Be enchanted of the beauty the river of hinatuan brings.

Little Paradise

The locals call it Enchanted River because long before it was discovered and when it was not yet beautified and developed by the government a lingering spirit was once spotted by some locals. A lady in white having a long black hair and said to be the guardian of the place protecting the nature from anyone who might bring harm to them. It is a place where the beauty of nature reigns. The Place was magnificent, the river was surrounded by plants and trees and the waters are crystal clear. It still is a mystery of where the water had come from. Tourist who visit this place call it "Little paradise" for it makes you forget your problems and gives you a relaxing atmosphere.

If your searching for a place to unwind and experience adventure, well this is a perfect place for you. It is approximately 30 minutes travel from the town of hinatuan in which you can find this place in Barangay Cambatong of Hinatuan Surigao del Sur. The road might be a little rough but a lot of tourist disregard the hassle for its worth it. No divers had yet reached the bottom of this river which somehow be risky however rest assured for there are alert lifeguards who surround the place. You can also find a souvenir shop for you to collect some locals magnificent work and art.

But another attraction of this place is some fantastic show of fishes and they call it "feeding time," which usually happens at around 12 noon. A caretaker from the Enchanted River Management Office would ring the bell requesting everyone to get out from the water.The "Hymn of Hinatuan" well then be played, and a spectacular school of fishes comes out from nowhere. The fishes will gather around near the mouth of the river as the caretaker throws food into the water, tourist will might as well participate in the "feeding time" by throwing their leftovers. Adults and kids enjoys the show with the gleaming display of the fishes fighting over the food.

This are just examples of the great adventures that we witnessed in the majestic place. The experience we had cannot be described with just mere words for we leave the place with a smile in our faces.
