Surigao del Sur

Cagwait Beach may be unheard of—but not for long. This horseshoe-shaped island is fringed with trees and glimmering waters. Swim, get tanned, and camp in this serene enclave.

If you fancy island hopping, then Britania Group of Islands is what you have been missing. Get acquainted with the 24 islets rising above the seafloor.  Marvel at the sight of Kanlota, Taguan, Minasingin, Isla Verde, and Panlanggan Forest Island among others. Then end the day by camping in Boslon Island.

Dive into the deep cerulean waters of the Enchanted River in Hinatuan. Its shallow part that opens to the sea has emerald waters.  At noon, feed the schools of orange fish and be mesmerized by the mystical sight of orange against blue!

Also worth a visit is Lanuza. It’s the secret spot of surfers several years ago, but not anymore.  Go chase the Magkawas Falls and take a dip in its refreshing catch basin. Nearby, you can find the striking Lanuza Marine Park, an impeccable spot for diving and snorkeling!
