SIARGAO is indeed a top destination in the Philippines. But how is it feel to be here and why is this tropical island a must-visit? See what Richmond Saguiafin has for us!



Siargao is a tear-drop shaped island in the Philippine Sea situated 800 kilometers southeast of Manila in the province of Surigao del Norte. It has a land area of approximately 437 square kilometres.

Here's what Richmond experienced in visiting Siargao:

Arrived at Siargao Domestic airport from a 1 hour and 20 minutes journey (Manila to Siargao) Mainit dito. So ipaligo nyo na ang sunblock sa Manila airport palang or lunukin nyo ang sun block much better.

Don't be confused. Siargao is located in Surigao so its one of Surigao Del Norte's islands. Wag din parang below sea level ang i.q. ha. Wag puros gym at pagmamake up ang alam.

Skyjet can only fit 70 people on board and only fly to Batanes, Caticlan, Busuanga and Siargao. It was a rough landing earlier and it was scary as hell as the plane just bounced during landing (videos later) Akala ko hindi ko na masisilayan ang Siargao at na sight ko na si San Pedro ng bery bery light. Maiksi lang ang runway mga tipong from sala nyo to banyo nyo sa bahay. No joke!


The fare is at 12k for round trip,pricey isnt it? (220 USD) Dinaig pa Hongkong, Cambodia at Vietnam teh. Hindi ko alam kung may mga diamonds ba sa lugar na to or minahan ng mga brilyante for a fare price like that. But I guess this is way cheaper compare sa ibang airline na masyadong gahaman.

Funny thing is. The glass window behind me is magically tinted. Ive realized that thats a departure waiting area. Nakakahiya lang that they see us taking pictures, striking a pose full force (walang awat). Yung ibang kasamahan namin sa airplane humiga pa sa semento just to get a good shot. People nowadays tologo.

So alam na, iwasan ang spot na to paglapag ng eroplano kung gusto nyong manatili ang karangalan nyo bilang tao.

Ate Irene is one the nicest person I know. She is very accommodating and deserve to be promoted as hotel supervisor. All of the staffs in this resort are extremely nice. Iniwan ko muna sa Manila ang pag uugali kong dugyot at bigla akong nahiya.

We are staying at Romantic Villas Resort (google it) Ate Irene always gives me extended food (im talking about breakfast because its free) Kapag ubos ko na ang food ko she will automatically gives me another set of meal, for free to mga beshiess waley bayad, libre, limos, give away! Naamoy nya ata na patay gutom ako at hindi ko nginunguya ang pagkain.

Our bed for 4 days. Lakas maka mag syota ng kamang to. I asked my friend to sleep sa lapag kasi malakas ako humilik which she agreed. Mahirap ng mahipuan ng hindi mo type. #balakadyan

This is a loft type and can fit 6 people. This is a villa and not a room. There is also a small patio outside where you can have a drink or makipag plastikan with your friends (see videos later) The loft area can fit 3 people as there are 3 beds up there.


This villa is ideal for barkada getaway. The price is at 6-8k per night and still depends on the season, aircon dito at may pa dalawang electric fan din sila mem! choosy pa? Majority are foreigners staying here. Afam goals dito mga teh, puros afam! so alam nyo na ha? Itodo nyo na ang pag awra.

Kung gusto nyo makatipid may mga hostel naman sa area, ayun lang banig level at winnie the pooh bed sheet ang hihigaan nyo so gow na kung nagtitipid.

A view of our hotel resort from reception area. The sea may look closer on this shot but because it is low tide it is really far from the shore. Mga benteng tumbling pa at walong limbo rack to reach the sea part mga mem!

The resort has a bar so kahit dito na kayo gumimik during night time. Dito na kayo mag walwal, kausapin nyo ang mga niyog dito baka sakaling mabuhay.

You can also go to Bravo and Kermit kung gusto nyo makipag sosyalan pa at kumerengkeng. 5minute walk lang from our hotel resort. The good thing about Siargao island is you can rent a motorcycle for 500 pesos the entire day. Bahala ka sa buhay mo kung saan mo gusto pumunta. Its all yours, kahit paliparin mo ang motor without a helmet keri! the only disadvantage is waley signal sa ibang part at talaga namang ligaw ang aabutin mo dahil hndi ma access si pareng waze at mareng google maps. So mag isip isip ka muna bago mag rent ng motorcycle ha?

Kung gusto mo namang lumandi i download ang tinder mga paps and mamshies at sandamukal ang foreigners dito at hindi kayo mazezero. Gow!

Our first selfie at Siargao. Ive waited for my friend for an hour para lang sa make up nya. Sasali ata sa Bb. Pilipinas.

This is our first island hopping going to Daku Island. There are packages in the hotel if you want to avail. Nontheless, we chose to have it DIY-ed (or do-it-yourself) that costs us roughly around 2k the whole day for the boat alone.

Pwede rin kayo lumangoy na lang per island kung nagtitipid kayo.

Paalala: medyo malakas ang alon sa ibang part, kaya magbaon ng lakas ng loob at tibay ng resistensya. Wag ng mag make up pag nagiisland hopping dahil iba ang init dito at tunaw agad ang foundation at concealer nyo. Wag ng ipilit mag retouch at wala ding saysay.

At Daku Island (daku means malaki in bisaya, daks sa mga libogerot libogera)

I guess there are hundreds of coconut trees in this island. So why not make the most of taking a picture while Im here daba? Minsan lang ako makakita ng puno ng nyog. Be careful of taking a pictures here as some coconut will just suddenly fall without you knowing.

Ive heard a woman was declared dead on arrival in a hospital because there were 3 coconuts that fell on her head while doing her selfie. Too bad. RIP. My deep condolences. Heart breaking!

My friend asked me to do this pose which I did and it scares the hell out of me. Mukang shokoy at its finest. Minsan talaga may sapi ako when travelling.

Guys bawal ang maingay sa mga resort dito. Ang mga foreigners dito nagbubulungan kapag nag uusap. Mandatory na dapat ang buka ng bibig mo dito is one inch lang. Mahihiya kang huminga dito sa Siargao sa sobrang tahimik. Library lang talaga ang peg dito, so this place is not recommended sa mga hayok tumawa at parang lumunok ng megaphone kung magkwentuhan.

Kung kinakailangang mag hand gestures kapag nag uusap gawin nyo kung ayaw nyo ng gulo.

Ngiting patay gutom it is!

Ang sarap ng mga food sa resort nato. Parang may mga gayuma silang hinalo. Talagang babalik ka every 2 hours na para kang patay gutom. Parang may kulam mamsh. 

Lakas lang din maka balakang ng mga serving nila- yung good for sharing nila good for isang buong barkada. Kawawa talaga ang mga inidoro sa resort na to.

Tip: Ang pag nguya ng pagkain dito kailangan thirty times bago lunukin. Wag nyo kami gayahin na lunok agad dahil ang lakas maka yagit fountain!

'Kunwari masaya tayo' pose

This is at Guyam Island. Napaka ganda dito mga momshies at papshies. Ihanda nyo ang mga pamatay pose at outfit nyo at talaga namang iiyak sa inggit ang mga insecure nyong kaibigan. Pang 5 years profile pic or cover photo ang shot dito mga mem!

The part where we were standing is mababaw lang yan pero beshies wag masyadong malikot at maharot dahil malalim na ang susunod na steps so kalma lang sa pagpopose, siguraduhin mong hindi mo ikakamatay ang selfie at baka lamunin ka ng dagat.

Hindi na kailangan ng filter dito sa Sugba lagoon. Naturalan ang kulay ng tubig dyan- hindi tulad sa iba na pinipilit igreen ang tubig sa photo- muntanga lang talaga parang adik. Wag ganun. Mahihiya ang snapseed, cymera at kung ano anong photo editor nyo dito..

Hindi nyo na rin kailangan i-google ang icacaption nyo dito dahil very self explanatory na! Wag na kayong mag google google pa ng caption ang lakas maka jologs ng mga ganyan!

Again- bawal ang masyadong maingay sa isla ng Siargao at baka engkantuhin kayo dito. Ang pag tawa dito kailangan controlled. Hindi pwede ang yagit fountain attitude sa islang to. So sana umayos tayo.

Go Pro hero 4 blurred shot. Pang asar ang go pro minsan ang labo ng kuha o shunga lang ung may hawak ng go pro. On a serious note this place is just so wonderful.

If youre travelling alone naku besh mahihirapan ka dahil 1600 ang boat rent going here from port area. Ang nangyari pa samen since we were just two, hindi pwedeng makisabay sa mga hindi mo kilala. No choice kami paps and mamsh dahil yung 1600 rent pinaghatian na lang naming dalawa. Gusto kong magwala during this time lol. May pagka sakim ang mga tao sa port akala ata alien kami at bawal makisabay.


So please guys bago kayo pumunta sa port make sure na anim na kayo para hndi magastos. Humanap na kayo ng kasabayan sa tinder, scout, grinder, lahat na ng dating app i download nyo para makatipid. Humablot na kayo ng mga afam sa dadanan nyo kung kinakailangan. Dalee!

Ito na nga ang mahiwagang Sugba Lagoon, Ihanda nyo na ang mga outfit nyo at talagang mamatay sa inggit ang mga barkada nyong wala ng ibang ginawa kundi saluhin ang negativity sa buhay. Isagad nyo na ang pang instagram nyo dito. No filter needed na mamsh sa view, yung muka mo na lang iedit mo ng slight.

There are people waiting for me as I striked this pose. Yung nauna sakeng babae naka 200 shots ata sa spot na to. Sarap lang talagang bigwasan at iupper cut ni ate wantusawa. Sya ang salarin kung bakit humaba ang pila dito! Nakaka galet!

This is a 25 feet dive so alam na? wag shunga sa pagtalon ha? unahin ang paa at wag leg landing para iwas pasa. Good luck mga beshies! Laban lang!!

Mapungpuco Rocks (hndi ko alam kung tama ang spelling) basta ang alam ko masakit na ang pwet ko sa dalawang oras at kalahating habal habal masilayan lang tong lugar na to. All worth it mga mamshies at papshies wag lang kayo masyadong mag expect ng mga Kayangan lake Coron level, mahirap ma disappoint! 😂

Overall, Siargao island is a must visit! Luluha sa inggit ang mga stalker nyo sa fb at mga inggitero nyong kamag anak kapag nakitang narito kayo. Enjoy kayo guys and I hope somehow na tour ko na rin kayo dito kahit sa mga pictures man lang 😍

P.S- umihi lang talaga ako sa spot na ito. Masyadong malayo ang 1km para sa restroom dito. Oh wag kayong magmalinis. Gawain nyo din yan. Saksi ang mga dagat at pool na inihian nyo. Wag ako.
