Kalanggaman Island is located in Palompon, Leyte. The bird-shaped island got its name from “langgam”, a local word which means bird. Kalanggaman Island is one of the renowned island destinations in the Philippines, popular for its white powdery sand beach and crystal clear waters. It also offers a lot of activities like swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and kayaking.
The 750-meter-long island is also frequented by divers from Malapascua Island in Cebu, which is two hours away by boat. Underneath the island is a bed of marine sanctuary composed of a variety of fishes and a beautiful coral wall with soft and hard corals. What sets it apart from other beaches in the country is its simple and relaxing vibe, which is what pulls tourists to visit the island.
Despite its fame, the island remains to be uncommercialized due to the strict policies that the local government has implemented. But to be able to cater to the guests of the island, the government built basic facilities like toilets, changing rooms, cottages, and a multi-purpose hall. There are no resorts in Kalanggaman Island, so only camping is the option when one wants to stay for a night.
Only a limited number of tourists are also allowed per day. Safety is also ensured by the local government as tourist police are stationed in Kalanggaman. Only entrance fees are included in this package, rental fees and other expenses are excluded.
