Surigao del Sur, Mindanao, Philippines offers Hinutuan River in which the locals named it “The Enchanted River” because of the belief that it was not good to swim at night because the river is being watched over by spirits and fairy. The water is super clear and blue in color with about 25 meters deep. The place closes at 5 PM and it is good to visit during off peak season to further appreciate the beauty of the river because the place can get a little crowded during summer.
