Good to know about Siargao Island
The island of Siargao is situated 800km southeast of Manila in the province of Surigao del Norte. Backpackers visit this small island because of its great waves which are probably the best on the Philippines. Surfers from all over the world come here to surge some waves. Several international surfing cups have already been held at this island.

Cloud 9, where you can find the best waves or also General Luna are favoured places to go to on this island. Also for people who do not surf this small island has lots to offer: amazing beaches, great scenery and friendly people - the perfect place to relax.

Do not underestimate the size of the island, especially if you are on the motorbike: most of the roads are in a pretty bad condition and sometimes you can only drive slowly. Road lightning is also not good and therefore driving at night can be pretty dangerous.
