Island Hopping Siargao Style

I knew that Siargao was a surfer's haven because of Cloud 9, but for a non-surfer like me, I wanted to do something else. I ended up island hopping to Naked, Daku, and Guyam Island.


I found a boatman willing to take me to the three islands for P800, we agreed on the time and length of the trip for the next day.

Siargao Chronicles: Magpupungko Rock Pool & General Luna

During my trip to Surigao del Norte, I decided to visit Siargao just off the coast of Surigao City and is a 3-hour ferry ride away. I've heard rave reviews about Siargao and wanted to find out if any of those reviews were indeed true. The main reason why I decided to go to Siargao in the first place was to see the stingless jellyfish. I found myself in Socorro, the nearest town to Sohoton National Park, but still couldn't find anybody to come with me. I decided to do something else because it was way to expensive for a solo traveler.

Beauty Amidst Darkness: San Jose, Dinagat Islands

I had a wonderful time in Dinagat Islands, but there was something amiss during my stay on this wonderful province. But that feeling didn't dampen the fun I had on the island.

The Pristine Beaches of Dinagat Islands

I never knew that Dinagat Islands would have a lot to offer tourists. Since I knew very little about this province in my own country, I didn't have any expectations, which worked to my favor.

The Charm of Dinagat Islands

I was intent on visiting this island off the shore of Surigao City, because I knew very little of it. There's nothing like going to a little known place in your own country; the thought of visiting this province tickled my adventurous side.
