Truly Guimaras is a perfect destination for summer. But it is not just finding a perfect summer destination when I was in Guimaras but finding it as an “island that fits your taste.” I discovered exciting island adventures, pockets of gorgeous seascapes, unspoiled beaches, rich marine life and beautiful mornings – all perfect for anyone that is looking for an island that suits any taste. And not just sun worshipping! I had great island adventures despite of worry of getting a rainy weather since I spend this trip during the wet season. But, whether it is summer or rainy season of July, whenever a great sunrise greets your mornings, the sun will always kiss your skin in Guimaras.
