Vanishing Island at Surigao del Sur

While on the Enchanted River, one could also visit the Vanishing Island by renting a pump boat. The boat ride usually costs 160-200php for one hour. And the tour includes a visit to the Vanishing Island (Banising as mentioned by the bangkero), HInatuan Cave, Sibadan Fish Cage (‘Piskids’ as what kuya bangkero said), and the Tinago River.

Surigao also has its own version of a vanishing island, and though it’s quite small but it’s one of my favorites. I just love the bluish green and turquoise crystal clear water, the powdery sand, and the perfectly shaped clouds that floats from afar the time that we got there.  It just so happened that during our visit the weather was calm. Thank you Lord.
