13 Unforgettable Beach Destinations in Southeast Asia-Trip Advise

Located on the Philippines’ eastern flank facing the Pacific Ocean, Siargao Island benefits from consistent waves that make its beaches one of the region’s most-visited surf stops. The Cloud Nine surf spot challenges even the most experienced surfers, who contend with its powerful waves and dangerous reef bottom.

Not that surfing is the only thing you can do around the island – take a “habal-habal” or hired van to scenic spots like the Magpupungko rock pool, or ride a “pump-boat” to islands off Siargao, among them Daku (“Large”), Guyam and Naked Islands, which offer more swimming- and family-friendly beaches compared to Siargao proper’s rocky, wave-pummeled ones.


Airlines connect Siargao to Manila and Cebu; travelers looking for a challenge might try taking the ferry from Surigao City.
