The Enchanted Hinatuan River in Surigao del Sur, Philippines

Sited in Hinatuan, people called the river enchanted because of its indisputably enthralling nature’s masterpiece. The bluish water conveys that it is not shallow. This 85 feet deep river scares most of the tourists for it seems you will be swallowed when you dive. 

Aside from the rich blue water, coining of the river’s name could also be attributed to urban stories. It has been said that spirits guard the river that is why swimming beyond six in the afternoon is greatly discouraged. There were also reported sightings of two women sporting long blonde hair and a green-skinned man who walked on the water’s surface who all vanished out of thin air.
