In all my travels, this is probably the first time I hesitate talking about a place. Why? Because I feel ridiculous trying to put its majesty into words. No adjective suffices. This is the enchantment of Kalanggaman Island in Leyte.
It is fucking beautiful.
Simply, Kalanggaman is like the best beach you have ever seen. Only better. Crystal clear water that is simultaneously all the shades of blue. A long and white sandbar stretching to infinity. Coconut trees. I could cry really.
This is the best I have found. Ever. I almost did not want to tell you about it. It does not matter if it is literally in the middle of nowhere. The astounding amount of nothing any which way you look only adds to the mystery and splendor of the island.
If you are crazy about the beach, Kalanggaman Island is the number one reason to visit the Philippines. Hell, to visit South East Asia. This is the best we have in the country, and dare I say, the best in the region.
I mean, LOOK AT IT. Tell me how I can be wrong. 9 out of 10 visitors will agree with me. The 10th is a fucking liar.
