Blessed with a rich historical legacy dating back to the Spanish era and an untouched forest area, it invokes colorful imaginations of how Grande Island used to be. Come explore Grande as we take you on a journey through its many natural offerings and facilities.

Grande Island is a tourism island estate located in Subic Bay, Philippines. It houses the Grand Island Resort, a property that is operated by GFTG Property Holdings Corporation. Grande Island's total land area is 40 hectares, of which 14.2 hectares are being developed as a world-class resort location. The remaining 25.8 hectares are forest areas. The island is accessible by ferry and is approximately 20 to 30 minutes away from the Subic Bay mainland.

Grande Island holds historical significance as a defense fort that protected the Philippines for four centuries. It was first occupied by the Spanish Empire and in 1885, was fortified as an island fortress together with its port city, Olongapo. Grande Island then became the key to the overall defense of Manila. The Spanish ascertained that if Subic Bay was controlled by an enemy, it could easily be made into a support base which could expedite the attack and captivity of Manila. Photo Credit: nerinakrystel
