Why I fell in love with this beautiful Island called Siargao!
A mind-blowing view from paradise… they called it Philippine Deep!

Siargao Island is composed of 48 islands and islets-politically divided into nine municipalities: Burgos, Dapa, Del Carmen, Gen. luna, Pilar, San Benito, San Isidro, Santa Monica, and Socorro.

Siargao Island contains the largest mangrove forest reserves in Mindanao, at Del Carmen. Long stretches of wetlands indicate a potential for commercial seaweed propagation. Siargao Island is greatly influenced by the winds and currents coming uninterrupted from the Pacific Ocean, intensified by the Mindanao current running westward through the Siargao Strait.

The best known surfing wave on Siargao with a worldwide reputation for thick, hollow tubes is "Cloud 9". This right-breaking reef wave is the site of the annual Siargao Cup, a domestic and international surfing competition sponsored by the provincial government of Surigao del Norte. The tide of Siargao is diurnal with tidal curves typically present especially on the east coast of the island. It is the Surfing Capital of the Philippines.

Siargao Island is a special place for me because it’s my father’s hometown! I visited the place last May and I am so excited to visit the paradise again. The white sand beaches, the amazing rock formations, the delicious food, the amazing people, the beautiful sunrise and sunset and the great memories left when i was a kid! Yes! I lived there for quite awhile. 

We have our own house there so no need for me to rent a cottage or hotel to stay in. I noticed that the place is somewhat different now. I mean, it change a lot...but for the better. Many cottages now and foreigners/tourists unlike back then no one ever dare to visit the place because it's quite far from the civilization! The brgy. captain there is a great friend of my father (they share the same party in the politics), she changed the dull island into a world-class destination. I admit that it's too far to go there but i can assure you that it's a great place if you're looking for paradise! 

So here's more captures during my travel in Siargao!
