“Outstanding yet infrequently visited”
Review of Dalutan Island

Dalutan Island
Ranked #2 of 5 things to do in Naval
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 January 2013

Staying at Agta Beach Resort (which suffered from constant karaoke noise at night from the adjacent VRC Beach Resort (not Agta's fault), we hired a boat for P700 with two boatmen who arrived at 0900 as the tide had begun to come in (there is a sanbar 50 to 100 metres from shore).

The trip across in placid waters took 20 minutes and had turquiose seas (the best!)

The island has a 150 to 200 metre white sand beach facing Agta Resort on Biliran Island; the island takes less than five minutes to circumnavigate by boat. The sand is largelycomfortable on which to walk.

The owner (an engineer) has installed some lovely shaded picnic benches (supposedly P150 to rent) and huts (P200) but no one was around so we were not charged. One could bring across lunch as the island 'closes' at 1700 hours daily.

There is a toilet for each sex but I did not use. They looked older than the picnic structures.

The snorkelling was good about two metres off shore while my friend caught a tropical fish that we later released back into its sea home. The stones in the sea are not sharp although I had my usual indispensible reefshoes.

This was a lovely island to visit, yet we were alone.
