Unlike the other popular islands, Siargao is still not fully discovered. Not many people know about it and mass tourism hasn’t destroyed it yet.
Siargao Philippine Island, also known as Mermaid Island, has been named the most beautiful island in the world.
It is an island of nearly 46,000 square kilometers with a population of about 200,000. Recognizable parts of this island are the incredible scenery, the crystal clear water of turquoise and the relaxing atmosphere.
To get there, you must travel to Manila, from where you can reach Siargao by a charter flight that takes about 2.5 hours.
Unlike the popular islands, people still didn’t fully discover the island of Siargao. Because of the fact that it still isn’t very popular, mass tourism didn’t arrive on that island yet. There are some great surfing sites, and if you are a fan of beaches with fine, white sand, this will be a paradise for you.
On this island, you can witness beautiful sunrises and sunsets, you can see the unreal Taktak waterfall, and also taste some unusual specialties from the local cuisine.
One of the most popular events on this island is the “Cloud 9 Surfing Cup”, which is hosted every September. Surfing is perfect in Siargao because there is a surf break for all levels. These are some of the most famous surf breaks in Siargao, the surfing capital of the Philippines: Cloud 9, Jacking Horse, Stimpys, Pacifico, Rock Island and Guyan (Secret Beach).
There are many more exciting features on this island, so feel free to visit it when you can!
