Kalanggaman Island (or Calanggaman Island) in Palompon, Leyte, isn’t exactly a well-kept secret. Those in the so-called travel circle have known about this quiet, unassuming island for years. But for some reason, it had never really created that big a buzz the way destinations like Palaui, Caramoan or Calaguas have. And that may be a very good thing if that means not disturbing its almost untouched beauty.

Kalanggaman is 753m long, fringed with sparkling white sand that gets hugged by the turquoise waters that separate Cebu and Leyte. What sets this uninhabited island apart from the others is its long, long sandbar that stretches and sticks out to the sea.  Read More:  https://www.philippinebeaches.org/calanggaman-island-drone-video-aerial-palompon-leyte/

 

Lake Danao

Lake Danao is located inside the Lake Danao Natural Park in the Province of Leyte. It is 650 meters above sea level and is shaped like a side-view of an acoustic guitar.  The lake is situated on an elevation similar to Tagaytay, thus, giving a cool gentle wind when you’re in the area and, just like the Taal Lake in Tagaytay, it was formed after a volcanic eruption.

Lake Danao was formerly called as Lake Imelda. On February 3, 1998 it was renamed and declared as Lake Danao National Park and is protected by the National Integrated Protected Area System Act of 1992.  The lake takes an important role to the province. It supplies water for irrigation to rice fields and potable, drinking water to the different towns of Eastern Leyte.  Lake Danao National Park is one of the top tourist destinations in Ormoc City. If you’re looking for a relaxing place perfect for meditation and at the same time breathe some fresh air, Lake Danao is a must-visit place!  Read More:  http://www.choosephilippines.com/go/water-forms/4285/lake-danao-ormoc-leyte

 

Limasawa Island

Limasawa is a municipality on an island of the same name in Southern Leyte. Though it was not as touristy as the Chocolate Hills or the Magellan’s Cross, it’s fast becoming popular for its dive sites and historical value. If you could remember, it is on this island where Ferdinand Magellan held the first mass in the Philippines, a game-changer in the country.

Aside from snorkeling and diving, you can check out the shrine of the first mass in the Philippines where you can learn more about our history, how Christianity started in the country, and even about disputes between Limasawa and Butuan on where the first mass was originally held. There is a tour guide stationed on the shrine who can give you facts and figures about Magellan’s voyage to the Philippines.

After checking out the shrine, you might want to check out the spot where Magellan erected a cross in the Philippines for the first time. It will require endurance as you will have to go up through 450 steps. Prepare your legs!!!  Read More:  http://www.matetreyes.com/2016/02/southern-leyte-diaries-part-4.html
