Attraction details
Owner description: The Leyte Landing Memorial is a memorial to the landing of American General Douglas MacArthur and his men at Red Beach. The memorial was erected in tribute to MacArthur’s fulfillment of his promise to return to the Philippines after it was occupied by the Japanese during World War II in the Philippines.
Reviewed 26 June 2010

This is where U.S. General MacArthur and his men first landed in Red Beach. Leyte was also the site of the biggest naval battle that the country has ever seen and it was a fight between the Allies and Japan. Every October 20, the anniversary of the end of Japanese occupation in the Philippines is commemorated at the park with a reenactment of the famous landing, attended by local and foreign dignitaries.

You may go there by public transportation from Tacloban City. Jeepneys plying that route can be found near McDonald's in downtown Tacloban. You can swim as it is a beach but I don't find the water to be that inviting so I gave it a pass.
