Map of the Fifth District of the Province of IloiloDesired for its kilometers of beautiful coastline, the northern portion of the province offers the best possibilities for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Its island-hopping activities are serenely set in a sea whose waters range from palest aquamarine and turquoise to deepest sapphire and lapis lazuli and are treaded by an unbroken line of white sand. They are linked to the mainland by motorized banca from its municipal port.

A whole row of resorts are found in the area. One can also take a few interesting day trips in the eastern central portion of Iloilo Province to see historical sites and structures such as churches as well as natural underground spaces such as caves. Transport connections within the northern and eastern central portions of Iloilo Province are fairly good.
