Hayaan Islet is located in Tubigon, Province of Bohol, Central Visayas, Philippines and is nearby to Buenos Aires, Inanoran, and Budlanan Island. The estimate terrain elevation above sea level is four meters. This is a private property and there is no entrance fee nor environmental fee because nobody’s taking care of this place nowadays.

I just visited this islet last February 20 (this year, 2016) and it was so different from the last time we stayed here (overnight) in the year 2007 if I’m not mistaken. Most of the cottages were damaged due to typhoons and some of the plants before doesn’t exist anymore. You can also see some changes in color on the Bermuda grass.

Cabgan Island

Just off the coast of Tubigon town is Cagban Island, a quaint, 80-hectare landmass, its name coming from the Visayan word “kabog”, which means bat. Around the island’s coasts dot 24 kinds of mangroves, several of them so extensive that they form into sizeable forests that make the homes of several species of large bats called flying foxes!
