If you walk by the shores of Camotes Sea, small islands are a common sight. These four islands, dubbed as Cuatro Islas, are circumscribed by beautiful white sand beaches. Three of these four islands are under the jurisdiction of the municipality of Inopacan.

International and local tourists flock to Cuatro Islas for its beauty comparable to other white sand beaches in the country. Its smallest island, Digyo, is the most popular of these four islands as a tourist destination.

    Tourism industry has played a vital role for progress of any town or city. If these two little islets – Apid and Mahaba belong to the control of Inopacan, then we would like to encourage the leadership of Mayor Lumarda to top our local NGO by putting up possible resorts in the area for tourists and balikbayans this coming 2012 town fiesta.

    WOW!!! Something to boast for! I’m a proud offspring of a native Leytenons. My mother is from Inopacan while my father is from Hindang(whose roots came from Sogod and Tomas Oppus in S.Leyte). I look forward visiting this nice place. BTW, whoever happens to be my relative, you may drop me a message thru my email add: bdconsad@gmail.com or add me on facebook. God bless us all!
