Siargao Island Day 4/4

After 3 days of being in the beach, I was now much tanner than I wanted to be. But that’s okay. It’s a remembrance of my fun-filled days in Siargao Island. It was sad to leave the fine white sand, the crystal waters, and the resort’s scrumptious seafood fiesta. But I had to. 😦

With a heavy heart, I packed my bags and left for the airport. The van that was supposed to take us there got delayed because of car trouble so we didn’t have time to stop for souvenirs. On top of that, I was most disappointed when we arrived at Sayak Airport because they only had a few coffee mugs, key chains, and t-shirts with designs that didn’t quite amuse me and were too expensive. I left the small stall empty-handed.

After a few minutes, we boarded the propeller plane that would take us back to Cebu. We taxied around the short runway, then up up up until I got a perfect view of the islands below.

Here are the highlights of our 4D/3N Siargao trip:

Travel Tips:

  1. Some of the islands have entrance fees so make sure to bring money. On our stay there, we didn’t have to pay because no one was there to ask for the payments. We were lucky. 😛
  2. Place your valuable items inside a waterproof bag. Siargao weather is unpredictable, a sudden rain shower is normal.
  3. Always make sure you have enough battery and memory for your camera so you can take a picture of all the amazing stuff.
  4. Bring a waterproof camera so you can take pictures of the no-sting jellyfishes.
  5. For surfers, the best place to visit is between July and November. Check out the Philippine Tourism website for more details: http://tourism-philippines.com/siargao-island/
  6. And last but not least, don’t forget to enjoy! 😀
