For years, the Province of Biliran has been living in the shadow of Leyte, its parent province. It remained out of the tourists radar for such a long time until recently, when the world started to see the province's natural charm. Well, true beauty has its ways of getting itself noticed and for a place as beautiful as Biliran, it is but inevitable for the world to not notice its allure.
Biliran is composed of two major islands – Biliran and Maripipi, and smaller islands and islets that dot its water including the famed Sambawan Island.

The Amazing Biliran
Visited four places and we barely scratched the surface as the province has tons of sites to offer. Truly amazing indeed. Love the place and definitely would be going back for another round of R&R and exploration.

This return trip to Biliran wouldn't be complete without even a cursory visit to even just one or two of the province's main attractions -- its waterfalls. And there are many (30 or so named with more still to be named, in an island of 500 sq kms.)
