Overview

The Philippines, a land of smiles, invites you to discover with over 7500 islands. The still largely undiscovered holiday destination spoils its visitors with year-round mild climate, as well as a variety of pristine beaches, high mountains, rainforests, rice terraces and the hospitality of the locals.
Siargao is located in the north-east of Mindanao, one of the two largest islands in the Philippines. The tropical island with its world-class waves now attracts visitors from all over the world. However, Siargao retains its charm and invites you to discover and experience thanks to the friendly locals and unspoilt nature.

In addition to surfing, there are many other activities, such as stand up paddling, kite surfing, kayaking, diving, freediving, snorkeling, fishing, yoga and golfing. There is also no shortage of opportunities for discovery and excursions: Island hopping, various lagoons, Sohoton Caves, rock pools, riding on water buffaloes, cycling tours, hiking and much more.

Siargao offers a wide range of entertainment options and restaurants. Most resorts are located between General Luna and Catangnan (home to the world-famous “Cloud 9” wave) and together have a wide range of local and international cuisine, as well as various events such as: Acoustic Nights, Poker Nights, Art Nights, Movie Nights etc. The restaurants are also becoming more diverse, from the local BBQ stand to Pizzaria to more fine cuisine.

Surf

Whether beginner, advanced or pro, the numerous waves offer something for every surf level! In addition to the world-famous wave “Cloud 9” there are many other surf spots with reefbreaks, which invite you to surf. Our guiding/coaching team consists of experienced surfers (all locals) who are looking forward to helping you with your first attempts or in improving your surfing technique and style. By boat or by Habl Habl (local motorbike taxi) they will take you to the spots with the best waves and conditions. For advanced surfers, the best conditions are in the high season from October to January. In autumn there are also national surf contests, so the accommodations are very well booked at this time. Early booking is definitely recommended for this travel time.

Season
It can be surfed all year round, but the variety and size of the waves changes in the high and low season. During the high season (end of August to early January) the swells are usually more constant and larger, so that usually all surf spots are surfed. For the rest of the year you can still surf daily, but then the selection is limited to about 3-4 surf spots.
