San Juanico Strait (Filipino: Kipot ng San Juanico) is a narrow strait in the Eastern Visayan region in the Philippines.[1] It separates the islands of Samar and Leyte and connects the Carigara Bay (Samar Sea) with the San Pedro Bay (Leyte Gulf). It is about 38 kilometres (24 mi) long.[] At its narrowest point, the strait is only 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) wide.[2]

The strait is crossed by the San Juanico Bridge. The HVDC Leyte-Luzon power line also crosses the strait through an overhead line at 11°23?36?N 124°59?04?E / 11.39333°N 124.98444°E / 11.39333; 124.98444, using a tower on an uninhabited island in the strait.[] The Tacloban City harbor, the main port of the Eastern Visayas, is on Cancabato Bay at the southern entrance of the strait.[3]
