BERMUDA BEACH RESORT, MACARTHUR, LEYTE

-->
The eastern seacoast of Leyte is not famous for its beaches. Although the sand is fine it is black or gray in color. Since it is also facing the Pacific there are constant waves that one has to be on the alert jumping every now and then when the waves would break. There are also no vegetation or corals and with the constant breaking of the waves snorkeling is not an option. Leyte has always been battered by strong typhoons. I remember after every typhoon the coconut trees would look like wilted candles with just a few leaves and fruits clinging. There would at least be three to five strong typhoons that would slam through the eastern coast of Leyte every year. It was just useless to build beach resorts or even just small kiosks because they would only last for a few months until the next typhoon would blow them away. However, after the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in 1991 it seems that the typhoon path has moved northward to Bicol and even up to central Luzon. The eastern shores of Leyte which before have been eroding that many houses and beach fronts were eaten by the sea have slowly regained their land. My uncle in fact was able to plant rows upon rows of coconut trees as the beach have already widened. Hence, in the past five years, a good number of beach houses have been built along the eastern seashores of Leyte from MacArthur up to Palo.
One such resort that has been developed is the Bermuda Beach Resort in San Pedro, MacArthur, Leyte. It has a wide beach front with large shaded space under the coconut trees. The resort has a number of kiosks for day picnics. There are also rooms for overnight stay:   three rooms with single beds and another three with double beds. The overnight rate is 300 for the single and 350 for the double. 
             Note: The Bermuda Resort has already been closed. The place has been converted as an office of the mining company that is mining magnetite sand in the area. Just too bad.


The Bermuda Beach Resort is in a barrio called San Pedro situated between the towns of Abuyog and MacArthur
