Siargao Island

Head to Cloud 9, walk on the long wooden bridge and watch the adrenaline junkies play with the 9-shaped waves! Stay in Cloud 9 or General Luna where accommodations abound.

But Siargao is not all about surfing.

It’s also well known for game fishing. In fact, a game fishing event is held every summer. The coast abounds with tuna, mackerel, marlin, and even crabs, squids, octopus, and sting rays.

It is also home to some of the postcard-perfect islands in the country. The pretty Naked Island is named such because it is stripped of luxury trappings and even the typical coconut trees.  The nearby Daku Island is the fairest of them all. This unheard of island has powdery white sand hugged by gorgeous aquamarine waters. Unlike Naked Island, Daku is dotted with coconut trees. If you plan to stay overnight, head to Guyam Island, a local favorite.
