- Еnchanted River
Hidden in Barangay Cambatong, 30-45 minutes away from the town proper is the Enchanted River with color like the pepsi-blue..very deep and very clear. Locals talk about the river being watched by spirits and that is why no one swims there by 6 pm. In 1935, there were sightings of two strange women with long blonde hair and a man in green, who walked on the waters and disappeared. Occasionally, they appear before strangers or unwary locals and tongues would wag in quiet disbelief. It was said that once an American diver tried to dive the depths but never reach rock bottom. What was amazing also, and this even the locals cannot fathom why, was that although you can see many many big fishes in different varieties because of the clear waters no one has ever catch one – not by hand, by spear, or even by dynamite, or so they say.Another great thing about it is that the enhchanted river is actually very near the Hinatuan sea – which will explain its pepsi-blue color.
- Las Grietas
Hike through enormous cacti and over the lava rock formations to one of the most unique swimming holes on the planet.
