Sicogon Island is one of the many beautiful attractions that grace the waters of Northern Iloilo. Sicogon became a popular tourist destination during the 70s and 80s because of the high-end resort suitably named “Sicogon Island Resort” operating in the island.
At present, there may not be any luxurious accommodations or amenities in Sicogon but travelers can still visit the island to enjoy its picturesque sandy beaches, virgin forests, and alluring waters.
The sandy beach lining the coast of Brgy. Buaya is (arguably) the best swimming beach in Sicogon Island. It was once the setting for the seaside pavilion of Sicogon Island Resort.
The opulent structures of the resort are long gone. Instead, tall coconut trees and nipa hut dwellings of locals now dominate the landscape.
