Cuatro Islas Island Hopping

Cuatro Islas Island Tour

Cuatro Islas is a group of four islands

Cuatro Islas is a group of four islands near Leyte

Cuatro Islas, Leyte Cuatro Islas, meaning "four islands" in Spanish, lies 2 to 3 hours by boat from Shangri-la Mactan Island. It is 73 kilometers (40 nautical miles) from our Scotty's Dive Center Headquarters in Mactan, heading 74° on the compass.

The islands of Apid, Digyo, Himokilan, and Mahaba offer 12,500 hectares of protected areas and compose the Cuatro Islas.

For now, few tour packages visit Cuatro Islas. This helps keep the area in pristine condition, and reduces the crowds.

Snorkeling and Swimming at Cuatro Islas

Crystal clear water surrounding Cuatro Islas is great for snorkeling and swimming. You can see under the water while still inside your boat.

Use your waterproof camera to capture the coral reef, reef wall, sea turtles, squids, and reef fish. Digyo Island and Mahaba Island have sandbars to explore. Mahaba Island also has mangroves.

If you like to avoid crowds, be sure to go swimming at Mahaba Island.
