Journey To Siargao Island Philippines

Siargao Island is known as the Surfing Capital of the Philippines, but you don't need to be a surfer to enjoy the beautiful scenery and natural attractions on the island. So where is this hidden gem, you ask? Good question. Siargao is located 800 kilometers southeast of Philippines' capital Manila. It belongs to the province of Surigao del Norte, situated at the northeastern tip of Mindanao. Perfect white beaches, enchanting lagoons, caves, sand bars, coral reefs, bizarre rock formations, exotic wildlife, endless rice fields, waterfalls, a large mangrove forest reserve. and so much more. Siargao is not only about riding waves and the perfect swell. And I'm not a surfer.
