Live the Island Life on Cloud 9 - Things to Do in Siargao

Siargao Island

Don’t forget the lifestyle you promised yourself. If you haven’t already, promise yourself to visit Siargao Island. 

Siargao is certainly the place to live out your lifestyle dreams while remaining firmly grounded in easy-going simplicity. It’s an island of contrasting lifestyles that merge together to form one unique, unforgettable experience that will keep drawing you back time and again.

Here you will find beachside luxury accommodation and dining, as well as budget friendly (and no less incredible) options, all coming with that cool island vibe that is distinctly Siargao for no extra cost!

If you want to experience the luxury of gently waking to the sound of lapping waves, walking just a few metres from your room to hit the beach and enjoying the fruits of nature for breakfast in world class accommodation, Siargao will give that to you.

If easy-going simplicity is more your vibe, then you’ll love hiring a scooter for a mere 500 pesos a day without the worry of providing proof of a licence, cruising along the coconut tree lined roads, diving into the crystal blue waters of the Philippine Sea, surfing the famous Cloud 9 wave, then chilling with locals and fellow travellers in one of the laidback bars with a San Mig in hand. As you sip your serbesa, more than likely you’ll be feeling the beat of Siargao’s own home grown reggae masters - Dagsa. After a couple more serbesas it’s even more likely that you’ll be beating the bongo drums yourself – Dagsa do love audience participation and often send out the invite to join them in a jam!

If your budget has been broken by the night before, you’ll have no trouble finding a carinderia tucked away from the main roads to fill your stomach for next to nothing. If you’re looking for something more Western, Sairgao is definitely equipped with cafes and restaurants catering for tourists and locals craving smoothies, muesli bowls or burgers.

No matter your style, taste or mood, Siargao has something for everyone wanting to experience an island getaway.
