Kalanggaman Island in Palompon town, Leyte will not accept tourists for a week starting Saturday to give way to cleaning and resort repairs, officials said.

The island, with its powdery white sand surrounded by crystal-clear waters, is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the province.

“Parang tao din 'yan, kailangan ng beauty rest (It's like a person, who needs beauty rest),” tourism regional director Karen Tiopes said.

The island is expected to welcome tourists again after the seven-day break.
