Macrohon’s beautiful fish sanctuary

MACROHON - If you want a budget friendly ecoadventure you need not look far as Barangay Sta. Cruz’s Molopolo fish and bird sanctuary is your ticket to instant eco-gratification.

Just 15 minutes from Maasin City and along Macrohon’s national highway the fish and bird sanctuary is one of the most accessible tourist spots in Southern Leyte.

Upon reaching the sanctuary you will hear the mating calls of wild ducks and sea cranes and see the beach’s inviting swimming area.

If you have no fear of heights you can climb the observation tower and have a panoramic view of the mangrove forests which protect both sides of the sanctuary and of the pristine reefs which is only one kilometer away.

However your visit will not be complete if you don’t traverse the long bamboo bridge that leads to the protected marine grounds and feed the different variety of fish there.

Since words cannot express the feeling one gets when one visits this beautiful expression of Macrohon’s homage to Mother Nature, visit the sanctuary one day, and bring your family. It’s really worth it and the staff there are friendly.

And yes. The impressive reef which is one kilometer from shore has been Christened “unofficially” as the Ruperto Kangleon Reef. But of course this must be formalized by Macrohon’s beautiful Mayor Fe Edillo in a ceremony befitting Southern Leyte’s greatest war hero. (By RUEVIVAR “WOWIE” REYES)
