No, Virginia, we did not go to Lilliput nor did we see Gulliver or the tiny people known as Lilliputians. We went to a not so popular beach park in San Julian, Eastern Samar --- The Liliputan Rocky Beach Park.
It was the last day of my short vacation in my hometown of Borongan so my folks decided to have some R & R and head on to the beach after the fiesta in our barangay. But instead of just going to Cabong (a favorite place by Boronganons) they decided that we go to the nearby town of San Julian.

It is not your typical beach, the shore line is far so there is no chance to do some HHWWPSSP (Holding hands while walking pa-sway sway pa) but to compensate for the lack of a sandy beach you can see the majestic rock formations that surround the area. The are rock enclosures where you can swim to your hearts content. My cousins and nephews all had a great time in the water.
So if you do get to Eastern Samar, which is not exactly on everyone's travel list, you can check out the Liliputan Rocky Beach Park. I promise, you will have a rockin' good time.
