Siargao is famous as a surfing site in the south of the Philippine archipelago. It is an island facing the Pacific Ocean. Siargao is located in Surigao del Norte.
Siargao flights are one of the most expensive prices for tickets. There are limited direct flights here.
Our Flight was from Cebu City and a connecting flight going to Siargao. I opted to do this since a friend of mine and her family and an officemate would be coming from the USA and it’s their first time going to an island.
The flight to Cebu was a little bit delayed and we reached Mactan International Airport, they were calling the passengers going to Siargao already so our group hurriedly went to the boarding station after we bought Zubochon.
We arrived at Sayak Airport, but due to some confusion, our transportation service arrived late. From the airport, it was a 1-hour ride going to our resort.
Sandy Feet Siargao
The resort is called Sandy Feet Siargao. It is a 4-star hotel/resort along Malinao Road from General Luna. It is peacefully located in the less busy part of General Luna along with the expensive and luxurious resorts that you can find along Malinao Road. But the downside it was hard to get transportation from the resort, but it’s a little near the crowded General Luna.
Sandy Feet has different gorgeous and spacious villas. The garden is beautifully laid out with different trees and flowers. They have a beachfront and a long stretch of white sand beach. You’ll also enjoy hanging out in the hammock or just sitting in the sand and enjoying the view of turquoise water.
We also love our villa which is located near the owner’s house and the kitchen. We are near the staff whenever we need them. We also enjoyed hanging out in our very own veranda. Two villas were occupied by our group, the villa for 8-10 people and the other was a couple villa which was near the beachfront.
The staff where helpful in getting a tricycle for transportation. We waited for the 2 tricycles to arrive as we went to Cloud 9. It is one of the busiest places in Siargao.
Cloud 9 is the gateway for surfing in Siargao. It is famous for the waves, boardwalk and the surfing tower. There are different surfing instructors along with Cloud 9.
From the entrance of the boardwalk, you can also enjoy a nearby beach. There’s also a rocky shore near the beach. Within the vicinity are different restaurants.
You can also enjoy a stunning view of the sunset from Cloud 9.
