 Silago Beach

Idyllic and secluded, Silago is my hometown. The pacific ocean will invite you with strong big waves during high tide and calm serene lake-line ocean during low tide. It was a 2 day trip from Manila by bus in the olden days but thanks to the convenience of Silago-Abuyog road, a 3 hour drive by car along scenic rain forest made it accessible. The town I cherished and witnessed like a growing child, from local festivities to slowly adapting from urbanity. The locals are friendly and they know mostly all their neighbors so you’ll never be lost.  The ocean stretch is just welcoming for public use..a little stroll to Sudmon, Silago and corals and sandstones will welcome you.

Tahusan Beach

This beach can be first sighted to be some Famous beach like in Batangas, but it’s not! It’s a beach from Tahusan, Hinunangan, Southern Leyte. It has the main feature of having plain bay that is not too deep even ashore. Unlike some beaches, they have these deep part in the shores even it’s just a meter away. And you know what’s best for this is, it’s safe for children!

Aside from it’s prominent Plain Bay feature, Tahusan Beach has also a Sand Sculpture Festival held every November. There are competing teams that use sand for castle formation, sculpture formation or any art using only sand. A maximum size of 5 x 5 feet and a minimum of 2 x 2 feet was one of the criteria for the contest.  Read More:  https://romedelute.wordpress.com/2016/04/19/tahusan-beach-astonishing-beach-at-your-reach/

Tangkaan Beach in Padre Burgos, S. Leyte is the only white sand beach that can be found in the whole mainland of Leyte. The beach in the eastern part of Leyte is made of black sand, while in the western part it is mostly of pebbles and stone and rocks. However, Tangkaan beach proves to be different. Not only has it white sand for the beach but it also has some beautiful rock formations. The sea is clear and surprisingly it has beautiful corals teeming with small fishes just two or three meters from the shore during low tides. The name itself has a story. ‘Tangka” means to attempt. In the past, there have been several attempts by the Moros to raid the place, but they could not get to land their boats because of the strong currents. Hence, the name Tangkaan. This strong current, I found out when I went on snorkeling. I did not even have to exert any effort to swim as the current was fast. The good thing was that the current was not going out into the open sea but just along the island.  Read More:  https://beachanatic.blogspot.com/2007/08/tangkaan-beach-in-padre-burgos.html
