My World#16 Siargao, Surigao, Philippines

Local surfers checking out the waves.

Beginners and their surfer-teachers waiting for the waves.


There's another wave coming!!

Siargao is considered the surfing capital of the Philippines. Famous for its Cloud 9 waves, it has been a popular destination for surfers from all over the world for years now. What I really like about Siargao is that it has retained its island-beach laid-back atmosphere inspite of the influx of foreigner-tourists.

Recently, Siargao is also emerging as a popular gamefishing destination. Siargao also has a lot of activities to offer aside from surfing and gamefishing. Siargao boasts of one of the largest mangrove forest in Philippines. Waterfalls, lagoon, secluded beach coves, and island hopping are just some of the activities that can be done in Siargao. And oh by the way, did I mention that they have delicious seafood straight from the seas?
See the other worlds here.This is my entry for:

Oh, what a coincidence that we've both posted Siargao today. Was this in Gen. Luna. I always was in Cloud 9.

HI Maritas - are you a surfer? It looks as though you get some big waves there. Lovely action shots.

Great photos. It looks like a beautiful place.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Oh, I love those big waves.

@Todday's Blah: That's so cool, we both featured Siargao.

@Barb: I'm not a surfer but I want to try that someday. Did try riding a surfboard and I was so giddy, I flipped over. LOL!

This must be a paradise for holiday seekers! Thanks for showing these wonderful photos! Have a great day!

Love the first photo the most. I hope it stays a surfers place rather than gamefishing.

With waters like that it sure is a destination. Like a paradise found.

You totally sold it to me. You should really take up tourist brochure making. A bonus is when you can even take your own photos. Must be a true paradise.

Looks like summer all year round. A beautiful place and the surfing looks great too. Thanks for visiting.
