Places to visit
The famous shifting sand bar. An inviting stretch of pure powdery white sand beach, surrounded by an alluring crystal blue waters is a wise choice of swimming and diving spot. The sand bar takes its form depending on the wind direction and water current.
Rock formations jut out to the sea west of Higatangan Island, north of the cove in the photo above.
Apparently, the former president Marcos temporarily took refuge during WWII on this little island off the north-west tip of Leyte. That’s why the highest point on the island (46m) is still called Marcos Hill to this day.
