Canhugas Nature Park opens from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Overnight stay is still prohibited. The entrance fee is PHP10 for Hernani resident, PHP20 for non-resident, and PHP50 for foreigners.

Considered as one of the top tourist destinations in Eastern Samar province, the nature park is located in the town center, just a few meters away from the national highway.

Canhugas was derived from the local term “hugas” (wash) is a place where fishermen used to wash their catch.

The tourist destination had become popular with tourists for its gigantic waves that crash onto the large rock formation.

Its breathtaking scenery of big waves attacking the Bato-Bato Peak facing the Pacific Ocean makes it picture-perfect. Another attraction is the Canhugas mini-falls with overflowing waters from the big ocean waves.

Visitors may also do snorkeling and swimming in small lagoons inside Canhugas.

Aside from Canhugas, the local government also opens other tourist destinations like the Panglaw Beach and Surfing Camp, Guinduyanan Cove, and Tunog Beach, Atang Beach, and Pook Beach, Bura Beach, and Bangon Falls. (PNA)
