Cantiasay-San Pedro Wooden Foot Bridge

The Cantiasay-San Pedro bridge is the country's longest wooden foot bridge at 391 meters strip. It connects the islands of Nonoc and its neighbor Hanigad Island, still within the Surigao City geopolitical domain.

Nonoc Island can be traveled via motor boat in less than an hour and took a good walk of about a kilometer from Brgy. Nonoc to reach Brgy. Cantiasay where the bridge interconnects.

Then the thrilling journey begins.

Walking at this some-part-shaky and some-part-deep bridge was fun. From the usual boat transit to another island, this one's a beyond the usual option. It's as if you're God walking above the water with the views of the corals and aquarium fishes below.


The modest abode in Brgy. San Pedro, Hanigad Island are erected on the shore above the sea. Most of the residents acquire their living obviously by fishing and hunting aquarium fishes. I have no idea what they will be doing with the dried starfish and carageenans but i saw some laid at the dike.

So here goes, experience the thrill of crossing two islands on foot!

The foot brioge is cool. Parang miniature version ng San Juanico. Is that made by the locals or the municipal government?

ayos ah! galing naman ng gumawa nito.

@tonyo.. municipal government. the locals, looking at their humble houses, obviously cannot fund the erection of that wooden bridge. the woods used were not ordinary, they're concrete.

@dong.. yun nga lang ang nakalimutan kong itanong, kung sino ang gumawa. next time itatanong ko.
