Siargao island is becoming more popular every year, not a big surprise as it is one of the most beautiful islands in the Philippines. It started as a surfing paradise and has slowly become a touristic destination for any kind of tourist. However this increase in visitors has not yet affected its autenticity and charm.

Meeting the locals is always an interesting experience in the Philippines as they are usually very open and willing to interact with the visitors.

I took a direct flight from Manila and the view from the plane while we approached the island was amazing.

I decided to stay in the town called Pacifico which happens to be very relaxed and laid back if compared with the fast growing and bigger General Luna, where most of the accomodation can be found.

Pacifico was deffinetly the best place to stay in my opinion as the vibe of the town was lovely and the mix of locals and visitors in perfect balance.

The local boats called Bangka are made of wood and with two characteristic poses on the sides to maintain balance. These boats have very little draft, which allows them to navigate very shallow waters.


Surfing is clearly one of the most popular activities in siargao, the island has a lot of surf spots for all levels

The island also has a multitude of waterfalls and caves. My favorites without a doubt Tayangban cove and in the photo Taktak waterfall

In the photo you can see one of my favorite towns on the island: Caridad. The town is made up of wooden houses and the customs are more traditional than in other towns in Siargao. From the first moment I saw it, I fell in love with its beach, atmosphere and crystal clear waters
