Known for it's surfing, Siargao island in the Philippines is a must stop for the adventurous and spiritual traveler.
We came for the surf, we found so much more. Siargao is one of the over 7000 islands that make up the Philippines. Home to the famous Cloud Nine surf break, this island has been drawing tourists for years to experience the world class surfing, cheap eco conscious accommodation, fresh healthy food and multitude of yoga shalas. While it's hard not to spend your entire day surfing with a variety of breaks for all levels just a short and cheap boat ride from shore, renting a scooter or hiring a car for the day, there is so much to explore on this jungle island. White sand beaches, rock pools, endless coconuts, and farmers markets can entertain you in the day time. At night freshly caught seafood is thrown over a grill and enjoyed while sipping cheap local beer, before a visit to the local movie theatre, karaoke bar, jungle disco or simply back to your hammock to read before bed. Each restaurant and bar has it's own story and style to experience just like each surf break has it's own vibe and style to be enjoyed.
