Biliran

This island province is located in Eastern Visayas, connected to the province of Leyte via a bridge just over Poro Island. This mostly mountainous, volcanic island has an inactive volcano, Mount Suiro, as its highest point.

Biliran is great for those who want to go on vacation on a budget — commuting around the island (via pedicab, jeepney, multicab and tricycle) usually costs less than ₱50. Accommodations also come at an affordable rate, from ₱300-1200 per night. Some popular options are Agta Beach Resort at Almeria, and Biliran Garden Resort and Marvin’s Seaside Inn at the capital of Naval.

There are several tiny islets near Biliran where tourists go island-hopping. Sambawan Island is the most popular choice according to locals — the waters are teeming with marine life. Notable islands include Higatangan Island, due to its breathtaking rock formations, and Tingkasan Island, where your boat can even pass through a natural rock tunnel on the way there.

Biliran also has several waterfalls (a total of 30!), such as Tinago, Tomalistis, Ulan Ulan and Kasabangan Falls.

For those eager to see Biliran’s history, there is the Almeria Church at Almeria, and the centuries-old Nasunugan Watchtower in the barrio of San Roque. Moro raiders had burnt the tower down in the 18th century, hence the name.

There is a zoo in the capital of Naval, which boasts of a “liger”, a mix of a lion and a tiger. It is one of a kind, being one of only 80 ligers worldwide.
