Unspoiled, remote , a breather – that’s what this island is all about. If you happen to be backpacking around Dapitan or Dipolog, a night camp in the island is highly recommended. The beach is fine and white while the water is clear and full of marine life so do not forget your snorkelling gear or you’ll miss half of... More

aliguay Island is the Island that's infront of Dipolog Sunset Boulevard, you couldn't see with your own naked eyes though, but its there. The Island is very poorly managed, no clean water available. They have to filter their drinking water from the sea... So when served, you can literally smell dead fish on your water. Their Swimming Pool is terrible,... More

Aliguay is a small island located about an hour away by speed boat from Dakak Beach Resort in Dapitan. Due to its remote location, only few tourists are able to visit this wonderful island. The island is inhabited with a small number of Zamboangenos. Going there is a bit tricky though, you need to charter a speed boat or a... More

Aliguay is a small island just off the cost of Dipolog City, Philippines and Dapitian, Philippines. Our ride to the island was via a local fishing boat we rented at the Dipolog City jetty/fishing area just off the Boulevard. We asked several fishermen about taking us, and we were directed to a nice fisherman and his companion. They were leaving... More

I have visited this island several times and it never fails to amaze me. We were able to rent a boat and went around the island and did snorkeling. Furthermore, the residents are very accommodating and helpful to tourists. For me, it is a great place for adventure and fun under the sun!

Great visibility more than 25m horizontally full stretch of corals. From bottom looked up, one is greeted by the sun. The last thing I recalled as I looked back... More

Boracay seems so crowdy with foreigners and all. Boracay's advantage is providing elites and everyone good hotels to stay and all that. But Aliguay Island can be your own once you visit. Quite untouched and wasa virgin island. Not crowdey. Good for Barkada's who loves to set up those tents, barbecues, grab some beer and enjoy the nature at its... More

Aliguay is part of Dapitan City. I went there with my fiancé. We rent the motor boat in the amount of P3750 a bit expensive but it's worth it. From Dakak beach resort we sailed the sea with a motor boat. It will take you an hour or two to reach the island. Though when we travel it's a little... More

I hired a medium sized bangka (boat) from Dakak Park resort for the high price of P3750, lunch not included. Earlier, I had flown from Manila on Cebu Pacific to Dipolog City and been transported by a shutrtle van (45 minutes) thanks to the usual good value asia travel (dot) com deal. It took 70 minutes to reach the island... More
