Kalanggaman Island

Kalanggaman Island in Leyte

The place is uninhabited, thus giving a tranquil environment suitable for family vacations or a short weekend getaway. The island is named as such because of its bird-like shape. The term “Langgam” is a Visayan word for “bird.”

 

What To See on the Island

This tourist spot appears like a smaller version of the famous Boracay, but without the major facilities like restaurants and large accommodations. There are also no big resorts on the island, except for the JeTer Resort located on the western side of the island. The resort offers Teepee Huts, restrooms, and a restaurant, plus a wide variety of water sports.

For the comfort of locals and tourists alike, the local government put up the necessary facilities like native huts, several shelters and grilling station, as well as comfort rooms on the island. The safety and security of the visitors are also ensured as there are police and medical stations established on Kalanggaman Island. Aside from that, sari-sari stores are also set up around the site.

 

Things to Do in Kalanggaman Island

The island’s crystal clear and calm water makes the best setting for all kinds of water sports. Both adults and kids can enjoy a good swim and kayaking on all sides of the island. Aqua-biking is another excellent option to explore the corners of Kalanggaman.

For a more exhilarating water adventure, snorkeling and scuba diving are also offered in the place. Scuba divers and snorkeling enthusiasts can expect an underwater paradise filled with soft and hard corals and a wide range of fish species. Visitors can even encounter whale sharks and thresher sharks around the area. Tourists can also camp in the area as there are tent rentals for two to four persons with an additional cost.
