A coastline blessed with stunning natural wonders devoid of mass tourism, Surigao del Sur is your dream holiday get-away.
While most tourists hightail mainland Surigao del Norte for the big swells of Siargao Island (also part of Surigao del Norte), it has its own attractions to flaunt.
The mere mention of Siargao Island connotes images of surfing. Indeed this surfing mecca in Mindanao is hailed as one of the best in the country. Aussie and European surfers find their way here.
As one of the locals claimed, “Dinagat is so rich that its mineral deposits could pay the entire debt of the Philippines.”
Cabadbaran may be unheard of, unlike the neighboring Butuan City, but this premier city is actually Agusan del Norte’s capital.
Butuan often graces the pages of history books. Known as one of the oldest settlements in the Philippines, its rich cultural heritage seduces travelers thirsty for ancient history.
Bislig is slowly making its mark in domestic tourism.
While you won’t find any beach here, its bountiful pastoral land, towering mountains and lush wilderness will make you forget its lack of sand and sea.
Consider the modest province Agusan del Norte off-the-beaten track.
Indeed, nothing can encompass nature’s prowess, and CARAGA region is an impeccable testament to this. The region is hemmed by emerald mountains clad in dense wilderness, ragged coastline lapped by turquoise waters, bountiful pastoral lands, gorgeous waterfalls running from rainforests, and abysmal yet stunning cave formations.
