A Quick Visit To Canigao Island of Matalom Leyte

by - 10:25 AM

On an early Sunday morning, Cousins, friends and I visited the beautiful Islet of Canigao, near the municipality of Matalom Leyte. As what I heard from Bloggers and friends, Canigao won't fail your expectations as what an island should look like - and I mean, Canigao Island has white sands covering the seashore, some green trees enough to complement that powdery sands and of course, if you didn't know, during low tides, you will probably love to stay on its mini-sandbar which extends far from the seashore.

So, wanna know HOW TO GET TO CANIGAO ISLAND? (Base on our Experience)

1. If you are from Cebu, take the Shipping Service from Cebu to Hilongos ( PHP 250-350.00 , Economy of Roble Shipping )
2. From Hilongos Port, take a cycle rickshaw or trisikad going to Highway ( PHP 15-20.00 )
3. From the Highway, take a Jeep going to Matalom ( PHP 30-40.00 )
4. From Matalom Highway, walk to Matalom Port going to Canigao Island
4. From Canigao island port, list down your name and pay for pumpboat fare (back and forth) ( PHP 95.00 - 50 for fare and 45 for entrance fee which includes use of comfort room, shower room and island maintenance)
