Digyo Island, a hidden paradise


island
One of the four islands of Cuatro Islas in Inopacan, Leyte which is the smallest and farthest among the four islands.
    

      After a day's tour in Baybay town and nearby beaches, we are still clamoring to see more of Leyte's beauty. We were told that Cuatro Islas at Inopacan, a nearby town after Baybay has this beautiful island called Digyo which is not so well known to tourists.

From where I stand here on Inopacan beach, Cuatro Islas (meaning four islands) can be seen at the back of me.
    An early morning bus ride to Inopacan beach took us thirty minutes to get there where we will take a boat to Digyo island. The weather is fine and the tide is still low, there were no tourists can be seen around because it's one of their low season month for tourists and so their fee for renting their banca cost us only Php 1,200.00, but during their peak month it can raise to Php 1,600.00. The capacity of the boat is just enough for us four people including the boatman.

Mahaba Island

     Cuatro Islas composed of four islands namely Mahaba, Apid, Himukilan and Digyo. Mahaba is the nearest island among the four and a few commercial establishments are present.


     Island hopping is one of the best adventure activities you can enjoy here or you can just enjoy the boat ride and sightseeing around the islands just like we did because our target is Digyo island and we are pressed for time because we will be catching a plane back to Manila in the afternoon.


     We are already filled with astonishment at the sight were seeing as we passed the three islands, and we were so amazed at our first glance of Digyo island, its pristine clear waters, white powdery sands and the fact that this is the smallest among the four makes it more wonderful and enticing to the eyes.

        A picture perfect scene. For me this is the best beach and island, so private and solemn, a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of a city life.

scenery

     
     There were few Nipa huts built for rent on PHP 100.00 a day. There are no other facilities here so the activities you can do are limited to swimming, snorkeling, diving, sightseeing and picture taking.

     It's time to go and leave Digyo, we could have stayed for quite some time, but I received a call from Cebu Pacific that our flight will be scheduled to leave one hour earlier so we had to leave this wonderful place earlier. Good thing also that my cellular line is Globe Telecom because from Baybay to Digyo island my connection is continuous I was able to contact and update transactions in Manila.

Family staycation in Canyon Woods and food tripping in Tagaytay

At long last! Our vacation pushed through which was postponed for several times due to bad weather caused by typhoons the previous months and followed by my kids’ first trimester exams last month so it took us 4 months since we purchased the vacation package from an online website store.  It was actually a 2 days stay in Canyon Woods located in Laurel, Batangas.  We got it at 50% off which was originally priced at Php6,000.00 but it can only be used on regular days so my husband and I had to leave for work as well as my kids from their school. 

3 days Ilocos tour – Vigan, Paoay, Burgos and Pagudpud

This is the memorable vacation I had this year, because not only I have with me my family, but together with my friends with their families also.  This trip has been long been planned since last quarter of last year that every time we have a get together this Ilocos trip has been brought over our discussions as our next itinerary until we were able to finalize the date when everyone can join, and so the set date was last February 22 to February 25.

One day wander in Lucban Quezon

After in hiatus for several months on the road I finally had this opportunity again to hit the road last February 21.  It was officially our first road travel this year after I had my C-section operation last December so I have to confine myself at home most of the time to recuperate.  But of course I was not 100% at home because confinement will kill me to death.. ha ha! It would already be a pleasure for me if I go walking the streets around the neighborhood to grasp fresh air, but once in a while I’m still longing for nature, clear skies, and travelling the road.


We planned a day tour out of town which could be easily reached by car where we have not explored yet.  There are many to choose from actually, either North or South.  But we have decided to go to Lucban, Quezon to visit “Kamay ni Hesus Shrine” while the weather is still cold, because in summer it would be too hot and humid as you have to ascend the long stretch of steps to get to the top.  Kamay ni Hesus is a pilgrimage si…
