Abuyog, Leyte

The old, historic and quaint town of Abuyog is the largest municipality on the eastern coast of Leyte facing Leyte Gulf and the open Pacific Ocean. Located 62 kilometers south of Tacloban City, the 1st class municipality is but an hour’s drive along the Maharlika Highway – a leisurely getaway to the countryside on a lazy afternoon.

  9. Very nice photos. I remember some of those places. I went there 3 years ago during the town fiesta. I’ll be going there again this weekend. I was checking for a convenient route to go to Abuyog from Cebu and I stumbled on this site. If anyone here happens to know a good route, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much! Have a great day all.

  20. A small and improving town here in Leyte. It’s nice to see these pics ‘cuz when I was in grade school, it wasn’t like what I see now in your photos. A lot of changes so far. I’m happy & proud I spent my 6 years at Abuyog, Leyte. Mabuhay ka, Abuyognon!!!
