Travel Photo: The San Juanico Bridge

Hello! Today, I will be featuring a photograph I took while exploring a landmark structure in Eastern Visayas.

Where in the world is this?


This is the San Juanico Bridge, the longest bridge in the Philippines. Its length is 2.16 kilometers (or 1.34 miles). It spans across the San Juanico Strait and connects the beautiful islands of Leyte and Samar. What you can see above is the central part of the bridge with an islet below. Fishermen are also found coursing through the calm waters below the bridge. The rays of the early morning sun makes this view more spectacular. This photo was captured on the Samar side after our early morning run across the bridge.

“To embark on the journey towards your goals and dreams requires bravery. To remain on that path requires courage. The bridge that merges the two is commitment.” - Steve Maraboli

    1. Hello Erika! Explore this monumental bridge some time in the future. Thanks for appreciating the photo. This was taken after our early run across the bridge. That is why the setting is so beautiful. I am using a Sony Cybershot. :)

    1. Thanks for appreciating, James! You can rappel down the bridge or rent a boat. Yet, it is not so common there. Stop by the Tourism Office of Tacloban or at the Leyte Capitol for inquiries regarding those amenities. Enjoy your trip in Leyte!
