We had a quick opportunity to visit San Antonio in Dalupiri Island, Northern Samar last May 26 & 27, 2010.
San Antonio (mistakenly called, San Antonio Island) is the name of the sole municipality in the island of Dalupiri in Northern Samar.
It can be reached either via the town of San Isidro or the much nearer Victoria; both towns are along the Maharlika Highway. From the jump off point at the Victoria pier, it is a mere 30-minute motorboat ride across to the island.
San Antonio seems to be the preferred excursion site specially for people living in the northwestern part of the island of Samar and we could understand why. The beaches are still unspoiled and the waters are unpolluted.
And one has a choice among several beach resorts offering overnight accommodations (airconditioned & non-aircon rooms & cottages) at reasonable rates.
We stayed at the Haven of Fun.
Enjoyed a couple of beers at the beach bathed by the light of an exoctic, full moon.
It was awesome.
