    Hi Leahrae,

    Perfect site with a perfect Siargao presentations. Very captivating content Siargao offers breathtaking scenery and tons of activities for the adventurous ones. Mostly attract for pointing out that it is unspoiled and yet it is sparsely developed.

    the attractions that you mention are all island hopping activities? If so then visitors should at least booked a week of stay in the island to visit and enjoy your featured island attractions, my assumption correct?

    Enjoy reading and reviewing this article.

    The idea of visiting Siargao Philippines is so tempting. The descriptions listed are so vivid and inviting. Although I am not a surfer, I would love to catch the competition that is held there. Those beautiful turquoise waterways are breathtaking too. I have never seen so many coconut trees in one location; nonetheless, the picture was amazing. I am definitely adding Siargao to my bucket list.

    I would love to surf Cloud 9’s World famous waves. I have a friend that did and has some awesome pics to back it up. I would also like to explore the enchanting Sohoton Cove National Park.

    I have a new camera. And am excited to visit these famous locations, enjoy the experience and get good pictures!

    Besides these two I just mentioned, what other outdoor activities would you recommend me to do in Siargao?

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You know as far as activities go, it really depends on your interests for sure.  But surfing would be at the top of the list to me as well as the Sohoton Cove National Park.  Make sure to visit the rock pools at Magpupungko.  That is also something I would not miss. Also do not miss Naked Island, Daku Island and Guyam Island.  Hope that helps 🙂

    You provided some great information in the article:

    A couple of suggestions:

    1. How much do the tours cost? 

    2. Is there a way to link the best places to visit to the tours that are available? Or a suggestion if each site is a day long adventure or a few hours. 

    3. Would a map be beneficial that shows where the sites are and hotels?

    Siargao in the Philippines sounds like a perfect paradise for surfers. Simple, secluded, and pristine, what more could you ask more? Cloud 9 would be a great place to watch surfers on the big waves and feel the cool breeze. Heaven to me and the joy of this teardrop island.

    Can you go snorkeling on Daku Island?

      I don’t think it could get any better Lily.  Cloud 9 is a must if you are in Siargao. And yes, Daku is known as a snorkeling and surfing hot spot.  You can definitely go snorkeling here.

    The beach is a mystery and attraction to me. Before now I have no experience with any beach. Even today that is how it is. But I am writing about a health niche and discovered that negative ions that are beneficial to health enhancement are in abundance in beaches.

    I have keenly read through the whole article and the explicitly and concise description has huge influence on me. But I have look for answers for these questions and are not included in the post.  Lots of great information.  I’m looking forward to vacationing to Siargao one day soon for sure!
