The Dinagat Islands are a group of islands constituting a province in the Caraga region in the Philippines, located on the south side of Leyte Gulf. The island of Leyte is to its west, across Surigao Strait, and Mindanao is to its south. Its main island, Dinagat, is about 60 kilometres (37 mi) from north to south. Declared a province in 2006, the Dinagat Islands comprise the second newest province of the Philippines, with Davao Occidental (2013) being the newest.

The province is known as one of the archipelago’s holiest sites in the Pre-Christian native religion. Although one of the newest provinces of the country, settlements in the Dinagat Islands were already present during the Spanish regime as a result of migration of people from nearby provinces of Bohol and Leyte. The so-called mystical province played an important role in the country’s history, particularly during World War II.
Located to the northeast of Surigao del Norte, the province consists of the eponymous Dinagat Island and surrounding islands and islets. It is known for its caves, resorts, and beaches. – Text from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinagat_Islands
