Guimaras is not really well known to tourists when it comes to beautiful beaches and Islands in Visayas but did you know that there are still lots of beautiful and undiscovered beaches and island here in Guimaras? Which is all the more reason to get there before they’re discovered.

Guimaras – a short hop (via fiber or Roro) across the Iloilo Strait from bustling Iloilo City - is known by Filipinos for its sweetest mangoes and not much else. It’s never been a major tourist draw, but these days, that’s changing as the island draws visitors to its beautiful white-sand fringed islands.

What makes Guimaras attractive to visitors is the number of satellite islands around it, many located off its southeast coast. They have exotic names such as Nao-wai and Nalunga. Some of these islands are so sparsely populated you don't get to see a soul, while some have thriving villages. Most have fine beaches and lush hinterlands for trekking.

ONE OF THESE ISLANDS IS US-USAN ISLAND.

The mobile signal was spotty and there's no electricity so it's really best for those who wanted to have a peaceful visit. If you are looking for a place that is so peaceful you can visit this Island. There is only one house in front of the Islan and if you wanted to stay for a night, you can just bring some tents for your stay.

Beside the island is an island called "Inampulugan". An island that shape is like a crocodile with a viewing deck perched on top. There are mangroves and Hawksbill turtles. In the village, there’s a reminder of the island’s history, the remains of a World War II bunker used by occupying Japanese forces. Other day trips include ruins from the Spanish and American eras, including Guisi Lighthouse, an eighteenth century Spanish lighthouse near the beautiful Guisi Beach and, back on Guimaras itself, the remains of the United States Army cantonment, Camp Jossman, once home to the 19th US infantry Regiment and two battalions of Philippine Scouts.

Us-Usan is mysterious and enticing, a slither of land that’s said to be home to only one family, who live Crusoe-esque style near a dazzling white sand beach with a magnificent sandbar. The more you see, the more there remains to be seen, so I make a mental note to return.

Everytime the direction of the wind changes the formation of the Sandbar in Us-Usan also changes. Sometimes it's shape is like a swimming pool and sometimes it's just a straight line from where the boats arrive.

ou can do different recreational activities in Us-Usan Island.

There are still lots of undiscovered and infamous islands and beaches in Guimaras but once you try to visit our Province and do an island hopping, you'll see that Guimaras is not just a home of the sweetest mango in the world, but it's also a simple paradise full of beautiful beaches and small islands.
