The Ten Largest Islands in the Philippines
The following are the ten largest islands in the Philippines (or in Filipino, ang “Sampung Pinakamalaking Pulo sa Pilipinas“). Figures were obtained from the Island Directory Tables (world islands by area) list in the United Nations Environment Program website. Hope this can be useful for researchers and students alike. 🙂
