During our last trip to Siargao in November, we stayed here for a week (as in Monday to Monday) kasi twice weekly lang connecting flights from Manila. We stayed at the Cloud 9 area - in Ocean 101 since we were surfing.

Ocean 101 is a great lovely place to stay at. Their restaurant has a lot of options and it's fairly priced kasi good sizes yung serving and most importantly MASARAP :D
 
@like_bree - you can do island hopping to some of the closer islands like Dako, Guyam and Naked Island since you have a child with you. They're very near General Luna so di matagal ang biyahe. Estimate cost of the banca trip for these 3 islands is PHP 1500 (negotiated price). Bring food though cause there are no restaurants.

Baka kasi di advisable ang Bucas Grande/Sohoton island hopping trip since you have a small kid and it's a bit more than 2 hours trip each way.

Some other islands you can island hop to are Mam-on and La Janosa - these are about 1 1/2 hour banca ride away (1 way) from General Luna.

If you're not surfing, you better stay in the General Luna area instead of Cloud 9. An old but established place to stay at is Patrick's On The Beach.

We rented motorbikes and went for a couple of days around Siargao island. OK naman yung motorbike kasi may surf rack sa side so you can bring your boards and surf in remote beaches up north. Some of the roads are unpaved but still quite alright (unless it's raining). Madami din naman cemented parts.

I really really love Siargao! I hope it doesn't turn into the next Boracay!

you can go to Siargao without a planned itinerary. if madami kayo, hire a multicab tapos ask na lang kayo sa driver saan maganda pumunta. tapos ikot ikot na lang kayo. don't worry in siargao, mababait ang mga tao dun and super mura ng food.

about 6 years ago, i traveled to siargao alone kasi i fell in love with the place and surfing. i stayed there for a week all by myself.

it may hardly be of use as the trip was 6years ago but just to give me a rough idea, how much did the weeklong trip cost you?

^I just don't know how long it would take from Surigao City to Surigao del Sur. We've been to Brittania in Surigao Sur last April and the sand is comparable to Boracay, sis. There are about 6-7 small islands that you can go to. Nice place and affordable. There is no accomodations yet though that time pero construction was ongoing na din.

You can order fish from the residents and have them cooked in one of the islands. Hope this helps. :)
Speak your mind. Don't be shy.

Been to Surigao del Sur last weekend and visited Enchanted River and Tinuy.an falls. It was my 2nd time na pero I still loved enchanted river. ang ganda talag ng tubig dun. Nag enjoy rin kami sa tinuy.an falls.

maulan dun ngayon. We left Tinuy.an late afternoon na so madilim na yung daan and sobrang lakas ng ulan. nag zero visibility yung daan. that was the most challenging and scary part we had.

I just came back from 4 days in Siargao and even if I was not able to explore other islands, I had a grand time surfing and staying at the beach. Sobrang virgin island ng Siargao! And totoo, inexpensive!

Wrote about it on my blog :)

Hi Happy Sole, how did you go from Surigao to Tinuy-an? And how much is the fare? We are planning to go there on December. I plan to book Manila to Butuan flight then go to Tinuy-an falls then early next day, Butuan to Surigao to go to Bucas Grande. 

Thanks sis!
