#StylespressoTravels to Siargao Island

A simple blog post won’t do justice to describe this island and how I fell in love with every single bit of it.

I have been dying to go to Siargao thinking that going to the world-class surfing spot in the Philippines will help me improve my surfing. It did. The island has got too many surf spots to choose from. Nevermind if you are beginner or an experienced surfer, you got plenty of choices to choose from.

Surfing aside, the island is stunning! Beyond words beautiful. White sand, clear waters, amazing weather and the most genuine people. Oops, I forgot to mention the pan de coco! It’s to die-for, must-have especially after a good surf session.

Siargao is not only for surfers. There’s plenty of things you can do if you are not out there chasing waves. Go see the Tres Marias, hop on Naked Island, Guyam Island and Daku Island. During low tide, grab a motorbike and road trip to Magpupungko tidal pools. But if you are feeling lazy, you can just feast on the fresh fruits in the market, find a spot by the beach (because really,there’s almost nobody beach-bumming anywhere and you can have the beach all to yourself!)

Another side trip worth doing is taking a boat tour to Bucas Grande. It takes an hour and a half to go there from Siargao but boy, the place is definitely worth-it. While I was there, I’ve realized that I don’t want to live anywhere else than the Philippines. Because duh, it’s just too stunning to put to words!

And last but definitely not the least, what made the trip the most epic ever are the people I met at Paglaom Hostel. A bunch of beautiful souls whom I wish I could keep in the island with me forever! You guys are electric!
