“In My Top 10 Small Island Destinations in the Philippines (Best Destination in the Province of Leyte)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

In the middle of Cebu and Leyte, this island is perfect of relaxation. In this part of the Philippines, one will encounter the country's clearest waters. This island is perhaps the most beautiful island in the Philippines that existed and formed from once a usual sandbar in the middle of the sea. Yes, the island is flat. It is blessed with beautiful corals and is surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches with long stretches of sandbars to the north and to the south. Its western side is uniquely guarded by flat rocks which is good for swimming and has an exceptional effect one cannot find somewhere else. The Municipality of Palompon managing this tourist attraction is one of the country's best when it comes to protecting and taking care of a beautiful seascape.

Thanks to the people of Palompon and thank You God for this Great Gift!
