Travel-Northern Samar Offers Undisturbed Paradise Islets


Many of you know I have travelled to the Philippines to visit many times, and I have seen some parts of the 7,107 island paradise. Also, because of my former occupation which led to this website, I am also interested in lighthouses, so when the two of them come together, then it is of interest to me, and hopefully to you also.


 Northern Samar Offers Undisturbed Paradise Islets

TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte—Northern Samar will soon be found on the tourism map.

The provincial government is developing four beautiful, undisturbed islands as premier tourist destinations—Biri, Capul, San Antonio and San Vicente, all along the San Bernardino Strait separating Samar and Luzon. . . . 

. . . Capul boasts of a 16th-century church and a century-old lighthouse. The church was not only a place of worship but also a refuge from Moro raids in the early days. Recently, it was declared a historical site by the National Historical Commission.
