A cheap way to enjoy Siargao

(Photo Credit to the owner)

A cheap way to enjoy Siargao...

Rent a motorbike (sorry if you don't know how to drive motor bike)

*350-400 pesos per day rent will open a window to endless Siargao experience within the entire duration that you have a motorbike.
*50 pesos for 1 litre gasoline. Your 1 litre gasoline can take you to 65 kilometers of Siargao experience if you are using scooters with FUEL INJECTION technology (yamaha MIO soul i, Yamaha MIO, note that there are MiO sporty scooters that consume gasoline like a monster) . 3 litres and you can tour around the island already and get back to your accomodation with extra gas.

Why rent a motorbike?
*You can visit spots that have NO entrance fees. Here are the spots that have good sand and clean waters without an entrance fee. Park and Go at your own convenience. Can go to isolated areas where 4-wheels cannot penetrate.
1. Malinao beach (perfect every sunrise, less people)
2. Cabuntog beach (better during hightide, sunrise)
3. Union beach (go during lowtide and you will enjoy a sandbar bigger than kawhagan)
4. Talisay beach, Union (long beach with leaning coconut trees for photo purposes, good sunset)
5. Pacifico beach (not for kids, strong current, good sand, long beach, perfect during sunrise)
6. Baybay beach (good for kids, long beach, perfect during lowtide, adult will enjoy during hightide, perfect during sunrise)
7. Garcia Beach (good for kids, long beach, perfect during lowtide, adult will enjoy during hightide, perfect during sunrise)
8. Alegria beach (good for kids, long beach, perfect during lowtide, adult will enjoy during hightide, perfect during sunrise)
9. Tangbo beach (good for kids, long beach, perfect during lowtide, adult will enjoy during hightide, perfect during sunrise)
9. A - Caridad beach, Pilar (good during hightide for swimming, long beach, sunrise)
10. Secret spots (there are plenty of secret spots around the island, just follow the national road (high-way) and you will see rockformations, mini falls, path leading to barangay roads and beach areas. BE CAREFUL AND ALWAYS PRIORITIZE YOUR SAFETY, better explore Siargao in groups. Explore Siargao and meet new people. It is better than paying loads of money to a single "common" spot.

Secret Spots to find? 
1. Old Mangrove tree in the waters (full of fireflies at night) near the national highway in the northern part of Siargao
2. Sunset heaven (perfect sunset with sun setting in the ocean) in the North
3. Enchanted Tree (with history of kids drowning)
4. Little hawaii (common and easy to find)
5. The sailor from the pacific monument (located in the north, surrounded with private properties)
6. The tip of siargao (only accessible by walking in the beach) North of Siargao
7. TagNok Kingdom (experience a perfect mangrove view with tagnok bites)
8. Cave with thousands of Bats (ask the locals, hard to find, biggest cave I have ever been in siargao) middle of Siargao
9. River in a grassy land (cold waters, leaning coconut, enchanting than maasin) middle of Siargao
10. Mouth of a giant (big cave that leads to the ocean) somewhere in the east
11. Rock pool facing the pacific ocean (perfect for getting nude while enjoying the view, no people around for sure, hidden) somewhere going to North
12. Hidden grassland (between two big rocks, super secret spot, crushing waves in front)
Etc.... im tired typing... go and explore

***Be friendly and meet more locals, KNOW SIARGAO from the locals, hear our stories and myths, legends, and facts about our place***

Thank you!

Siargao: House Bill 6349


House Bill 6349 seeks to spur sustainable and responsible growth by creating a 40 meter land easement beginning at the shoreline and reckoned inwards the land areas.

From the end of the easement perimeter and 3 kilometers inwards, the bill then reclassifies and converts the land areas covered into commercial, residential, and tourist places.

Further, this bill declares the Siargao Island and all the surrounding islands therein as ecotourism zones. To manage the development of the areas herein specified, this bill creates the Siargao Development Authority to ensure the sustainable development of the islands.

Sugba Lagoon


Written by The Traveller's Chronicle PH

It's definitely a paradise hidden within islands and hectares of magroves forest. About an hour boat ride from Del Carmen, Sugba Lagoon is one of the most popular place to go in Siargao. This spectacular lagoon is surrounded by mountains and mangroves.

Once you reach the Sugba Lagoon, you will dock at a hut which is built in the middle of the lagoon. There are plenty of things to do there so you definitely won’t get bored. You can jump right into the cold water of the Lagoon from a platform made by locals.You can do stand up paddle boarding or just swim. If you get tired, you can rest at the hut and enjoy the view of the Lagoon.

You can also add to your itinerary the Kawhagan Island just nearby the Sugba lagoon. The island has a long white sandbar which you can enjoy.

The Summer Jewell of Mindanao

The Summer Jewell of Mindanao
Written by: Arnez Jewell Dotillos-Manlimos

Although summer about to say its goodbyes, there is a place in the south-eastern part of the Philippines, where it never meets its end. If you haven’t gone to a summer vacation yet, we highly suggest you to consider visiting the amazing paradise located at Mindanao, the Siargao Island.

We have always dreamt to spend our summer vacation at Siargao and when it finally happened, it did not, even a little, disappointed us. Our first destination was the famous Magpupungko Rock Pools, its scenic sand beach with natural rock formations & tidal pools will leave your mouth open in amazement and admiration. The crystal clear blue water made us all speechless. And if you are into jumping,there are multiple spots to get your backflip on. Magpupungko could really makes appreciate how astonishing nature could be.

Our next stop was the Naked Island, an island made of sand and some little bushes alone. Yes, there is nothing more to see there, but it’s being like that is what makes it precious. Its fine white sand embraces your feet as you walk along the island. It is indeed worth visiting.

And last but certainly not the least was the Daku Island. It is a pretty good chill spot. There you can venture into the palm forest. Its fine white sand, warm hearted locals, beautiful scenery and clear blue water will make you never want to leave. Daku Island is so perfect that you will know what "love at first sight" really is. This Island should really be witnessed and experienced by everyone.

Overall, the trip we just had at Siargao was indeed a memory worthy to treasure. What makes our trip even more satisfying was because we were able to experience it together with dear friends. Remember, nothing could make a place endearing, but being with people you know you love and loves you back.
