After my daytrip at Guiuan, Eastern Samar my uncle and I stayed for the night at one of his sisters house in the town of Salcedo. They told me stories of two magnificent beach spots in Salcedo, Eastern Samar. First was the Jagnaya (pronounced as Hagnaya) Beach and the second was what my aunt would call the Hundred Islands of Eastern Samar. Especially the Jagnaya Beach because my aunt said that it has a cave opening fronting the Pacific Ocean and has a “swimming pool” near the entrance. Unfortunately, due to time constraints I was not able to go there.
Fortunately, tropical storm Pedring got me stranded in Eastern Samar. I wasted no time and excitedly called my uncle, fortunately he too wanted to go to any of the two said beaches. That day we left for Salcedo from Balangkayan and arrived at almost night time.
After a night without electricity, we were on our way to Jagnaya Beach. When we arrived in Jagnaya, the gate where we should pass to the beach was closed! There was no way I’m going to allow this to stop me! I followed the barbed fence hoping that it would end somewhere until I saw someone biking and asked for directions. Eureka! He knows another way to the beach!
I’ll stop writing now and let the pictures do the talking.
