Siargao Island in a Day (DonEscapades)

Siargao Island Philippines…
Your Paradise…

Siargao is a tear-drop shaped island in the Philippine Sea situated 196 kilometers southeast of Tacloban in the province of Surigao del Norte. It has a land area of approximately 437 square kilometres. The east where such Art Skyes coast is relatively straight with one deep inlet, Port Pilar. The coastline is marked by a succession of reefs, small points and white, sandy beaches. The neighboring islands and islets have similar landforms. (For more info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siargao )

So the question is: How do we spend our day around Siargao Island?

That was the questioned I had in mind when I was planning our itinerary for Siargao with my bestfriend. I was on a longer holiday stay in the Philippines while my bestfriend can’t have more than 3days leave from her work. I did some research on how to wisely enjoy those 3 full days on the island and had gotten the idea to join the tour instead for the following reasons:

Siargao Island Philippines
  • It was only the 2 of us.
  • We don’t know how to ride the motorbike / moped which is the main means of transportation around the island.
  • Found a tour package that can almost take us to all the places around the island for a reasonable price and without that extra hassle.
  • We are there for limited days only so we need to explore the place as much as we can.
  • It’s always nice meeting new friends and other people with a purpose of just enjoying those golden free days out from our/their normal DAILY routines.
  • JUST CHILLAX means calming and relaxing and finding your inner peace.

So how did we really spend our full day around the Island of Siargao?

The guide picks us up at our accommodation quite early in the morning by around 6:30am as our 1st stop has a limited time for its visiting hours. We are really looking forward to this tour as we had read about many nice spots recommended almost by everyone who had visited this island.

Magpupungko Beach and Tidal Pools

Magpupungko Beach and Tidal Pools

It took us around 51mins by car according to (Google Map: https://goo.gl/maps/2JdTcwNENy4uLCUD7 ) from General Luna going to our 1st stop of the day. You need to know the timing of the LOW TIDE! Or otherwise the visit to this place will not be very much appreciated. But in case you miss the low tide time on this place, you can still enjoy the local food in the area esp. the ^Buko^ / The Fresh Coconut Juice & the Filipino dessert ^Bukayo^, the beach and the view (we actually came back here for our lunch). This spot is very well known for its Tidal Pools.

Friendly Reminder of the LOW TIDE: https://www.tideschart.com/Philippines/Caraga/Province-of-Surigao-del-Norte/Port-Pilar-(Siargao-Island)/

Fresh Coconut Juices and Bukayo, The View and The Beach

Extra INFO: Bukayo is a Filipino dessert made from sweetened coconut strips. It is traditionally made by simmering strips of young, gelatinous coconut (buko) in water and sinuklob, which is sugarcane muscovado sugar melted into a chewy caramel-like consistency.  From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bukayo

You can buy some refreshments and lunch here…
Smiling but the struggle was real against the current of the sea water and the grey weather, but luckily I was with my bestfriend Yaz whom I had fun with those moments. Indeed, a moment to remember forever…

What I love about this place was the natural rock pools especially appreciated during LOW TIDE with varying depths where one can swim or snorkel. Given that the water is really clear and refreshing plus the sound of the tidal waves making you feel relax. So if you get lucky, you’ll be entertain by some cliff jumpers leaping into the natural pools of salt water. So TIMING is NECESSARY when planning of visiting this place. Plus, I love how the volunteers Kuya’s was there all the time and assisting everyone. I understand how they are being extra observant for us due to the tide that might easily change from LOW to HIGH TIDE. Btw, they are all friendly in offering of taking our photos.

Enjoying at one of the Natural Rock Pools

FRIENDLY REMINDERS:

  • The waves are nice but can be dangerous as well so don’t get too far. I saw some being carried away while swimming in the pool or was just posing for some photos so it’s nothing wrong to be extra attentive of the waves. Luckily no harm had happened to her.
  • Make sure to bring your shoes or wear slippers as you may, as the rocks could sometimes cut you. Just be extra careful as some parts might be slippery as well.
  • Lastly because we opted for a tour package, we aren’t bother about the EXTRA FEES upon entering the area: Entrance Fees, Parking Fees (paying to access the beach is indeed a foreign concept esp. if you are not originally from the Philippines…)

Coconut Roads

Alone with the Coconut Trees

Endless Sea of Palm Trees or Palm Trees Island whatever you call it because the entire island is just surrounded with it and can take your breath away. So no doubt that it got the title ^Top 5 Most Beautiful Island in Asia^, according to ^The Best Islands in the World: 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards^. https://www.cntraveler.com/galleries/2014-10-20/top-30-islands-in-the-world-readers-choice-awards-2014

 So, either you rent a motorbike or go with the tour you’ll surely won’t miss this coconut roads.

Playing hide and seek among these Palm Trees…

Pacifico Areas

Thinking of growing old with your loved one on this tropical paradise…
Enjoying the entire beach for myself…

This place is underrated. Siargao Island is always know for Cloud 9 as the surfing capital in the Philippines. If I haven’t join the tour and made some research about the island before planning my itinerary here, I didn’t even know that this Northern part of Siargao Island existed. It has very clean and longer white sand beaches and no entrance fees. It’s the opposite of Cloud 9 and General Luna, away from the crowded area. With very few people, you can enjoy the tranquility of the place and lounge on it’s golden soft sand the entire day. The waves are the best and love listening to it’s sound which will made you think and ponder about life. Would love to stay here longer the next time I will go to Siargao.

Pacifico Bigwish Beach Resort

For those surf enthusiast this is a good area for surfing.

The Bent Palm Tree

The Insta-Famous Bent Palm Tree

The Insta-Famous Bent Palm Tree in Maasin River along the bright red Maasin Bridge in Siargao. Yes, I tried and climbed this tree twice but only managed to swing once everytime hajjj (a total epic fail but at least i tried my best twice…) It looks easier than doing it. But yeah, I won’t ever miss doing it bcoz ^Life Is Too Short^ of not trying everything you can. Oh yeah better luck next time to me. Sometimes we just need to get out of our shells to learn and experience great things. So for now, cheers to more adventures and maybe epic fail/s along the road…

Sometimes we just need to get out of our shells to learn and experience great things…

Back story: The Kuya’s on this place was really supportive. They were there assisting and encouraging me to try again until I get that perfect swing. They even showed me the other way of getting that perfect swing but didn’t dare to do so bcoz I was already happy with my achievements for that day plus I was saving my energy for the next place… (check it on my youtube channel both my epic fail and the perfect swing…) I really did appreciate them on pushing me on achieving that goal. As they said, this is unlimited climb so try until you get that perfect swing or until you ended up losing all your energy as you may. So, CHEERS to all of them.

Maasin River and the Secret Lagoon

Maasin River where the Insta-Famous Bent Palm Tree is located…

You won’t ever miss this place bcoz of the Bright Red Maasin Bridge. This is the location of the Insta-famous Bent Palm Tree in Siargao and all the tarzan swings. Maasin River and the Secret Lagoon runs off the nearby mountains and weaves it’s way downstream through a small village known as Maasin. Our guide asked us if we wanted to go to the secret lagoon after we will try our luck on that perfect swing. We readily said  YES, and pay the necessary extra fee for that side trip for our extra small boat trip along the Maasin River and to it’s Secret Lagoon. The decision was made easily bcoz it seems everyone coming from that small side trip came back with their happy faces and of course we are curious about it.

Can’t get enough with the green lushes of this place…
Enchanting River…
At the Maasin River Secret Lagoon ..

We really loved and enjoyed it bcoz as if we were on a spa just listening to the rowing sound of the small boat while the birds was happily chirping around us with a side stories from our guide. Plus, we can’t get enough with the green lushes of the place. The guides were very friendly and very accommodating and their smiles are contagious. I love how they are sharing about different views especially about the Secret Lagoon. You can actually have some fresh coconut juice while chilling in the Secret Lagoon. And what, I personally notice they always offer to take some lovely photos of us like you are with your personal photographer, which is a big POSITIVE PLUS in this island.

Tayangban Cave Pool

Tayangban Cave Pool – orientation area…
Tayangban Cave Pool

I remember upon reading the name of the place as soon as we came there: Tayangban Cave Pool. My expectation was the typical cave adventure (the Darkness, all these Stalactites and Stalagmites, Rock Formation, Bats, and etc…. wait EMERALD ROCK POOLS and TWIN CENOTES hmmm???…), so I got curious and excited. Location from General Luna is at least 30mins: https://goo.gl/maps/WGRZGS51RcxgGS8s9 . Before entering the cave, we needed to sign something, inform us that it will be a wet adventure so we can left our stuffs with them and making sure if incase we are taking mobile phones & cameras that they are well protected. Our guide from the tour had lend me his waterproof camera case so I decided to bring my phone with me. We had our local guide with his torch on and oriented us we follow him inside the cave. Entering the cave might be scary as it’s a journey down a slippery natural rock staircase and the water was about waist deep, and some parts are deeper with anchored ropes and some bamboo structures to help you through if you are not good in swimming. As I rather swim, so I always asked the guide if that part is ok for me to swim or not as some part had big stones in between, which unfortunately I can’t see anything. The journey was fun as it was total darkness except for one torch from our guide and he was making sure to entertain us with his stories and funny jokes knowing my friend was really nervous as well. He showed us the bats hanging from the ceiling, showed us the stalactites plus the noises from the bats was adding to the excitement of it all.

Extra Info: A cenote is a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenote

Super proud of Yaz in surviving this little adventure…

After 15-20mins darkness and mostly submerged in cool water… we finally reached the end of the cave which opened into a unique cenote and found paradise. I was truly happy and proud of my friend as she took the courage of braving the adventure inside the cave and took the risk and in the end seeing her contented face in having that experienced, indeed a LOVELY ADVENTURE. The guide who accompanied us made it worthwhile and worry free for my friend and our groupmates was super encouraging as well for my friend. IT WAS WORTH THE RISK.

discovering paradise…

Reaching the end and discovering paradise was incredible. We followed the way through a small canyon, saw some fishes, the emerald green pool was surrounded by vines and lush trees and you can either swim or do some cliff jumping (2meters high rock or 5meters high cliff edge). The guide/s always asked you if you want to jump or not or it’s always good to asked where you should aim for. Chances of hitting the bottom are slim as it is 3-4meters depth. I actually ended jumping from the 2meters high rock as using my last energy for the day. Tayangban Cave Pool is one of the best inland experiences I had during my visit to Siargao Island.

Our guide leading the way up to the 5meters jump…

Friendly Reminder & Suggestions:

  • Wet shoes
  • Waterproof camera/phones &
  • Extra head torch to see the lovely structures in the cave (it’s really total darkness..)
  • Life jacket (for those who can’t swim – it’s another struggle bcoz of the darkness already…)

ENDLESS SEA OF PALM TREES

Endless….

Although, we didn’t manage to go to Sugba Lagoon as it was closed due to the jellyfish season and decided not to go to Tatak Falls and the Secret Beach as we decided that we had a great and happy whole day adventure. So, this was how we spend our entire day in Siargao Island.  I would definitely treasure this day well spend with my bestfriend Yaz seeing how she showed me some courage on taking a new steps into risking a bit of having fun. Sometimes we need to get out of our shells to learn and experience great things and that what she did that day. So, CHEERS to more ADVENTURE TOGETHER.

I hope you like and enjoyed reading my own personal experienced about Siargao Island in a Day. And if you happen to have any questions or curiosity about these places please leave me a comment below. I will try my best to answer them, so until next time.

And here’s a short video of the ^Siargao Island in a Day^… Hope you enjoy it =D

Naked and Daku Islands Philippines (DonEscapades)

Naked Island offers a tranquil haven of peace and serenity, away from the normal bustle of the city.

This is the part 2 of my Island hopping tour ^DonEscapades^ in Siargao, Philippines.

As I had mentioned, on my previous blog: The Island hopping package tour included: Sohoton Bucas Grande Island + 3 Island Destinations (Guyam, Naked & Daku) which unfortunately we only managed to go 2 out of the 3 Islands because we came back almost sunset already due to the super big waves. So what I learned from my own experienced, I highly recommend doing a separate tour only for Sohoton & only for the 3 Island Destinations combine in a day instead, to enjoy the places and explore it better in a more relaxing way.  

Naked Island

Naked Island is one of the 3 Island Destinations which is one of the popular tours near in Siargao Philippines.

Yes, you read it right, NAKED ISLAND!

Friendly reminder: You don’t need to be a ^NUDIST^ to be on this island.

The nakedness of the island itself without any palm trees, just the fine white sand, the crystal cool clear water, and the scorching SUN that will really burn you because the place doesn’t have anything so that’s why it’s called the ^Naked Island^.

The Naked Island

As you can see on the photo above, there is this little one single palm tree (newly planted). I guess someone is trying to plant on this island and hoping maybe the next time he/she comes back there will be at least one Palm tree that will give some shades under the very warm sunny weather. To avoid burning too much you better not forget to put on some EXTRA SUN LOTION, or otherwise you’ll end up looking like some crispy ^LECHON^ (it is a typical grilled/stuffed roast pig with brick red colour on its skin).

Extra INFO: Lechón in Spanish is a Filipino pork dish in several regions of the world, most specifically in Spain and its former colonial possessions throughout the world. Lechón is a Spanish word referring to a roasted suckling pig. From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lechon

mE and Yaz and the other tourist on Naked Island

The island feels like you are stranded out of nowhere, because there is nothing to see of it but I guess that’s the beauty of this place. We came when it’s almost an hour or two hours before the sunset, so we didn’t really feel the sun burning us that much. We did take lots of photos, swimming here and there and walking around. I personally enjoyed watching everyone having fun while taking their photos and saw how relax their faces were, and that just made me realized how this island offers a tranquil haven of peace and serenity, away from the normal bustle of the city. I would definitely go back here and try to go on a different time just to see the different beauty of this place and experience again the serenity of this place in the future.

I’ll definitely be a happy stranded person here…
The serenity of this place is priceless….

Daku Island

The Daku Island is named so because it is literally means the biggest among the 3 Island Destinations

Daku which means Big in english is one of the 3 Island Destinations which is one of the popular tours that most tourist do when visiting in Siargao Philippines.

We came when it’s almost half or an hour before sunset. What I noticed when we arrived is the powdery white sand, how clear turquoise colour of the water and lots of coconut trees. Too bad that we didn’t came earlier and enjoy this island.

Cottages for rent…

What I learned about the place:

  • If you are planning of staying here the whole day you can rent a hut for a day or over lunch.
  • You can bring your own food and have a picnic or if you want something cooked that can be arranged as well (there are local restos that offering their fresh catch). But if you came here with a tour they probably made the arrangement beforehand so you don’t need to think too much about it.
  • There is a ^Sari-sari store^ or a small shop where you can buy basic small things u need for a day.
  • It is a very good island for swimming and sunbathing.
  • And the best part: there are few people living in this island so it is very secluded which I like the most and there where really friendly.
  • Plus for those beach volleyball enthusiasts, yes there is a space wherein you can play and have fun with the locals.

Extra INFO: A sarisari store, or neighborhood sundry store, is a convenience store found in the Philippines. The word sari-sari is Tagalog meaning “variety” or “sundry”. From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sari-sari_store

One of the groups of friends who joined our tour that day that helped our boatmen pulled our boat more nearer to the seashore.
Indeed, Filipinos are naturally friendly and helpful.
The tranquility of the island helps me relax, too bad it was only a glimpse.
mE & bRu Yaz ending this Island hopping with big smiles on our faces

I would definitely be back here for a longer stay next time and to experience a longer lovely tranquility of this place better. Although, we didn’t manage to visit the Guyam Island (which is one of the 3 Island Destinations) that time but there is always a NEXT TIME. What matters most was that we had INDEED A LOVELY TIME the entire day that me and my best friend would definitely CHERISH for the rest of our lives. I would highly recommend these 3 Island Destinations to beach lovers. A double thumbs up indeed.

I hope you like and enjoyed reading my own personal experienced about Naked and Daku Islands. And if you happen to have any questions or curiosity about these places please leave me a comment below. I will try my best to answer them, so until next time.

Sohoton Bucas Grande Island Philippines (DonEscapades)

Sohoton Bucas Grande Island is part of the Sohoton National Park that belongs to the municipality of Socorro,
one of the six municipalities of Siargao Islands group.

Our day started super early, we were fetched at our accommodation at 6:30am and then (TheTour) brought us to General Luna (Siargao) where our meeting point will be with our boatmen ^The Bangkeros^ who brought us to Sohoton and together with some other group of friends who will be joining us for the tour that day. There were only me and my best friend Yaz who went for this trip so we opted to join a tour so we can be with some people and as they said the more the merrier. What I liked about this tour or the organizer of the tour is that they made sure if we had eaten our breakfast already and given us a good time to eat or buy some snacks in case we needed it. But for us, we had a super simple early breakfast at our accommodation so we managed to do some photo sessions before embarking for our journey that day.

Sunrise at General Luna, Siargao Philippines

Estimation of the boat travel from General Luna to Sohoton should only be around 2-2.5hrs (weather permitting). But it took us around 2.5-3hrs travel time because of the big waves but it was indeed worth it. The sceneries of the journey didn’t disappoint us.

Boat travel journey going to Sohoton Bucas Grande Island, Philippines

WARNING:  In case you will really choose this tour, this might not be good for people who easily get seasick or nervous because it’s really big waves as we speak and the journey is really long back and forth. But for those who has a lot of patience and really wants adventure this tour is for you.

Visitor Centre of Sohoton Bucas Grande Island Philippines

Upon entering the vicinity or the Visitor Centre, we had a quick briefing with the people in charge of the area (LGU – Local Government Unit), things of what to do and not to do etc. and lastly, we need to signed some waivers as well.

FRIENDLY REMINDER: They are strictly implementing (ZERO) plastic waste on this area so please do follow the rules on waste disposal.

^The Bangkeros^ or ^The Boatmen^ at Sohoton Bucas Grande Island Philippines

1st part: Tojoman Lagoon (Jellyfish Sanctuary)

I am truly amazed seeing in real life how emerald crystal clear water it is at the Jellyfish Sanctuary. And I get to experienced myself holding, touching and swimming along with these harmless jellyfish in the 20-feet deep Tojoman Lagoon. This small ^Bangka^ / boat is the only means of transport to visit this area so that the jellyfish thriving here will not be disturbed by the noise of the engine of the big boat and at the same time they will not be harmed with the motor boat’s propeller. I felt like a child again swimming with them.

Swimming with the harmless Jellyfish at Tojoman Lagoon Philippines

BACKSTORY: I was lucky that ^Kuya Bangkero^ / Boatman was super chatty and taught me so much about the place during our ^Bangka^ / small boat ride trip to Jellyfish Sanctuary. How most of their livelihood really depended on tourism due to farming in those islands / mountains areas has certain crops / plants that only can be planted and survive due to the quality or kind of soil they have on those areas. So, bad weather on those areas means no income for them. But as our conversations go deeper, I felt that even how life is tough sometimes for him and his family, they are still happily trying to meet ends with what they have and always looking for other ways to find an extra income for the family, and that’s what you call the ^Filipino Spirit^. 

Friendly reminder: If you happened to get a nice ^Kuya Bangkero^ do give them some tips willingly from your heart (it’s not a mandatory to do so…) and BTW, they are really good in taking photos.

Chatting happily with ^Kuya Bangkero^

2nd part: Sohoton National Park (Little Underground River), Hagukan Cave ^Luminescent Cave^ and Magkukuob Cave

We needed to change to a bigger motor boat as we will be going around the Sohoton National Park. We got some helmets as we needed to pass by some little underground river to go to the other side of the area. The guide narrated some history about the place and answered some of our curiosities. The journey wasn’t that long maybe around 10-15mins only and then we came to Hagukan Cave.

Passing through this Little Underground River
View going to Hagukan Cave
The Beautiful View

Hagukan Cave ^Luminescent Cave^

I wasn’t expecting grand going to this cave because I know for sure it will be just the basic thing you can see inside a cave (The Darkness, all these stalactites and stalagmites, rock formation and etc.). I just said OK to just go with the flow and hoping my adrenaline junkie side (who by the way was ^sleeping forever^) is still somewhere inside me, I guess?! I was just curious when our guide really pushes and recommends everyone to go to this cave because it will be worth our time. Indeed, he didn’t disappoint us. We needed to swim under to go inside the cave, the guide will even help you submerged properly so even if you aren’t a good swimmer, all you need to do is wear your life jacket on and hold your breath for about 8seconds+ and viola you are inside the cave already (don’t worry another guide will receive you on the other side so you’ll for sure never go wrong). The interior of the cave was very unique because the light coming from the underwater opening of the cave illuminated the chamber in a unique reflection that feels so magical, like you are in the movie ^Avatar^. I was really amazed how the water glow electric blue as we continued splashing it like a bunch of fascinated kids because of the glow. The guide said that the waters colour glow sometimes electric green.  Too bad I had no waterproof camera or video with me, but the picture in my mind still amazes me until now.

Me with my happy face after I swam inside this magical luminescent cave.

Magkukuob Cave

This is indeed, the real cave adventure (The Darkness, all these Stalactites and Stalagmites, Rock Formation and etc.). In order for us to go inside this cave: we needed to swim into the cave, then climbed up into the cave to enjoy what everything needed to be seen inside a cave plus The Bats over the ceiling and the HIGHLIGHT: 5-meter cliff jumping back into the lagoon where we all started as it is the only way out. It is indeed, the best way to end this adventure.

Super happy face after visiting Magkukuob Cave

BACKSTORY: One of our group mates had a fear of height and that took him more than 5mins to jump off the cliff. But what made me realize is that even if we just met and made friends with them on that trip, a simple gesture of encouragement made him Believe that he can do it and in fact he putted some Trust on our guide who had jumped along with him. And YES, I was really truly proud of him because he managed to face his fear and conquer the world.

PS: Sorry for my happy face (I was just super happy at this moment because of what I had seen inside this beautiful Magkukuob Cave. And, I came to know before I jumped that my boat mate had a fear of heights tsk tsk tsk… but after a reassuring talk with him that everything will be alright because The Guide and Us will be there for him, so I eventually got to see his smiling face…

Before jumping the 5-meter cliff.
Me after the successful 5-meter cliff jump… I still got that adrenaline junkie nerd side of me…

And the last part and I guess the best part when you are hungry THE LUNCH. We exerted all our energy to this adventure so we needed to refuel our strength before going back to General Luna, Siargao.

Lovely lunch with our boat mates at Sohoton Bucas Grande Island Philippines

As we travelled back going to the next 3 Islands which is part of the tour package (that will be discuss on my next Blog/Vlog), I realized it was worth the long travel journey coming to this place. I indeed had a lovely wonderful experience that will be cherished for the rest of my life that was well spend with one of my best friend in life. I would highly recommend this place to adventure seekers or those outdoor enthusiasts. A double thumbs up indeed.

Friendly Extra Info:

  • We got a TOUR via GOSIARGAO (booked via their Instagram and we’re really happy about it) for this Island hopping that included Sohoton Bucas Grande Island + 3 Islands (Guyam, Daku & Naked) which unfortunately we only managed to go 2 out of the 3 Islands because we came back almost sunset already, which is too bad. So from my own experienced, I highly recommend doing a separate tour only for Sohoton & only for the 3 Islands combine in a day instead to enjoy better the places.  

Note: There are OTHER OPTIONS for this kind of tour that we saw when we came back that you can do only for Sohoton for the entire day included some other more islands in the same area. Indeed, I need to go back here next time and try the other options.

  • Before BOOKING some of any tours in some pages or websites, you can actually go to the port in General Luna to check and compare prices, because it is cheaper to book directly through them but just make sure to check what’s included in their tour package.
  • OTHER WAY: I read somewhere that the best way to go to this place is via Surigao City (which is very more accessible and more nearer) than taking it from General Luna, Siargao that took us 2.5-3hrs or a total of more or less 6-7hrs of travel time, what?
  • Always try to COMMUNICATE with the locals because it’s a good and best way to know which place/s to go to and the locals recommendations are always the best.
  • READ and ASK a lot about the place for some infos and tips from other traveller who already came to the place, because their experiences are always the best.

I hope you like and enjoyed reading my own personal experienced about Sohoton. And if you happen to have any questions or curiosities about this place please leave me a comment below. I will try my best to answer them, so until next time.
