Hi, Guys Welcome back to my channel!

San Antonio, officially the Municipality of San Antonio (Waray: Bungto san San Antonio; Cebuano: Lungsod sa San Antonio; Tagalog: Bayan ng San Antonio), is a 5th class municipality in the province of Northern Samar, Philippines. According to the 2020 census, it has a population of 8,882 people.

Its territory is coterminous with Dalupiri Island, just off the western coast of Samar Island at the south end of the San Bernardino Strait. The island’s white beaches are considered an “undisturbed paradise” and future “premier tourist destination” in the Eastern Visayas region. San Antonio is also unique, as it is the only municipality in Northern Samar that also speaks Cebuano due to the influx of Boholano and Cebuano settlers in the past. The locals speak Waray which is the predominant language of Northern Samar and it is the main lingua franca on the island.

San Antonio is one of the manufacturing centers of dynamite chemicals like ammonium nitrate, used in the manufacture of blasting caps that are sold in the other provinces of Samar island. It was learned that the island has been tagged by the police as one of the areas in the manufacture of the dynamite blasting caps.

Chief Supt. Abner Cabalquinto, Regional VIII Police Director, disclosed that the police operatives in Northern Samar confiscated 50 bags of ammonium nitrate in the town of San Antonio. However, the suspects were able to escape and were alluded to arrest by the police.

Because of the prevalence of homemade dynamite, blast fishing is a perennial problem in the region. In 1994, an Italian tourist was killed and another severely injured while diving when a local fisherman dropped his dynamite on top of them. As a result, the Flying Dog Beach Resort, established in the early 1990s, decided to cease its operation.

The Dalupiri Ocean Power Plant is a proposed tidal fence generating station across the Dalupiri Passage between the islands of Dalupiri and Samar.
