We all love fantasy. When we were children, we loved the fairy tales and magical stories our parents would tell us right before bed time. Now that we are all grown-ups, we sometimes wish that we could bring back those memories and imagine magical stuffs and all that.
Good thing I live in the Philippines where this dream can get very close to reality as possible. Well, the country is filled with a lot of natural wonders that feels so magical. One of them is the now famed Enchanted River.
Enchanted River is located in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. It got its name “enchanted” because it was believed that the whole place including the river is guarded by an entity not like ours. Some even say that it takes control the body of whoever is swimming in the river.
Whatever that story is, it is clear that most people don’t believe it because more and more tourists are checking the place out.
You will be amazed by how clear the water is. Because of this, the water appears light blue and turquoise in many parts. Some parts are really deep, around 200 feet deep. So, be really careful when you are swimming here.
What makes it more amazing is that there are many sea creatures in the river. Some of them even swim with you. It’s like you are one with nature when you are here.
If given the chance to go to the Enchanted River, I would definitely grab it!
