The island has a beautiful coastline, white sands, crystal clear water, mangroves, caves, and the island is surrounded by palm trees. The biodiversity of the surrounding waters, the big and dramatic waves, made Siargao the PERFECT spot for the internationally acclaimed Surfing Cup.

Tak Tak Falls
The only waterfall in the island in which one can have a cliff and tree jumping on the top of the falls. These are the typical activities in the area. If you love adventure, try to copy the local master in climbing in a coconut palm to the top. They are friendly and welcoming to tourists. They can speak English, Tagalog, and their native dialect, “Visayan language.” Most of them are fishermen (game fishing has been popular on the island) and farmers as their primary means of livelihood. So hang out with these locals and eat their native delicacies to have an enjoyable and memorable experience at Siargao.
One can visit Siargao from Manila, Cebu, and Davao, with flights reaching the island daily.
