Living the island life at Siargao.
Siargao is surf capital of the Philippines. It is one of the best 10 surfing locations in the world, with excellent waves at famous Cloud 9. This is where national and international surf competitions are held in september each year. The island (you can drive around in few hours) is surrounded by small islands and virgin white sand beaches, decorated with palm trees and littered with shells. It’s a place of peace and a quiet pace, no loud parties or annoying vendors. It’s a place that, so far, has not yet been spoiled by mass tourism.
Most visitors come for surfing, although the area has much to offer to non-surfers as well. With a bunch of excellent beaches, numerous idyllic islands and attractions as the Sugba lagoon, a great rockpool, famous Sohoton cave, this island remains a ‘hidden’ paradise in the Philippines. With a wide array of excellent accommodation, restaurants and bars, it has something to offer to everyone and many people find themselves staying much longer than expected.
Like me. I intended to come only 2 weeks, it’s been more than 2 months now. And I still haven’t had enough of this place. Actually, I plan to stay a while longer and further experience ‘living the island life’, exploring all of its locations and capturing them as good as I can. See my Philippines section under Travel Imagez to find all of my Philippines travel photography. There’s a large section about Siargao and the surrounding islands. Below you’ll find a few favourites of different locations and islands here in Siargao.
