Southern tip of Southern Leyte; a 45-minute pumpboat ride from Padre Burgos to the island.
Site of the celebration of the First Christian Mass in the Orient when Ferdinand Magellan came in 1521; historical and cultural viewing of the Magellan Shrine / Marker.
It is also a diver’s paradise. It boasts of magnificent walls and sheer drop-offs decorated with a variety of lovely fan corals which never fails to awe even the most traveled and experienced diver. The island also has sites for novice divers and beginners, as well as excellent reef communities on a gradual slope. It is ideal for open water diving and underwater photography. For the more daring and adventurous, there are numerous holes and cavelets where one may encounter a passing sea snake or a couple of squids.
Best time to visit the island: March to early June/October to December.
Trips can be arranged by the Southern Leyte Governor’s Office or
