras Beach Haven

Apr 27, 2011 by

Before hitting the world-famous Boracay for the Holy Week, our friends Glenn Sy (from KL) and Niccolo Cosme (visionary photographer) stopped by Iloilo with a clear purpose of visiting Guimaras Island. When we set foot on the island province, the kind tourist officer suggested our route and rented a minicab for 1,200 bucks.

We had lunch at Raymens Beach Resort (quite a major tourist stop for its white sand and seafood) and headed our way to the best discovery of the weekend: Guisi Point Lighthouse. The trail to the lighthouse offered an almost instantaneously breathtaking view of the sea facing West. There were two old lighthouses, one old and one new. The rustic feel of the lighthouse ruins pose itself as a wrought down drama for photographic backdrop. Plus the view of the sea, of course. The vandalism tampering destroyed the complete aesthetics of the place, but nevertheless it was still an etching remnant of stories past.

The hilltop view of the sea welcomes you to the Guisi Point Lighthouse. Breathtaking.

The Guisi Point ruins and the old lighthouse. Rustic and soiled.

On the lighthouse's edge. Reminds me of Santorini in Greece.

Documenting the ruins.

After looking around the lighthouse, we took a steep path walk down to the beach of Guisi Point. The sand is mostly of pebbles and the water is so pristine you can see what”s beneath. The shore is separated by some coral rocks between the strip and they are best for pictures. I came unprepared as I had work hours before the unplanned trip to Guimaras. But after seeing what was right in front me — the beach, the sand, the sun — I took off my clothes and dove into the water like a 5-year old kid. Who would not be in this view?

How to forget all your problems in the world? Be here. At least for a moment.

We went home just before sunset. It was one very worthy, sunny, lovely afternoon in Guimaras.
