Tourism is slowly taking off on this quiet island province, which has the potential to be an adventure wonderland. Verdant Biliran has a long and beautiful coastline and mountainous interior, plus several sandy white beaches on offshore islands. A mostly sealed ring road runs around the island, offering stunning vistas of volcanoes and vivid green rice terraces. It's a great spot to escape the crowds for a few days and do some DIY exploring.
Biliran became a province separate from Leyte in 1992; a short bridge connects the two. The island is lush and it can rain any time, with the most rainfall in December and the least in April. Most people are subsistence farmers or fishers who generally speak Cebuano on the west coast and Waray-Waray on the east.
