Our trip to the province of Surigao Del Norte had so much surprise. One is knowing about the island of Siargao as a destination not only for surfing but a place with marvellous islands and beaches. Then, learning about another island in the province named as Bucas Grande that has scenic view of beautiful lagoons handed us another astonishment. What more surprising about this island is it offers a unique adventure that can’t be experience anywhere else in the country, a close encounter with stingless jellyfish.

When we hear about the island of Siargao, we immediately think about surfing. It’s obvious because the island is named as the surfing capital of the country. But this teardrop shaped island is more than just a surfing site. The island is nurtured with marvellous beaches, clear blue waters, nearby islands ideal for island hopping and some other tourist attractions.
Knowing these things got me interested to visit the island few months back. Together with my friend, we traveled to the northeastern part of Mindanao and explored the finest beaches of Siargao and its nearby islands.

It was midsummer when my former officemate and I went for a travel in Mindanao. Our initial plan was to spend our vacation in the island of Siargao, but because of some time constraints and conflicts with transportation schedules, we then needed to have some stopovers in some cities before and after visiting our awaited destination.
There were no direct flights going to Siargao from Manila; hence, we were left with no choice but to fly through Butuan. It’s a long travel to get to Siargao from Butuan. Normally, it takes 6 hours of travel by land and sea combined. If ferries to the island from the city were frequent then there would be no problem in getting to Siargao anytime, but that wasn’t the case.
