Places to include in your travel bucket list.

Summer is upon us and now we begin the countdown to how many places could we go before the rainy season begins. When it comes to vacation places, La Union and Cebu have always been popular choices, so why not visit Siargao next? PSA: There’s much more to the ‘Surfing Capital of the Philippines‘ than you think.

Siargao Island

Siargao is an island located Southeast of Manila, off the coast of Surigao del Norte. It is one of the country’s relatively undiscovered treasures not just for its beautiful scenery, but also for its local eats.

Quick tip:

Don’t have a Siargao itinerary yet? Here’s are a few activities you can try if you don’t know what to do in Siargao:

  • Surf at Cloud 9
  • Go island hopping
  • Explore and Cliff Jump at the Magpungko Rock Pools
  • Go spelunking at the Tayangban Cave Pools
  • Swing from a tree and dive into the waters of the Tak Tak Water
  • Marvel at the sunset at Santa Monica Pier

But of course, no vacation is complete without a food trip! So, whether you’re foodies going to Siargao to try their beach eats or you’re adrenaline junkies in need of some fuel that’ll power you in between activities, here are some restaurants you can head on to:
