    Philippines is equal to ferrys and going btw the islands is pretty easy and cheap.Several ferry lines travels from Cebu and Southern Leyte and the easiest port to access is Maasin. (the other two being Batu and Hilongos) Prices are similar but since you most likely going to Maasin the extra travel time in Jeepneys is well worth the extra...

    You can find this small shell at the shoreline, just let the small waves vast to shore line. Moreover, you will see this moving to hide. But after you pick them just turn it back so next time you’ll be going back there again, you can expect them bigger and ready to eat..

  • Rainy Days/Swimming Time

    Saint Bernard Off The Beaten Path

    We have nice brown sand there but you need to walk for about 10 minutes to approach the beach area. At this time, my sister Miya want to go swimming but it is so rainy. Well, rain cannot stop us to go swimming. You will not feel the cold air whisper your body if you stand on the water, but you can feel the raindrops keep falling into your...

    With 255 meters of beach front, you can relax very well at a beach house located in Dakdak, Limasawa, Southern Leyte, Philippines.

    Enjoy the sun and the beach right in front or you can hire a boat (300-400pesos) so you can go around the island and do village hopping as well as snorkeling or you can even bring your scuba gears with you and dive some of the most amazing dive sites in the Philippines. Snorkeling is really good, too. If you just want to lie on the beach, there are so many virgin beaches around the island!

    Visit the marker of the First ever Catholic mass in Asia in the village of Magallanes, view the majestic sunrise on the east side of the island (Magallanes or Lugsongan) between 5 and 6 am or the equally spectacular sunset on the west side (Triana or San Bernardo), visit a hill in the village of San Agustin to see the giant clam shells or to go caving! Also in San Agustin, you can find some coastal springs, peculiarly-shaped coral boulders, and pristine coral sand beaches! Bike along Lugsongan, Magallanes, Triana, San Bernardo, or even San Agustin. Between November and April (peaking in February-March), you may also take a boat to do whalesharks watching (and swim with them if you want). Hike around the island or walk along trails to reach some summits for a breath-taking view!

    In the evening, hire any of the old massage ladies to try hilot (the traditional philippine massage) to relax yourself so you can slumber like a baby afterwards. Just ask the locals who you can hire.

    Come on over and relax for a few days or even a week!

Limasawa Island

  • Rowing your way to the island

    Limasawa Island Transportation

    There is only one way to get to Limasawa - take the motorized boat or locally referred to as "bangkang de motor". Made from wood, both sides have outriggers made of bamboo. Depending on the size, a boat can accommodate 3 to 5 persons plus the "driver". Wooden planks are placed horizontally to serve as seats. From the Padre Burgos wharf, the island...

  • It's not a picnic

    Limasawa Island What to Pack

    Travelling on open sea under the glare of the sun is not fun. Wear a hat to cover your face, a long-sleeved shirt to cover your arms, and jeans to cover your legs. Don't leave without your sun block, otherwise, you'll suffer later. Place your valuables, like camera, in a plastic to prevent them from getting wet.

    The only fine dining restaurant in the area. The restaurant building is made of local/native materials like nipa for the roof and bamboo for the wall. The ambience is so relaxing with the soothing music background, from Jazz to classical. The food is excellent.The sinigang na hipon, kinilaw na tanguige and sizzling pusit are superb plus some other local dishes.
    You can try their "kinilaw na kalabaw" (lean carabao meat in native vinegar and coconut milk) only at Rosita's.

    Favorite Dish: All the seafood dishes are superb. Better try each everytime you visit.
