Panata Island: Know your Philippine features at the Kalayaan Island Group (KIG)

Panata literally means “Oath“ and internationally known as “Lankiam Cay”.

It has an area of 0.44 hectare and is located about 7 nautical miles (12.96 kilometers) east northeast of Kota Island.

At one time the island had a surface area of more than 5 hectare, but strong waves and strong typhoons eventually washed out the sandy surface (beach) of the island leaving behind the calcarenite foundation that can be seen at low tide.
