How to get to Siargao?
Getting there by airplane is the easiest and most convenient way. There are 2 daily direct flights to Siargao from Cebu City only (07:40, 12:45), so if you’re traveling from Manila or any other destination prepare for a layover in Cebu. There are also flights to Surigao Airport, the closest airport that isn’t on Siargao itself, and those are usually cheaper. From Surigao you’ll need to take a ferry that takes 2-4 hours, starting 06:00am with the last one departing at 12:30pm.
An alternative way to get there is taking the night ferry from Cebu to Surigao. The trip is 11 hours long (07:00pm – 06:00am), and you can choose between a private cabin, tourist class with air-conditioning, or economy class. It’s strongly advised to refrain from the economy class as the price difference between it and the tourist class isn’t worth the inconvenience.

Siargao island hopping toursThis is one of the most memorable activities on this island, and is as good as the top island hopping destinations in the country. The beaches are white, there are many secluded islands, and the view is breathtaking. Most organized tours will take you the 3 main islands, but you can also change the itinerary if your’e looking for a more unique experience.
The three famous islands are Naked Island, Dako Island, and Guyam Island. Naked Island is a tiny bare white sand Island in the middle of the ocean. You can sit in the sand for a while, sunbath, and swim around. The feeling there is a bit ephemeral, lying on a tiny bed of sand surrounded by deep blue waters.
Dako Island is the bigger island of the three, and has a small community living on it. They arranged a number of small cabanas, a small shop and restaurant where you can have a simple lunch and grab a couple of drinks. Go around the island and see the kids play outside. Say hello to the locals and get the feel of how it is to live on such a small and remote island, with life so different than your own.
Water sports and diving
Diving in Siargao is often overlooked, due to the island being so acclaimed for surfing. Even so, the Island offers some great dives. There are more than 30 dive sites with beautiful rock formations, caves, corals, slopes, and plenty of fish and marine life. Diving is a great way to break your surfing routine, and another awesome activity for anyone visiting the island.
As in any other place in the Philippines you don’t have to be a certified diver and can learn and get certified here. That said, in our opinion there are better places for that which are more beginners friendly and offer easier dives. Regardless, the equipment and guidance of the dive clubs in Siargao is of exceptional standards and you can count on getting the best treatment. If you want to add diving to your Siargao vacation package just add it to your wish list, and we will make sure it’ll be included in your travel plan.
Professional game fishing is also one of the activities Siargao Island has to offer, and if that’s your thing we will gladly book a game fishing tour for you. Trips include the boat, gear, lunch and drinks. The fish that are usually caught are mahi-mahi, tuna, yellowtail, and blue marlin. The price starts at 70$ (3500P) and up, depending on the number of people and type of boat you choose. For more information it’s best to contact us directly.
Land tours in Siargao
Siargao is a great place to seek adventure. There are plenty of day tours you can take to keep you occupied, and make your holiday more diverse and exciting. The attractions below can easily be included in your package, just add them to your wishlist.
Magpupungko tidal pools in Pilar town are a must see spot in Siargao. During low tide the unique rocky floor of this beach turns into three separate pools, with crystal clear water, corals and fish. There are even some rock formations on the boundaries and inside the pools themselves you can jump from. If you continue to explore the beach beyond the tidal pools you will reach Magpupungko rock, and beyond it there is a secret beach. This place makes an amazing spot for a relaxed afternoon. You can get to Magpupungko on your own, on a rented scooter or a trike, or we can arrange a tour for you with private transportation.
Sugba lagoon in Del Carmen municipality is in the middle of the second largest mangrove system in the Philippines. The way to the lagoon is through the mangrove forest, and is home to the largest salt water crocodile species. You don’t need to worry as they rarely come out and don’t attack boats, so if you do manage to spot one from your boat you should consider yourself lucky. The lagoon itself is very beautiful and quiet, surrounded by towering limestone cliffs. The water is crystal clear, with many stingless jellyfish swimming around.
All you have to do is reach Del Carmen by bike or van, then book the guided boat tours from the tourism office in the port. These cost around 30$(1650P) and are good for 8 people. When you arrive you can rent snorkels and small bamboo rafts, as well as buy some snacks. Don’t count on their gear’s quality and availability – it’s usually better to bring your own snorkel and your own lunch. If you decide to book through us we will arrange an all-inclusive tour – with transportation, buffet lunch, drinks, SUP, and snorkeling gear.
Bucas Grande, also known as Socorro, is available as a day tour from Siargao Island (as it’s actually the southern part of Siargao Island). It’s somewhat similar to Sugba Lagoon, but far more exotic. We recommend travelling to Bucas Grande for more than a day, especially if your’e seeking a romantic getaway. Over there you can visit the famous Sohoton Cove – you can read all about in our Bucas Grande page. The tours range in price from 120- 240$ depending on the vessel you choose (pump-boat/speedboat, 1hr and 30 minutes/3 hrs one-way).

Siargao is cheaper compared to all popular tourists spots, and you’ll get greater value for the same price. Another good thing about Siargao is, that when it’s the off season at other destinations in the Philippines, it’s actually the best time to visit Siargao. However, if you wish to incorporate diving into your vacation, Siargao isn’t the place to do so. There are a few dive clubs, but this place is not known for its dives, so it’s better to do them elsewhere.
Palawan offers a great deal, and if you’re traveling to the Philippines on the right season, you should definitely pay it a visit if you can. Many activities are better done in Palawan, such as diving and island hopping (though island hopping in Siargao is really great too, but nothing matches Palawan). Palawan like Siargao takes more effort to get to usually, and you’ll to dedicate enough time there to enjoy everything it has to offer.
Bohol on the other hand is a small and compact place that is much easier to get around in. You won’t have to hire a motorbike and will have organized tours that take you to all the tourist spots. So, if you want a place that can be fully enjoyed within a short period of time Bohol is better. Diving and snorkeling there is also among the best in the Philippines. Even though high season overlaps with Palawan, being in the heart of Visayas, this place has a better climate with no pronounced seasons. Visiting Bohol is usually fine all year round.
If you feel you have to choose, the season should be the main consideration. If it’s high season at Palawan go there, and on Siargao’s high season come here. There is a great chance your way here will go through Cebu City, and in that case you can easily visit Bohol too. in any case you should contact us, and we’ll help plan the best package for you.
