Digyo Island

Digyo Island is the smallest among the four islands of Cuatro Islas. Too small that one could circumnavigate or walk completely around the islet in less than half an hour. This is the obvious reason why the island is called Digyo, from the old Cebuano word digyot meaning “little.” 

This islet is uninhabited by human and is a protected sanctuary of diverse marine lives thriving in coral reefs. It has been told that the whole islet is a private property of a well known family in Inopacan. 

It remains undeveloped with a few number of dispersed coconut trees growing around. A huge mass of white sands was illegally hauled off in 1980’s by the quarrying business of an alleged contractor who delivered the sacks of white sand to a prestigious hotel in Cebu City for use in landscaping. Despite the considerable loss of white sands, the islet still has a magnificent view, a crystal clear pristine seawater, and white sandbar that glares on bright sunlight . 

What is now missing is the what used to be a much longer and wider beachfront. Occasionally, a handful of local picnickers and their guests would come on-board a motorboat to spend a day of enjoying the delight of nature’s beauty.  Read More:  http://inopacan.blogspot.com/2010/02/digyo-island.html

Guinsohotan Cave and Falls are located in Cagnituan, Maasin, Southern Leyte, Philippines. It has clear waters good for swimming and picnicking. Busay Falls is also nearby.  Together with the Cagnituan Lagoon, they are just within the Capital City of Maasin, it is one of the most visited nature sites because of its twin experience, the cave with its subterranean river and the inviting pool of the water falls.

The Guinsohotan Cave is a large subterranean cave, 15 km from the city center and 276 meters above sea level. Those who do enter the cave by wading or swimming can find small “in-cave” waterfalls, bats and impressive rock formations.

The water coming out of Guinsuhotan Cave flows down in cascades to form a natural lagoon, Cagnituan Lagoon, frequently visited by bathers and patrons of cool therapeutic treatment. These two sights, which belong more or less together, are placed in Barangay Cagnituan and can be reached from Barangay Maria Clara by using a Habal-habal.
