On our third day, we decided to go to Higatangan Island. This is another separated island from the main island where we found the Higatangan Shifting Sandbar. We rented a boat that brought us to this island. When we got there, there was this low-key resort just right next to the shifting sandbar. We rented a kubo (small kayawan house). There was no fan or aircon on it. Our only way to get some air was to open the window overlooking the beach.
We talked to the owner of the kubo and he told us that we could go around the island to visit the Higatangan Lighthouse, a cave, and get to know the local community. We did that and took us four hours to make our way to these places.
We also found out that during the super Typoon Yolanda (Typoon Haiyan as its international name), they were not able to get some food supply from the mainland as the water was so rough and no boat was able to pass through it. They waited for five days before they could get some food and water supply. Three years after the typoon, the island was still being renovated as it was in total destruction during that time.
