Boasting of the best waves in the Philippines, Siargao is often dubbed as the “Surfing Capital of the Philippines.” Once a hidden gem for surfing enthusiasts, this unspoiled tropical paradise has now attracted tourists from all over the world.
Siargao isn’t just for surfers! Its breath-taking beaches lined with swaying palm trees and turquoise waters are more than enough to keep you in awe for days. The teardrop-shaped island’s natural beauty can fill your days with fun activities — from beachcombing through secluded beaches, swimming with “non-stinging” jellyfish, exploring hidden lagoons to paddle boarding, cave hopping and so much more.
This paradise has been on my favorites list ever since my first trip. What impressed me the most were the enchanting lagoons of Sohoton Cove, a natural wonder that’s well worth the 2-hour detour from the Cloud 9 surfing beach. The main island is filled with pristine natural spots as well, including white sand beaches, stunning islets, vast coconut forests, cool tidal pools & more.
If you want to enjoy a laidback island lifestyle, Siargao is one of the best places that tourists can go to. You’ll find a mix of “foreign” and “local” here. It is remote yet accessible, and not too crowded despite the coming of new developments in recent years.
Touchdown at Siargao-Sayak Airport (IAO) or Surigao Airport (SUG). Siargao Airport serves flights from Manila & Cebu. You can also ride a ferry to Dapa Port in Siargao from Surigao City in mainland Mindanao.
