Philippines is a country of islands, seas, rivers, mountains and different resources that every men can visit and experience. Last weekend, a group of travelers and Bloggers ( special mention to my friend couple of AdrenalineRomance.com ) went to this famous paradise in the Visayas which the Province of Leyte is very proud of. It is called Kalanggaman Island. Specifically located offshore of Palompon Leyte, Kalanggaman Island is the best island that the Province can offer. Originally, Kalanggaman Island has SandBars in the Left and Right side that forms a pair of wings (if you see it above or bird's eye view) , thus it is called Kalanggaman or local term of "Bird". But due to typhoon Yolanda that hit the country in November of 2013, the Left wing vanished. Anyhow, this Leyte's treasure does still exist with it's natural beauty that left all Tourists amazed.

Kalanggaman Island has fine sandbars which gives you a clearer and astonishing view of Sunrise. Not to mention its clear water Beach which is good for snorkeling, kayaking and other water activities, this paradise can also give you a romantic view of the Sky at night. Just a heads up, the island cannot offer you electricity but this is an advantage to every Local or Foreign Tourists since it can give way to your team or group's bonding and camaraderie. And if you go there with your "baby love", then the tranquility at Night is a nice starter to be more affectionate to your partners! (wink)

How to Get there? Normally, if you come from Cebu, you just need to take the SuperCat or Weesam Express from Cebu's Pier going to ormoc Port. The Ferry ride takes 2 hours, then you can take a van going to Palompon or ask details from Tourism office via Contacts below.
