Although the island of Siargao has long been frequented by avid surfers, it’s recently been getting a lot of attention from everybody else. Many people are even beginning to call it the “New Palawan”, for its sudden surge in local tourism. Indulge in these photos of the tear-drop-shaped island and discover why.
It’s called the country’s “Surf Capital” for good reason.
More than just a sport, surfing is a way of life.
Aside from the surf, visitors can also enjoy the island’s gorgeous beaches and surrounding islets.
Non-surfers have nothing to worry about either: the island offers clear, calm waters, a stunning shade of turquoise, and perfect for stand-up paddle boarding, snorkelling and simply relaxing.
Don’t miss out on the island’s inspiring, lush landscapes either.
And who doesn’t love a beautiful sunset by the sea?
But even better than sunset viewing by the sea is surfing in it before a golden-hour backdrop.
