Brgy. Sila, we were told, boasts of a nice pink sand beach. Pink. Yes pink.
And there we proceeded to have lunch and do some snorkeling. I, on the other hand, had enough of underwater events the past few months, had opted to explore the other side of the island.
There I discovered a beautiful fishing village with a rich mangrove.
The village is 2 islands connected by walkways. Charming.
Trust me, the photos can’t capture it but the beach is indeed pink. It could be from crushed red corals perhaps? Anyway, here are some captures of this little charming village.

Barangay Sila is one of the 7 islets that makes up the Naranjo group of islands. It is situated west of mainland Northern Samar. These islands face each other almost in a circle, which aside from Sila are, Tarnate, Sanguputan, Panganoron, Maragat and Mahaba. Considered the game fishermen’s paradise, bountiful supplies of swordfish and marlins are to be found. It is likewise said to be an ideal scuba diving spot with beautiful corals. There are however currently very limited facilities for scuba diving.
