Himokilan Island

Himokilan Island in Leyte

Photo by East Visayan Tour and Events

Aside from boasting spotless white sand, this island is also known for its unique shape, as it resembles a giant boot when seen from above. The island is also home to a small village similar to the one found in neighboring Apid Island. 

A few steps from the beach, you can find lush forests fronted by palm trees. And on the side of the island sits a humble cove that features striking karst formations and powdery white sand. You can also take the time to explore the waters here, as the cove also serves as the local marine sanctuary of the island. 

Apart from beachside activities, travelers can also go on treks here since the island has a hilly terrain perfect for curious minds. At the top of the trekking trail, you'll be rewarded with a panoramic view of the ocean and the neighboring islands that make up the Cuatro Islas. 


Best time to visit

As the island is a popular island-hopping destination, it's best to plan a trip here in the dry season (December to May) to enjoy the white sand beach and blue waters with less rainfall.
