Siargao

Siargao Island, a paradisiacal white sand island just northeast of Mindanao, in the south of the country, is the ideal spot for a remote tropical getaway. The island is known as the surfing capital of the Philippines due to its sparkling azure waves that crash perfectly into shore. Because of this, the island has a relaxed atmosphere populated by friendly locals and tourists, from celebrities to backpackers, alike.

Surrounding its powdery sand shores, the water features vivid coral reefs located in the Philippines Trench - an extremely deep part of the ocean, that are teeming with vibrant sea life. This, of course, makes Siargao Island not only a surfers' paradise, but also a divers and snorkelers.

The island, which is shaped like a teardrop, is a part of the region of Mindanao, though not attached to the island itself, and contains the largest mangrove forest reserves in the area. Luxury tourism remains very much a burgeoning market on Siargao, adding to its rustic charm.

EXPERIENCES

EXPERIENCES

Diving and Snorkeling

With such a plethora of activity going on under the water, most visitors to the island want to do more than stay on dry land. The ultra-deep Philippines Trench, once regarded as the deepest point on Earth, is a diver’s dream.

Fishing

Game fishing is a popular activity on Siargao Island, particularly in Pilar Town, where unique fishing-oriented homestays can be arranged.

Island Hopping

Siargao is surrounded by a host of stunning tropical islands, easily accessible by boat. Guyam island is a particular crowd favorite as an island hopping destination.

Surfing

Siargao is home to some of the best waves in the world, and none are better than Cloud 9. The wave is known for its thick, hollow tubes, and its probably the most famous wave in all of the Philippines. Every year, there is an annual surfing competition here, which has received much publicity and attention amongst the surfing community.
