Calicoan Island Ocean Villas is located in Brgy.Ngolos, Calicoan Island, Guiuan, Eastern Samar. It is approximately 2.5 hours away via a smooth all-weather highway from Tacloban City. Along the way, there are many interesting sights such as the picturesque San Juanico Bridge (the longest in the country), the town of Basey, known for its enchanting cathedral and woven mats, Sohoton National Park and the limestone islands of Marabut, and the historical town of Balangiga with the beautifully sculptured Balangiga Encounter Monument by national artist Napoleon Abueva.
Calicoan Island Ocean Villas is an exclusive 88-lot only development of vacation homes by the Pacific Ocean. It is fronted by a spectacular 3km stretch of white sand beach. World-class surfing, diving, fishing, jungle-trekking, and exotic flora and fauna are just some of the diversions available.
The project provides an ideal getaway for family and friends. A destination of unmatched beauty. A location accessible yet far from the maddening crowds.
Calicoan Island Ocean Villas is the first high-end resort subdivision in what has been named one of the top future destinations in the country. It is a joint venture between Eastland Property Ventures and developers of The Surf Camp
, the pioneering luxury resort in the region.
It is this professional management team that oversees the construction, maintenance, administration, and rental (if you may so wish) of your villa.Bounded by The Pacific Ocean on the east and Leyte Gulf on the west, this 1,600 hectare island is considered the Jewel of the Pacific coast. Miles of white sand beaches, dramatic coralline landscapes, cathedral caves, and powerful surfing waves characterize the Pacific side of Calicoan, while the Leyte Gulf side features calm and clear water ideal for swimming and watersports. There are 6
saltwater lagoons ringed by forest along the interior of Calicoan.
Half of the island is covered by lush tropical forest containing exotic species of flora and fauna, such as rare birds, civet cats, and curious Macaque monkeys. The forest has been declared a protected area by the Department of Energy and Natural Resources.
The surrounding waters are some of the most abundant in natural resources anywhere. Big gamefish such as tuna, marlin, swordfish and mahi-mahi are caught regularly in the waters between Calicoan and Sulu-an island. Large mangrove crabs can be found on the island’s northern tip. Lobsters are known to be caught off the waters of Ngolos Beach, right in front of the Ocean Villas!
In the calmer waters of the Leyte Gulf, sea cucumbers, sea grapes, and tropical reef fish abound. A pearl and giant clam farm is nearby.
Its Remarkable History
In 1521, the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan first made landfall in nearby Homonhon island when he discovered the Philippines for Spain.
The island’s strategic location and bountiful resources made it a major staging area for American forces during the second world war.
Close to 100,000 U.S servicement were assigned in Calicoan and its surrounding areas. In October 1944, hundreds of U.S and Japanese warships clashed off the shores of Calicoan in what became known as the Battle of Leyte Gulf, the largest naval engagement in world history.
ABCD Surf Beach
Just 3kms away from the Ocean Villas is ABCD Beach. Short for Advanced Base Construction Depot, this former WW2 American Supply Base is now known as the site of Calicoan’s world-class surfing action.
The Bomber Runway
Just 15 minutes away from the Ocean Villas, is a 7,000 foot runway capable of handling large commercial jets.
The runway, is the remaining one of 3 that were built during WW2 to accommodate American B-17, B-24, and B-29 bombers enroute to Saipan and the Marianas.
It remains in excellent condition with regular resurfacing. The airport terminal has recently been refurbished and is now ready to accommodate upcoming commercial flights to Guiuan.
