Introducing Padre Burgos

by becca on February 19, 2010

Our first day in Padre Burgos we checked into what seemed like the last available accommodation option in this tiny village in Southern Leyte. We’re staying in a little concrete bungalow that sits at the top of a rock face with views of Sogod Bay. We access a rocky beach and magnificent snorkeling (untouched reefs and decent amounts of fish) via a steep staircase carved into the cliff.

In the bungalow next door is our neighbor Clai, an American expat who’s called Southeast Asia home for five years. Clai is quite the business man and a few minutes after meeting us he hired us to make a website for his budding real estate venture. We spent a few days photographing his properties and building the site and Whale Shark View Real Estate is ready to build you a beach house for $40,000.

Though this town is teensy tiny, there’s a group of 12 Brits, Aussies and Fins all in their twenties, that have been here for about two months building a boat. They’re absolutely mad — driving around town in an old American military jeep that barely runs and living in an abandoned building in the jungle as if it were a dorm — but that’s why we love them and they’re really welcoming, giving us a great reason to stick around Padre Burgos for a while.
