Caridad Beach, Pilar, Siargao Island

While the other parts of Siargao Islands are now commercialized, there are still some areas that remained untapped. One of them the Caridad Beach in the small barangay of Caridad in the town of Pilar. It is around 15 minutes ride from Pacifico Beach in the neighboring San Isidro municipality and 7 to 10 minutes from Magpopongko Beach which also belongs to the town of Pilar.

The beach sprawled with a stretch of fine white sand is bounded on both edges with a line of limestone formations grown with coconut trees making its blue water shallow and enticing for swimming.
Being afar from the well-known and frequented beaches around the island, Caridad Beach is unoccupied and spared from the public, with only the residents near the shore seen enjoying the exclusivity of the beach.
Everything is perfect in Caridad Beach. The sand, the sun, the skies, and the seas. The place which can be described in cool blue is very picturesque. Im sure every photographer would love to catch its refreshing environment.
The residents within the area are also amiable and cozy. Some of them are still living in the basics. Their abodes are built in indigenous materials and their children utilizes a piece of wornout tires cut in halves for playing see-saw.
Their lives are so simple, yet happy you can see it in their faces.

@allan... unhurried and unspoiled. thats the appropriate words for the beach.



@tonyo... konti pa lang nakakaalam siguro. masyadong concentrated ang mga tourists sa surfing site.. madami din kasin white sand beaches around dun.

@allen.. di sya gumugulong... nagsi-sway lang na parang see saw. kulit nga eh. ang kyut.



@rafter.. bakit mo napili ang siargao?
