SIARGAO ISLAND FOR 3000 PESOS, INCLUDES TRAVEL GUIDE, ITINERARY, PLACE TO STAY AND HOW TO GET HERE

Siargao travel guide
Siargao Island is the "surfing capital of the Philippines." This tear shape island is the top destination in the province of Surigao del Norte. It is indeed a surfers paradise because of the gigantic waves but if you're not into surfing, like me, you can still enjoy the pristine beaches, explorable caves, fresh surrounding, and unique island lifestyle. With time pressure, from the province of Dinagat Islands, I traveled to Siargao to discover its beauty. Below are the three destinations I visited:

The Cloud 9 Siargao
Our first destination was the Cloud 9 boardwalk and view deck - one of the most visited spots in Siargao. Entrance Fee: 50 pesos. The waves here are surfing perfect with a fresh sea breeze. Afraid of the waves? That's okay, you can just walk on the boardwalk and do an amazing photo shoot. This spot is picture perfect in the afternoon because of the golden skyline with the surfers standing on their boards on top of the rolling waves.

Guyan Beach Siargao
Next was the secret beach or Guyan beach. This spot has an amazing and relaxing ambiance because it is landscaped with palm and talisay trees, with the green grass on the ground. Guyan beach is surrounded with a cool and crystal waters, perfect for sun bathing.

The Coconut Plantation Siargao
While we were en-route to Pacifico, we passed by the the roads decorated with draft live mango trees and tall coconuts trees present on both sides, such a gorgeous landscape. Then, we also passed by the coconut plantation, another top destination in Siargao. On this spot, the sea breeze is cool and fresh with a wide view of the countless coconut trees and mountains slopes. 

The Pacifico Siargao
Our last destination was the famous Pacifico, the biggest surfing spot in Siargao Island. Very self explanatory, its name is given because it is facing the Pacific Ocean, having said that, the waves here are for expert surfers. The gigantic waves are powerful that can easily wipe out someone.

Though my journey here lasted overnight, I was able to grasp what Siargao island can offer to tourist and visitors. I was able to see the lifestyle of the smallest locals to the most expensive hotels and resorts. I know and can feel that I will definitely be back here.
