The Islas de Gigantes or Gigantes Islands in Iloilo is one of them. Teeming with immaculate white sand beaches, mystical caves, and majestic rock formations among its long list of natural wonders, this has all the makings of an under-the-radar tropical destination.

The in-house Angga Restaurant serves delicious, traditional Ilonggo breakfast specialties from Carles such as Dilis or Fish Tapa served with a cup of garlic rice. Filipino favorites like Pork Sinigang, Chicken Pork Adobo, and Tinolang Manok are some of their must-tries as well!
