There is something hidden in Siargao beyond being the Best Surfing destination in the country. Something that makes my heart flutter, something close to Palau.

Siargao is located in the province of Surigao Del Norte, southeast of the Island Philippines. It is home to diverse flora and fauna and many unspoiled white beaches, coral reefs, mangroves, lagoons, caves and more. Explore the nearby Daku, Bucas Grande, Twin, Guyam, Caub and Naked Islands. Experience the best of Philippine’s nature has to offer.

A surfer’s dream destination, Siargao Island presents huge & powerful waves. Get lucky and join the world’s best surfers riding  the great waves. This extreme sport is fast becoming popular to tourists and locals alike. Best  to go during the months of August to November where Southwest Monsoon drives the wind offshore making the waves reach its maximum peak.

Cloud 9 is known worldwide as one of the best surfing break. The perfectly thick and hollow tubes is a must experience for international surfers. The provincial government sponsors an Annual Siargao Cup, a domestic and international surfing competition.

For those not  a fan of surfing and prefers a serene coast, there are beach destinations that offers solace and tranquility. One can just have a leisure walk or watch the sunset at the beach.

But what I’m most eager to see is the Jellyfish lake in Bucas Grande Island. It is the local counterpart of the Rock Islands of Palau in Micronesia.

Ever heard of stingless jellyfish lake? Travelers need not to look somewhere far, we have a wonderful haven within the country. A plethora of non-poisonous jellyfish exist on one of the hidden lagoons.  Watch them spread out into the glistening blue waters.


Now, that makes me want to book a trip to the Surfing Capital of the Philippines, pronto.

Its my pleasure to share with you photos taken by Xtian Ong. For more photos, see his multiply account.

Can’t wait to Surf and Swin with gooey jellyfish!

    It was unfortunate that we had to cancel our visit to Sohoton Cove where these stingless jellyfish are found. It was raining when we were in Surigao so it was bad news for our kids. It would have been a good first stop in our 60-day road trip at island travel. We’re still hoping we can so it again some other time.
