Of all the islands in Cuatro Islas, Inopacan, Mahaba Island offers the perfect spot for swimming and lounging around. With the fine sand and crystal clear waters, a day trip to this island is just wonderful. NOTE: bring your own supplies because there are no stores to buy from in this island

This is the most beautiful among Cuatro Islas. The island is totally unspoilt (no cottages, stores, etc) which makes it really clean - no trashes! Sand is fine and nice and water is crystal clear. It's also a great place for snorkeling. Lots of scenic coral reef areas and fish to see!

It is the most beautiful island among the Cuatro Islas characterized with a breathtaking beach facing the Island of Leyte and with still waters being in the middle and closer to Leyte. Snorkeling is not necessary to see the beautiful coral gardens with colorful fishes surrounding Mahaba Island because the waters around this island are PERFECTLY... More
