Caluya Islands Tours and Excursions

Caluya Islands Nature, not development, dominates the seven Caluya Islands. There may someday be an airstrip and port. But, current transportation limitations help keep the islands pristine and pollution-free. It is in the same area as Boracay, but it takes less than 2 hours to travel the extra 36 kilometers (20 nautical miles).

The Caluya Islands have hundreds of hectares of tambalang seaweed farms. This makes them one of the main seaweed producers in the Philippines. The Caluya Islands actually produce more seaweed than rice. The farmers then ship the seaweed to Cebu. Cebuanos then make it into carrageenan.

The higher incomes from seaweed farming improves the standard of living. This is evident from the Municipal Hall, the concrete homes, and the children at distant schools.

You can eat inexpensive seafood in the Caluya Islands. Even lobster and crab are inexpensive here.

Try the Caluya Islands Coconut Crabs

The tatus is an expensive coconut crab. It lives on land and has blue markings on its back. Its name is from the coconut, its favorite food. You can attract them at night with grilled coconut.

A tatus can be as large as 40 centimeters (1 foot 4 inches) and as heavy as 4 kilograms (9 pounds). They can live over 30 years and lift 7 times their bodyweight.

Every April, the Tatusan Festival celebrates the tatus. You can see colorful floats and watch street dancing. Visitors come to see and taste the tatus.

Your Caluya Islands Snorkeling Tour

Caluya Islands Snorkeling Tour The Caluya Islands have white sand beaches and pink sand beaches. They resemble an undeveloped Boracay. Like Boracay, though, you will find crystal clear water, caves, and pump boats to other islands.

The Caluya Islands have friendly people. Some may let you stay in their own homes. The dolphins are also friendly! You can go snorkeling, swimming, or boating alongside them. You can also see whale sharks and sea cows.

Be sure to try tirik, a sea urchin delicacy. The orange meat is salty and sweet, and you can collect tirik close to shore. There are several ways to eat it, so try them all!
