The “Surfing capital of the Philippines”, also known in the international scene as a popular destination for surfing.
A tear drop shaped island in the Philippine sea situated 196 kilometers southeast of Tacloban in the province of Surigao del Norte.
Siargao has excellent surfing conditions particularly during the southwest “habagat” monsoon from August to November, when the prevailing wind is offshore. It is greatly influenced by the winds and currents coming uninterrupted from the Pacific Ocean, intensified by the Mindanao current running westward through the Siargao Strait.
Siargao is also home to the largest mangrove forest reserves in Mindanao, Del Carmen. Long stretches of wetland indicate a potential for commercial seaweed propagation.
Cloud 9 is the most well- known surfing spots on the Island, having a reputation for thick, hollow tubes. It is in this right- breaking reef wave that the site for the annual Siargao Cup is held, a domestic and international surfing competition, sponsored by the government of Surigao del Norte.
