Tangkaan Beach

Tangkaan Beach is located in Padre Burgos, Southern Leyte. People say that it is Leyte’s version of Boracay because of its white sand, crystal blue waters and panoramic landscape. Tangkaan Beach is one of the white sand beaches in Southern Leyte. It is also famous for its beautiful and exciting rock formations.

Tangkaan Beach is not just a place of relaxation and enjoyment. It is also a place of history. The name Tangkaan is from the word “tangka” which means to attempt because in the past the Moro raiders attempted many times to invade Padre Burgos but because of the strong wind and big waves, they weren’t able to land their boats.

Tangkaan Beach is just three kilometers away from Padre Burgos. To reach there, there are available tricycles and habal-habals. The beach’s entrance is P10 per head and the cottage charge is P70.

As of now, Tangkaan is one of best diving sites in the Philippines because of its untouched corals and rich biodiversity and foreigners would visit the place for sea diving and snorkeling.
