Dalutan island in Almeria, Biliran

Dalutan Island belongs to the town of Almeria in the province of Biliran, Philippines. It is just 15 minutes away by boat from the Agta Beach Resort in Almeria. It has a beautiful white beach on just one part of the island as the rest is already rocky and sits on a promontory. The island is forested together with lots of coconut trees. There are also some exotic birds that can be seen there. The island is uninhabited. A caretaker would just arrive daily to collect the rent. Aside from the kiosks that can be used for picnics there is already a cottage where one can stay overnight. There are no amenities, just plain adventure, Robinson Crusoe style. Being near the mainland and yet isolated enough, it a good place for a hideaway and to be alone with nature.

Hi there! I really miss the beautiful and serene beaches of Samar and Leyte. I am happy to see that your circle of friends (Mons Bernie) are still complete. But,I bet, there is someone who is not there--it's me. Got already my own life here in Manila. I hope I will be able to find time to join with your circle of friends someday.

Best wishes,

Vincent
