When it comes to tourism, Southern Leyte may not have been fully boomed yet. The good thing about this is that most of the scenic spots are not yet spoiled, thus, providing us a better experience – getting us closer to nature.
“The Family” went to Molopolo White Beach during Black Saturday to celebrate three events – my cousin’s graduation + me and my nephew’s birthday. Molopolo is a known tourist spot in Southern Leyte but there is little to no online resources showcasing its beauty.
So here I am blogging our adventure at Molopolo. I really hope with this one blog post, I can help my province be known to everyone.
Entrance fee: 5 pesos for adults (It is free for children below 10 years old)
Cottage: 200 pesos (it’s actually a spacious cottage)
Umbrella cottage: 100 pesos
Videoke machine: 5 pesos for 2 songs
Boat rental: 200 pesos for whole day use
NOTE: No electricity in the cottages. However, there are stores outside the beach resort selling iced water, sodas, etc.
Molopolo White Beach is located in Barangay Molopolo, Liloan, Southern Leyte. It’s 100.6 km from Maasin City (Southern Leyte’s capital) via Bato-Bontoc Road. You have to pass the Liloan-St. Bernard crossing. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Barangay Molopolo from the national highway. You should take note that this barangay is just before the town proper; thus if you have passed through the Liloan bridge, you are lost. If you are riding a bus, ask the conductor you are going to Molopolo.
Or perhaps use Google Maps, it has been added to its database already. Great job Google!
Don’t expect fine white sand here. I suggest get to the islets by a bangka or if it’s a low tide, you can swim from the mainland to the islets.
The islets are perfect for cliff diving. You can also bring your snorkeling gear and see beautiful corals near the islets. Be careful in getting to the islets as the rocks are sharp.

Yes, I strongly suggest you bring a snorkeling gear. The corals are so beautiful. I was even surprise that a school of this tiny fish swimming in front of my face.
By the way, you can also ask friendly locals to get fresh shellfish at a reasonable price.
Here are some photos during our trip. Also included is a short video to summarize our adventure!
