things to do in siargao

The Philippines’ top surfing destination – Siargao, won the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Award for Best Island in Asia in 2021 and one of the Top Tourist Destinations in the Philippines.

Siargao island is located within the province of Surigao del Norte, Philippines.

Siargao has excellent surfing settings, especially from August to December during the southwest “habagat” monsoon when the primary breeze is offshore.

You can explore three of Siargao’s most sought-after islands in one day on an epic island-hopping experience. The Naked Island would be the first stop on the schedule. Even though its name is unassuming, its immaculate white sands provide one of the most Instagrammable sights anyone has ever seen. 

Daku Island is the most prominent of the three islands. True to its name, which in Visayan literally translates as “large,” the island offers visitors many opportunities for photo ops, water sports, and limitless sunbathing. 

On the island, you may also indulge in a “boodle fight,” a traditional Filipino lunch buffet where you eat a variety of Filipino meals on a banana leaf like a real local. Guyam Island serves as the day’s last stop. There, you can unwind, laze around on the beach, and take in the breathtaking natural scenery of the island.

Surf at Cloud 9

Thick, hollow tubes and quick-barreling right-hand waves that crash over a reef are what makes Cloud 9 famous across the world.

The Cloud 9 wave, best suited for skilled, agile surfers, has been described as a death ride because it crashes against shallow, razor-sharp coral.

Underwater waves are believed to have a force that makes you feel like you’re being drawn into a cocoon. The ride is brief and smooth when conditions are perfect, with waves 5 to 6 feet high.

Swim at Magpaponko Rock Pools

On the east coast of Siargao Island, a natural rock pool called Magpupungko is best explored during low tide.

You must include it in your sights to see in Siargao because it is one of the most well-known tourist attractions.

The rock formations are incredibly sharp, jagged, and harsh, so if you intend to do some cliff jumping, be sure to have a pair of slip-on waterproof shoes or old shoes to climb onto. And the water is just 3 meters deep, so be careful.

You can also book a Siargao land tour, a hassle-free tour if you want to visit the hidden gems in the island.

Cliff Jumping at Tayangban Cave Pool

The rock pool offers two locations for cliff jumping: one is from a 2-meter-high boulder, and the other is from the cliff edge, which is around 5 meters high.

Before you jump, check the water, and ask your guide where to aim. The likelihood of striking the bottom is remote because the rock pool is just 3 to 4 meters deep.
