Kalanggaman Island: A Breathtaking Paradise in Leyte

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Crystal clear water, white sand and unspoiled island - these are just my words when I saw Kalanggaman Island. Located in Palompon, Leyte, this island is yet another paradise.

About 2 to 3 hours travel time from Tacloban Airport by land and another 1 hour boat ride you’ll be able to see what Leyte has to be proud of. If you are travelling by group of 7 and up there are vans outside the airport for hire going directly to Palompon proper with reasonable rent prices.

I noticed that Palompon Tourism Office is well organized in people going in the island. Before we depart, they oriented us about rules and regulations in the island including waste management, they even gave us two colored big plastics to separate wastes from non-biodegradable and biodegradable. I must say that it is well maintained and not abused. Hooray for the management!

We planned to stay overnight in the lovely island so when we got in there in the afternoon, two groups of day tour beach bummers were already packing up. Yep! We were the only group that time exploring the island; it's like owning the paradise for a time. We rented a cottage and a bigger hut for overnight.

Be reminded that you have to bring your own food since there are no stores available in the island, you can do barbeques too, the caretakers provided us with concrete grill to use, just bring your own charcoal.

It is more beautiful than when I was seeing it in pictures as I was looking at it candidly. The stretch of fine and white sand is really relaxing in our feet, oh how I loved to lie down under the clear sky. Its sandbar is one of a kind making our walks along this paradise eased.

The color of the water is so inviting. Kalanggaman Island offers a clear turquoise colored water alluring us to jump in under the sunny weather. Beach bummers will surely be in loved with this pleasing island.

What an awesome way to finish the day with this wonderful sunset! 

What a relaxing way to spend your vacay here in Kalanggaman. No wonder this island is making its noise as one of the most anticipated summer destination by beach goers.

Truly these photos can't justify the island's wondrous beauty.
