Relaxing Day in Guimaras Beach Resort

Guimaras is an island province in Philippines, located in the Western Visayas region. This wonder of nature is definitely one of my favorite island getaway spots. Although it is a province with a capital called Jordan and it a has a couple of ports and has more than 162 000 habitats, it still haven’t lost it’s natural beauty. Its remarkably beautiful scenery is unspoiled and the air is so fresh here due to the fact there are so many trees here. Guimaras could be described as a green island or even islands since the province consists not only of Guimaras Island, but also includes Inampulugan, Guiwanon (or Guiuanon), Panobolon, Natunga, Nadulao, and many minor surrounding islands.
