Fun Family Activities in Siargao

The first time I visited Siargao was for a mini reunion with my high school friends in October of last year. I fell in love with the place (I blogged about it here) and wanted to bring my family back one day- I didn't think that day would come to soon. For our annual family trip in December, we booked a trip to the most beautiful island in the Philippines!

It was different seeing Siargao during its off-peak season. When I went in October, it was really crowded with locals and tourists. December is their rainy season. Their rains are really strong- I wouldn't suggest you to go during this time. It would better to plan your trip between August to November. The weather is beautiful then and perfect for surfing.

Since I was with my family, we spent most of our time touring around the best spots in Siargao. Siargao is best known for their surfing and parties- both of which my family wasn't interested in. My family likes to keep busy- especially my mom. She made sure that our five day stay was filled with activities. She booked us a tour for everyday via Explore Siargao Island Tours.

Our first tour was Cloud Nine- it was named "Cloud Nine" because surfers feel like they are on top of the world whenever they surf the waves. Most of the resorts are located in General Luna which is the main strip of bars, restaurants and hotels. Cloud Nine is just a 30-minute drive from there.

Our second tour was Sohoton (Bucas Grande) It was an hour car ride plus a two hour boat ride to reach the Sohoton Caves. It isn't the most comfortable ride. If you easily get seasick, you might want to skip this tour. But it one of those things you would want to see at least once in your life. 

Our third tour was Sugba Lagoon. I already did this tour during my first trip to Siargao but it is still worth doing over and over again.

Can you jump off? I hate heights. I couldn't move while taking this photo!

Our fourth and final tour was Island Hopping (Daku, Guyam and Naked Island). Spend the day visiting three of the most gorgeous beaches. All the islands are untouched. There are no resorts or restaurants. You will only find a few huts that you can rent for the day.

Spot the wild animal in the photo. Lol.

Naked Island

Found this puppy in Daku Island and we instantly became best friends

My dad loves to photobomb my photos. Whenever I scroll through my camera, I find at least a couple of photos just like this.
