NEGROS ISLAND

Negros, our distinctive sock-shaped-island, sits between Cebu and Panay islands of the Visayas.

You may have heard the island is known for its vast sugarcane fields; monolithic cane mills that process and supply most of the sugar in the Philippines; sweet delicacies, of course; and awe-inspiring ancestral homes that transport visitors to a bygone past of horse-drawn carriages, steam trains, and colorful history.

This is all true, but the island has so much more to offer and we invite you to explore Negros and discover its wonder and natural beauty – dive into azure waters with vast coral reefs teeming with life; hike limestone forests, visit world-renowned sanctuaries and conservation foundations; swim in cool pools of waterfalls and winding rivers; and, experience Negrense hospitality.
