Amazing bridge that my fiancée and I enjoyed on the way to her moms in Sabang. I admire the design and magnificent structure in this part of the Philippines. Got to take a few pics and relax with her family going across it.

Well worth the ride north, this is one of the most beautiful bridges I have seen. The bridge soars over the strait and then skips over islands on the Samar side. I always make a point of crossing this whenever I get to visit tacloban.

You can get a jeepney from Tacloban public market. Look for a jeepney saying Sanjuanico bridge. the fare would be Php 20.
