This long bridge connecting two islands will be much more appreciated if you read about its history. You will see mini islands below while walking the bridge, and other tourists hopping off from their respective cars to walk through the bridge's pedestrian lane and take pictures of the view. The vast space and fresh air is an experience to have... More

Worth going to this bridge. It is a lovely place for sightseeing and picture taking. Really beautiful place! The bridge is worth the trip even just to experience it. Really a tourist spot. Don't visit Leyte without seeing the San Juanico Bridge!

It was nice seeing a landmark that connects Samar and Leyte provinces. Great view and worth the trip even via public transportation.

On trip advisor it is one of the highlights of Tacloban. It is located at the outskirts of Tacloban so you will need to travel for an hour measured from the Robibson. The view on the bridge is good and relaxing. The view is good, but nothing more then that.

It is the most beautiful bridge I've seen in the Philippines. It s well worth making the trip to San Juanico Bridge. I attempted to cross it since I was told that it was only 2.1 Kim's from Leyte island to Samar....but my fear got in the way. The bridge's seismic gaps move whenever big vehicles pass by. Crossing it... More

Whenever I pass by this bridge I always smile. Great views. Great sea water. Great and sea salty air. Its really great for early morning jog. Its like you visit 2 provinces in just few minutes. Pls be mindful of cars.. Always walk, stroll or jog on the safe side.
