“May all your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view……where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you..” –Edward Abbey


While I still do not have enough words to express my blissful Siargao experience, I’m leaving it to Edward Abbey. Because damn right, he is!

And for what I gained as an avid traveler, I always want to share a few things.

  1. Surfing – Surf boards are rented out in resorts and shops. Once you get to Cloud 9, you’ll find a shop fronting the entrance where they offer good packages. Surf instructor + surf board rent for 1 hour is 500 pesos per head. Instructors suggest that you head off before 7 A.M. or 5 P.M. to catch the best waves.
  2. Eating – At night, take a walk along the road. Series of restaurants and resorts align the roadsides where you’ll find countless dining options. BBQ’s, 5-star restaurants, burrito’s and drinks are conveniently accessible to gratify any mood or craving.
  3. Checking In – We stayed at Point 303 where rooms are big enough for 6 people at a price of 2,500 pesos per night. It’s always better to come in groups because you pay less (duh!). However, there are far cheaper resorts ahead, especially for backpackers like Kermit or Happy Gecko Siargao Backpackers Hostel
  4. Island Hopping – They usually recommend this activity in the morning because they dock the boats at 4pm, or even earlier. You don’t want to reach the 4pm low tide and carry your bags and  wasted asses to the shore. If you want to spend more time on the islands, go in the morning. Dako Island was my favorite. 🙂
