10 Best Places to Stay in Siargao

For your next surf getaway!

(SPOT.ph) Summer is here once again, and people are flocking to some of the Philippines’ most beautiful beach destinations—don’t worry, we have lots. If you haven’t planned your own beach vacation yet, you should consider Siargao, which is a teardrop-shaped island just off the coast of Surigao del Norte in Mindanao. Known as the Surfing Capital of the Philippines, it boasts a laid-back vibe that you can only find in a true-blue surf town—surfers waking up before dawn to catch the first wave of the day, restaurant owners closing their stores midday to surf as soon as a big swell comes to their shores, and guests turning in early at night, like the rest of the island. The next day is another adventure as tourists check out nearby lagoons and coves, pristine islets, rock formations, and, of course, more surf spots.

Whatever your itinerary, the island has a number of resorts to suit your needs. Here are the highly recommended ones worth checking out:
