My Concepcion Iloilo Trip 2019: A must see!

Hey there! Welcome to my blog!

The following items are according to my personal experience plus facts from the island. I hope this helps for your future travel. Enjoy! 

Concepcion Iloilo islands and beaches are pristine and are underdeveloped. Island life here is very simple and peaceful. Although there are many tourists are coming back and forth in the island, the management has retained the simplicity of life in the island.
