After our trip to Tinuy - Ann falls, we immediately went to Enhanted River for a swim to the clear blue river. Indeed, all the reviews on how clear, salty, blue and amazing this natural beauty are spot on. So my reviews is a bit on a weighing my experience with the river itself and the facilities surrounding it. We... More

The water is salty but just fine and not irritated my eyes. Clear blue and green water, enjoyed bonding with fish. This river looks like a swimming pool. Avoid holidays and weekends so you can enjoy the charm of this nature.

I've been to enchanted river twice already and I agree with everyone that it's naturally awesome, but the place is poorly managed and the crowd is way too rowdy and packed. If you're expecting a nature-oriented escapade, you'll be every bit disappointed. People were cramped everywhere, leaving trash and human mess that scared the "enchanted" away off the river. Swimming... More

As soon as u see it, u just want to dive in to the inviting blue water. Temperature is just right, not too cold. Water, taste a bit salty, and you can see through to the bottom! It feels a little bit eerie though when I look down, maybe something to do with the river being enchanted. This is going... More

It's amazing how the fish come out at the stroke of noon for their daily feeding. It is equally amazing that the water is so azure and all shades of blue but transparent enought to see the wide variety of fish. Before the classical music blares to announce feeding, the natural pool is filled with people. We just dropped by... More

Crystal clear water, endless visibility, giant fishes! We took a private van from Davao city, took us 3,5 hrs to get there, it's better to leave at 4-5 am to avoid the traffic and when you get there it will not be crowded with people so you can take some good pictures n swim. After 11 am it gets very... More

When God created mankind He intends to make them happy so he created nature first before man. And this place is indeed an icon one cannot forget. A SCENERY worth every journey and penny. Entrance fee is fair enough but you will experience is more than enough.. #piaipipiay11travel2015ph

Liked everything ; Swimming in the river, majestic gradient blue water, shallow and bottomless areas, lifeguards, schools of big fish, picnic areas, smiling helpful caretakers, honest people, resident photographers who take your under water pictures, fresh sea food cooked and delivered to your picnic table. The local government did a good job and maintained the surroundings keeping everything clean and... More
