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.

Previously, the only paradise I knew about Southern Leyte where I can find beautiful beaches and exquisite views were at Canigao Island, Padre Burgos, or in Sogod Bay which is prevalently known as the haven of whale sharks and other beautiful aquatic creatures in the province. However, I got the chance to visit Silago, Southern Leyte because we have friends who were from this town. This opportunity made me discover an exciting sensuous pleasure of the other part of the south. We actually stayed at Brgy. Hingatungan, Silago for days and sought adventure at Laguma Rock.

Laguma Rock (which took its name from its place) is also called by the locals as “Bato Dako” in their dialect which means ‘Big or Large Rock’. It is likewise called “Pelada Rock” and commonly called as ‘Snake Island’ because sea snakes dwell on holes and frequently seen by locals sleeping or resting between rocks. Moreover, marine feathered vertebrates are also seen hovering and circling above the island, searching for food and building their nests on the rock.   Read More:  https://dyaryodebyahe.blogspot.com/2016/08/the-bato-dako-ofsouthern-leyte-aerial.html
