How to Go to Kalanggaman Island
Kalanggaman Island is a small, white sand island that is still considered a part of the small town in Leyte, Palompon. In going there, you have to ride a small boat that will take you around 15 minutes ride only in going there.
Kalanggaman Island is already known in the whole Visayas. You will go there and you will really need a good camera as you will miss out how beautiful the place is without your camera.
The island is mostly of white sand. Only one side though is viable for swimming but the entire island is truly picturesque.

The Beautiful Island of Kalanggaman
How was the Experience there?
Totally amazing and totally breathtaking. I got the summer tan is just minutes under the sun.
You can have a lot of activities over there, Kayak, boat riding, biking, snorkel but no surfing, hehehe...
I will really love to go back to this place.
ONE REMINDER though, do not go back when its afternoon time because the weather is not good for the boat ride. When we went there, we did and then we had to stop because it rained so hard that we thought we would not be able to cross it but then it stopped raining then we had to turn on the boat machine again and then we were home. The weather is good if its in the morning.
My sibling went back because this is surely one place to go back to.
