Glenda B. Ecleo), the Charter of the Province of Dinagat Islands, in a plebiscite. The Dinagat Islands  is a group of islands constituting a province in the Philippines, located on the south side of Leyte Gulf. The island of Leyte is to its west, across Surigao Strait, and Mindanao is to its south. Its main island, Dinagat, is about 60 kilometres (37 mi) from north to south.
