Discover the many wonders of Leyte on this island-hopping tour of Cuatros Islas and sightseeing of 16,000 Blossoms. If you are craving for both land and water adventure, then this private excursion is just for you.
After being picked up from your accommodation in Leyte, you will arrive at the port in time for your departure to the Cuatros Islas (“Four Islands” in Spanish). This group of islands, composed of Apid, Digyo, Mahaba, and Himokilan, belongs to two different municipalities, Inopacan and Hindang.
You will first be taken to Mahaba Island. As its name suggests, Mahaba Island has a nice long stretch of powdery white sand beach and remarkably clear and crystalline water. Once you arrive here, you will be welcomed by the long sandbar and stunning rock formations, making for a perfect backdrop for photos. Put on your snorkeling gear and enjoy the thriving marine sanctuary below, as well. If you’re lucky, you might see some of the local sea turtles here.
From there, you will be heading to Apid Island. Considered as the most populated island in the group, Apid is a fishing village, where you can immerse yourself in the locals’ culture and way of living. Buy fresh fish and souvenirs or learn pandan stripping and mat weaving from the locals themselves. If you want more adventures, you can also trek in this island.
Head to Digyo Island next. This island is best known for its sandbar that stretches about 50 meters. Go sunbathing in its white powdery sands or explore the island’s turtle nesting site. You can also enjoy snorkeling and reef diving here. Lunch will be served in Digyo before you head over to Himokilan Island.
Known to be one of the richest reefs in the region, Himokilan Island is a marine sanctuary, making it perfect for diving, snorkeling, and swimming. Feel free to go on a nature trekking and cave adventure around the island, as well. You will then head back to mainland Leyte to cap off your day with a visit to 16,000 Blossoms. Go around Leyte’s mountain-top garden and take photos of the 16,000 red and white LED lights forming the phrases “I love Baybay.”
