Apo Island Dive Resort

Apo Island, being a marine sanctuary, is a popular dive spot. In fact, the island was listed on the 2008 version of Sport Diver Magazine’s top 100 diving spots in the world.

kalanggaman island

Even the sun wasn’t up yet, I already noticed the unusual gloom. Clouds hovered really low, and the intermittent drizzles didn’t seem favorable. From afar, I could hardly draw the horizon as it was blurred by the draping downpour. The gale warning signal issued by a local climate authority discouraged the plan further. I was never reluctant to travel to Ormoc, though. I had plan B in mind—that whenever we Read more

And as the corally feature morphed to sand, the 6-feet looked more like a knee deep. Pandanon island, by Read more

Carnaza Island

One Friday eve, I went to Cebu’s port and boarded a ferry bound for Palompon, Leyte. Everything happened on random, and I had no fix itinerary in mind. But what I had been thinking that moment was spending a beach camp in Kalanggaman, an island floating off the coast of the boat’s destination. Short Introduction of my Random Trip The dawn chilled a bit as I walk around Palompon. The town was Read more
