It breaks over a deeper reef so it’s a great introduction to reef surfing and is situated in front of Dako Beach.Can handle some decent size but also a good learner spot and so can get a bit crowded.One warning with flying into and out of Siargao – because the airport still hasn’t been fully upgraded planes are unable to land in bad weather or visibility, so flights can often be cancelled.In fact my flight out of Siargao was cancelled and I couldn’t get off the island for 4 days (not that I was complaining much!If you want to be surrounded by fellow travellers, get stuck into some surf lessons and have everything in one nice easy package where you have a bar, restaurant and people that can organise your day trips then this is the place to head.There’s a great vibe going on here and daily surf excursions for you to tag along with.
Mainly a right hander, but with a shorter, occasional left it’s best to hit up during mid-high tide and the perfect spot to practice. It’s a very powerful wave breaking over a shallow reef.) and in wet/monsoon season () I did hear stories about people being stranded there for 2 weeks or more!So if you’re flying back to Cebu and then grabbing an important or international flight I suggest leaving a couple days leeway and keeping an eye on the weather just in case!The main draw of Siargao for most people is the surf – the island is famed for the numerous world class waves that surround both Siargao and the neighbouring islands.
If you want reeling, hollow reef breaks or simply want to experience the vibe and get involved in a beginner surf camp Siargao is the Philippines surfing hotspot!
Although a lot of the waves are the perfect playground for intermediate – advanced surfers there’s also some option for those looking to learn to surf too.
