BILIRAN ATTRACTIONS

 

 

Imagine gently sloping rice terraces forming the shape of an amphitheater, waterfalls that drop to refreshing pools where you can enjoy a dip, barbecue stalls along the wharf facing the sunset, and warm locals escorting you to tiny islands surrounded by white sugary beaches and amazing view of the mountains.

Blessed with fertile volcanic soil, Biliran is mainly an agricultural province situated north of Leyte, Philippines. Previously part of the bigger Leyte province, it became independent in 1992 establishing the town of Naval as its capital. Yet even today, many people haven’t heard much about it, making travelers clueless about what there is to see and explore.    Read More:  http://insights.looloo.com/biliran-island-visayas/

The family decided to go to Kasabangan as recommended by our relatives and we went there in March 2016. It was a 20 minute hike from the highway. The sun’s scorching heat was unforgiving, but the hike was enjoyable because I was with my family and relatives and we were making fun of each other. The view along the way up was very helpful, we made a few stops to rest and to take pictures because the contrast of greens and blue seas and sky was just mesmerizing.

Kasabangan Falls is a quiet place to relax with the family and the waters are so cold! We were told not to expect a high end place, and it was indeed a very simple falls, with concrete bleachers on each side where groups can set up tables, grill food, and eat. There were around 10 people in the place when we got there, but it was fine because there was enough space for all of us. Future tourists, just please bring garbage bags when going and make sure you don’t leave trash behind.  Read More:  https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g612370-d1568856-Reviews-Kasabangan_Falls-Biliran_Island_Visayas.html#REVIEWS
