As promised, here is my second post about my Malapascua trip. My aunt promised us to have island hopping. We woke up early in the morning, it was 7am and we fixed ourselves for the tour. We have our tour guide who is a friend of my other aunt. I really didn't know where Kalanggaman Island is located. I just thought that it is just a nearby island with 30 minutes travel. On the boat, my butt really got ache for sitting 3 hours. I never thought that it is located in Palompon, Leyte. I was really bored on the boat and just fell asleep.
We arrived at the island almost noon. Our tour guide cooked the food for us and we had a very nice lunch on the boat. What's exciting when we arrived there is that we were the only people in the island and it feels like we owned it. Because it was noon, maybe the personnel of the island went back to the mainland to have their lunch so we never made our payment for our stay.
Kalanggaman Island is a public and small island owned by Palompon, Leyte. I was amazed by the wide sand each side of the island.
While snorkeling, I saw fishes, bangus or milk fish, in that shallow water where I was swimming. The boat men only caught the fishes on that shallow water and they were busy cooking tinowa or tinola for our lunch. The island is very abundant with fishes. It is truly beautiful.
It was my first time on that peaceful little island. It was very long trip from Malapascua Island. It is a non-commercialized island and not very famous unlike Boracay. I prefer Kalanggaman island to have its natural environment. I really appreciate its natural beauty and I fell in love with it. I wish I could go back there.
Good thing my aunt called this morning and I've got the chance to ask her about the cost of the boat trip. It's Php2,000 back and forth. Have a nice trip to Kalanggaman Island. ^_^
