How to get to Siargao Island in the Philippines

How to get to Siargao Island in the Philippines

Siargao or Cloud 9 - is almost synonymous to surfing! And as being passionate surfer - once I heard of it I wanted to go there.

But of course there are more than the waves, there are other attractions to do on the island.

  • natural pools and beach of Magpupungko in the Pilar
  • sand bar and white sand islands off General Luna
  • the underwater caves and unspoiled sites around the island
  • SUP in Sugba Lagoon;
  • bird watching
  • or explore other beaches, waterfalls, and natural attractions of the place.

It is charming eco-tourism destination.
