Really nice rock formations, worth the drive and the 5 pesos they charge for admittance. Lots of people are their with their families eating and such, lots of kids in the water. Decent place to swim, even has some showers! Take a look at this one!

Clear blue waters, that's what I've always remembered about Tangkaan. You have to go down to get to the beach so make sure to assist the young and elderly. No wheelchair access. I recommend bringing your own food as there's no place to buy any. You can do some rock diving for the more adventurous ones. Kids have no chance... More

If you swim out a ways here, there is plenty to see, though the coral is somewhat damaged and covered in trash closer to shore. Decent chance of dolphins, turtles and pelagics. Beware of holidays though, as this place can get over run with local visitors.

Buy a roast chichen from the shop and take a motorcycle from Padre Burgos to the end of the point where you will find tables, changing rooms, a statue of St George (?) excellent snorkelling and family friendly beaches. Lots of locals there at the weekend - great fun!

If you are in Padre Burgos for diving, this beach is a nice one to have a little break. It is easy to reach and during the week not to crowded. Snorkeling is nice. Turtles are quite common there, best to be seen in the later afternoon.

This was the best place in Southern Leyte that we went to for visibility in the water and just some peace and quiet. The water was so warm and the people were awesome. For a small price for like $1 you can rent out a table for you and your group or whoever. It was definitely worth it. We spent... More

This white sand beach is a heaven to those who seeks serenity. Though you have to travel far and cross mountains by van you will enjoy the long journey and the place is worth a try! Waves are huge and ocean is blue. from there you can see the famous Limawasa Island which is 30 minutes boat ride. The place... More

We are looking for that perfect white sand beach in tacloban which is accessible through private van. We ended up visiting the tip of tacloban or the Padre Burgos wherein Tangkaan Beach is located. We rested under the balete tree of the public beach, sands are white and waves are huge because it is facing china sea. From there you... More
