LANUZA, SURIGAO DEL SUR ESCAPADE

MAGKAWAS FALLS 
AND GREEN PARADISE

If you are stress and if you wanted peace and serenity, this is a good place for you. Few people come over here probably because this is situated in remote area of Lanuza, Surigao del Sur. According to my guide, there are many nature trippers (both local and foreign) who often visit this falls not so long ago…but maybe because of the under-developed road; they lost the nerve to come back. This place is really awesome. Hearing those birds singing will make you calm. This place is far from my city life obviously. :-)



Oooppss....another 10-15 minutes walk to be able to see the beauty of the falls, feel the coldness of the water and enjoy the therapeutic massage of its current. 


Magkawas falls here I come. 


Wow...who would have thought that I'll get an instant hydro massage? The heavy drops of water falls into my back. It feels so good! oh yeah! hahah... 

MARINE SANCTUARY


Lanuza's marine sanctuary is just a walking distance from Magkawas falls. There are cottages inside. 



This is exactly what we see inside the sanctuary. Crystal clear water, it only proves that it is less polluted compared to other beaches. 


This is my first time to see preserved giant turtle. This signifies that the sea is in undisturbed state. Glad to know that the government is taking some legal actions against those people who killed endangered species. 

LANUZA BAY 
SURFING FESTIVAL AREA


If you think rafting or ziplining is just a "no sweat" adventure. Try surfing then let me know how you feel as big waves wash you out. 


It's early morning and we're now ready for surfing lesson. This little boy, Mr. Laudes,  will teach me the "basics" of surfing. He's a great surfer and even won 1st prize during surfing competition junior division few years ago.


Goodness! The waves are really unforgiving. The sea is really rocky. Huge currents or waves discourage me from time to time. 


What can you expect from a first time surfer with incomplete surfing gears? Of course, better stay along the shore and be envious to those who know how to surf. hahaha
