Siargao Island Hidden Tourist Attractions:

In the 1980s, surf tourism started a steady buzz in Siargao. But in recent years, more people, including a high amount of international travelers, frequent Siargao even when there are no waves. Siargao has many beautiful beaches and pristine coves and those who tread further than the bustling towns of General Luna and Catangan will discover this destination's hidden attractions.

Sohoton Cove Siargao Island Philippines

1. Sohoton Cove is a 60-hectare cove in Bucas Grande Island and is about a one­ hour boat ride from the port in Dapa. It's the idyllic definition of paradise: towering limestone hills covered in tropical plants and hardwood trees like the magcono, aptly called ironwood, framing a shoreline of white sand and tiny shells.

Hagukan Cave

2. Hagukan Cave produces an echoing sound similar to a human snore-haguk, in the local tongue-when the waves lap against its walls. To enter the cave, one must swim through a narrow passageway leading to water with a luminescent sapphire glow. Nearby, another cave called the Magkukuob Cave is covered in shimmering stalactites and stalagmites. To exit the cave, one has to climb up a cliff and jump off!

3. Balitas Cave and the Crystal Cave offer challenging paths for more advanced spelunking. But arriving in the belly of these caves is a worthy reward: crystal formations and cool, clear water. Once inside, the cawing of swiftlets, locally known as balinsasayaw birds, reverberate.


Guyam Island Siargao Philippines

4. Guyam Island is the smallest of the three islands and you can walk around its small patch of sand in less than 10 m inutes. 

Daku Island Philippines Aerial Shot

5. Daku Island is a bigger island where you can spend most of your day time relaxing . A lunch of seafood and tropical fruits is served on the back of a surfboard or on top of a banana leaf.

6. Naked Island is a fun but peculiar island because it has nothing but white sand on it. No vegetation or structures can be found.
