The Hinatuan Enchanted River is a lagoon-river on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. It is located in the CARAGA Region, Surigao del Sur.
The river’s unusual colors and unexplored depths has inspired various local legends. One story tell of fairies that added the colors of sapphire and jade to the river to make its unique shade. Local fishers also report seeing fishes in the river that cannot be caught through any means. According to locals, the river was called the Enchanted River because of the ‘engkantos’ that dwell there. Their legends also say that the river is haunted by supernatural beings which act as its protectors.
