Just want to make more people aware of the best place in Philippines, Siargao island! many overlook this place cos they are too busy planning the backpacker route that is palawan, islands on cebu and boracay. I have been traveling Phiiippines for about 3 years now and even though i love most of it I always keep coming back to siargao. Nowhere in philippines do you find so much to do, so friendly locals and so little tourists. Its famous for the great surfing but lately more people been coming here for the unspoiled beaches and tropical islands that is found around here. Because it is a part of mindanao many people avoid it, do not do that, its perfectly safe here. Two flights a week from cebu, mondays and fridays, daily flights manila-surigao. -snip-
You will not be regret it. Any questions and i would be happy to answer then for you.

I agree. Siargao is just one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines. It's not the usual place people go to. Plus, surfing there is much, much fun.

Siargoa looks awesome, i cant wait to go surfing there. I am worried about its location though, a HUGE amount of kidnappings (of foreigners) occur in that area, local media often try to cover it up due to tourism needs but it is in a very dangerous area. I have heard they sometimes insist of tourists taking a provided bodyguard with them, this might be just for some individuals though.
