Diyo Island: Tacloban’s White Island

Diyo Island is a small island in the Republic of the Philippines. Diyo Island is located on the western area of San Pedro Bay. To its west is Tacloban City, the capital of Leyte.

I saw the island upon my flight’s descent to Daniel Z Romualdez Airport and took a closer look through my camera while walking at the airport’s runway.

As seen from my lens, Diyo Island seems to have a beautiful white sand beach and it has many tall coconut trees.

After exiting Daniel Z Romualdez Airport, I visited Santo Nino Church, Santo Nino Shrine, and MacArthur Landing.

I don’t know if the island is open for public but looking at Wikimapia, there are a couple of structures there including a swimming pool.
