Camotes islands

Camotes Islands are a group of four islands between Cebu and Leyte. The two main islands of Poro and Pacijan are connected by a mangrove-fringed land bridge. The only town of San Francisco(San Fran is its popular name) is in Pacijan Island, while Poro has two towns: Poro and Tudela. The third island of Ponson has the town of Pilar. This island is the one nearest the island of Leyte. The fourth island of Tulang Diot is the smallest and the village there belongs to the town of San Francisco. A good number of beach resorts have recently opened especially in San Fran where most of the beautiful white beaches can be found. The above picture is from the Santiago Bay Garden & Resort.

The Boho Rock Resort which is just near the town proper of Poro.

My Little Island Hotel, the newest hotel in Camotes is nestled in the hills of Poro with a commanding view of the sea. It has an infinity pool at the back that seems to connect with the ocean below.

In the island of Pilar, Kawit has the best white beach. There a few resorts around the island of Pilar but none can boast of the white sandy beach like that of Kawit, which is at the other end of the island from the main town of Pilar.
