Sol y Mar: a Beach Resort Close to Iloilo City
Sol y Mar is a beach resort in Tigbauan, on the National Highway, about 20 KM west of Iloilo City. While we have not stayed there overnight, we did visit, had coffee (brewed) and looked at the cottages. It's certainly one of the best options for those who want stay at a real beach resort, one good enough for swimming but still close to the urban amenities of Iloilo City. It's also a good option for those in Iloilo City who want to get away to the beach. You can come and use the beach for a P30 per person (P20 for children). You can rent a very nice picnic shelter for the day for P300 or you can rent an air con cottage for P1400 to P1500. The cottages are nicely designed and the entire resort quite meticulously maintained. The restaurant is open from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. You can get there via a Tigbauan, Guimbal or Miagao jeepney or by taxi. Phone: 033-511-8288 Mobile: 0919-891-4555.

WW II Panay Landing Memorial, Parara, Tigbauan, Iloilo
The Panay Landing Memorial marks spot where American troops landed on March 18, 1945 on the beaches of Parara, Tigbauan to begin the liberation of Panay Island. The Japanese garrison on Panay was only 2000 to 2350 soldiers. American soldiers came ashore to be greeted by Philippine guerrillas "stiff in starched khaki and resplendent in ornaments." By the time American troops landed, the well-organized resistance fighters were in control of most of the island.
The American 40th Division expanded the beachhead rapidly and ran into no serious resistance until it approached the outskirts of Iloilo City. On March 20th the troops entered Iloilo City and not one Japanese was found.
