Us-Usan Island: Guimaras

After having a pleasant lunch in Nagarao, we decided to hire a boat to explore the surrounding islands of Nagarao. There was this one island that the staff recommended, Us-usan Island.


As soon as I saw a strip of sand glistening from a distance, I knew we were in for a treat. Us-usan Island. The water wasn't as clear though as in Nagarao and in most of Guimaras.


The sand bar jutting out of the island seemed like a catwalk on the sea. This provided a nice swimming area for the island's visitors as well.


We began to explore the island, hoping to circle it in less than an hour. The island has a narrow shoreline, probably because it was high tide. There were also foliage all around, so it was quite a struggle going around.


We were treated though with amazing views of the sea. This tree was alone and offshore for around 100 meters. It was quite strange to see a single tree in full bloom in the middle of the sea.


After 15 minutes of walking, we arrived at a mangrove area. There were buds peeking out of the water among the grown ones.


The entire island seemed dry, and there were a lot of plants with thorns. We really felt like castaways in a deserted island.



There were beaches after beaches of white sand in small coves. The sand was finer here than in Nagarao. The beaches weren't as swimmable though, since there were a lot of rocks.



We ended up in circling the island under an hour. It was hot and humid, but the rugged beauty of Us-usan was enough for us to care about those. We ended our tour swimming by the sand bar. Us-usan Island may not have a jaw dropping landscape or beach, but it is sure perfect for those who want to feel thousands of miles away from civilization.

  3. I've been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's beautiful value enough
    for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you
    did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.

  4. I leave a comment when I especially enjoy a post on
    a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to
    the conversation. Usually it's triggered by the fire communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article "Us-Usan Island: Guimaras". I was moved enough to write a thought ;) I actually do have a few questions for you if you don't mind.
    Is it simply me or do some of the remarks come across like they are left
    by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to
    follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list all of your social pages
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
