The Ever Enchanting River in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur
In the outback of Surigao del Sur just beneath the raging waves of the mighty Pacific Ocean is a natural wonder that captured one man’s imagination and desire.
Twelve kilometers from the national highway on a dirt, zigzag road that dissected the rough terrains of Hinatuan is Enchanted River. Once hidden from the outside world, Enchanted River has morphed into a must-see destination in Surigao del Sur and the Caraga Region.Its magical water is a result of the saltwater of the Pacific Ocean passing through a deep crack of Hinatuan’s hinterlands perfectly blending to its spring waters.I have been to Hinatuan River thrice and I have never ceased to be amazed by its enchanting brackish waters. And probably, I will never get tired of going there, too.
