Guimaras Island in the Philippines has the world's greatest mangoes and if you don't believe me, just ask anyone from Guimaras.
But there is much more in Guimaras than mangoes. The beaches are also stunning and there are resorts for every budget. The underwater caves are remarkable and tropical fish in their millions flock there probably having heard of the mangoes.
My favourite place is the Trappist Monastery where you can sit and be at peace with the chanting of the monks in the background. The Trappist also make the most delicious guava jelly and they have also added to the list of products that are world championship class. So, put Guimaras on your life-time bucket list.
From the Iloilo airport in Cabatuan, by taxi, it is about 45 minutes to reach the Ortiz and Parola wharf where you can take a quick boat to sunny Guimaras (Jordan wharf). There's a boat every 30 minutes and the crossing to the island only takes 15 minutes.
Plan to stay a few days so you can eat and drink mangoes in every possible form and get some beach time and diving in before you have to leave heaven.
