    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Going to 3 islands in SIargao. Renting a boat for P1500 for you to reach 3 islands. But you can make arrangement with the boatman. AFter the 3 islands we went straight to Sohoton Cave and did the sohoton tour and then they dropped us at Hayanggabon port to go back to Surigao.

    by barbie_sunrise Written Jan 9, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is Magpupungko Beach which is situated at Pilar Town in Siargao. This is one of the best beach ive seen in my life. Best place to visit during the low tide where you can see pools of water. You can also enjoy cliff jumping in here.

  • Dune Buggy Tour

    by mikel.lee Written Feb 8, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    General Luna now has Dune Buggy tours and rentals for those who dont like driving motorbikes. The tour lasted a little over two hours and there are 8 buggies and a lead UTV with a guide in it. The cost of the tour was 1400 peso for two people. The rental is where you go on your own was 300 pesos per hr, 3 hr minimum which is way cheaper than Boracay at 1500 per hour. They are located in front of Kawili Resort on the main road to Cloud 9

    Caob lagoon, same as yo ho ho islands.

    by reklund Written Nov 19, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Reminds a bit of sohoton but way easier to get to. Caob lagoon is located at the municipality of Del Carmen, about 10k past the airport. Its a hidden lagoon inside a small island that is only reachable with boat, and best during high tide. Inside the lagoon there is a huge cobo (philippino rest house) built that is for anyone to use, for a small fee of course. A perfect place to hang out for a day, cook some food, snorkel and so on.

    Surfing

    by reklund Written Nov 19, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Siargao is mostly known for its superb surfing. From the fast break cloud 9 to the more mellow longboard wave at daku island, this is the perfect place for experianced and beginners alike. Every year billabong hosts the siargao international surf competition here, usually starts off in middle september and is not to be missed. The best surf here is between sep-dec but during the rain season jan-march the many tropical storms off the coast deliver huge swell so even then the waves are good.

    Caribou tour

    by reklund Written Nov 19, 2011

    We just had a great day riding caribou at the back hills of general luna here on siargao. Got the idea when a friend's birthday came up and wanted to do something different. We hired 5 caribou with driver, two people on each, a wagon filled with beet and off we went. So far the most fun I had here on siargao.

    Tiktikan Lake

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tiktikan Lake is part of another Sohoton Tour together with Crystal Cave. Entrance fee is P10 per head. For boating, you have to pay P5. You can take the boat to the other side & be guided on foot inland. The lake is huge but we didn't stay long for the long trip back to General Luna. It's best to leave early to avoid the strong waves.

    Crystal Cave

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visiting Crystal Cave is part of another tour in Sohoton together with the Tiktikan Lake. You have to take the pumpboat during high tide to reach the shore where a path will take you to the cave. It's best to have a good hiking shoes coz the path is treacherous. Take a good flashlight coz it's pitch dark inside the cave. It's a pity that the crystal formation was darkened due to hand touches. I was a bit annoyed with the guide for taking only 1 poorly lighted flashlight with him for a group of 9 people!

    Jellyfishes

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visiting Sohoton Cove is really memorable one for me. Imagine, swimming with countless stingless jellyfishes! They will really converge around you in the water like magnet. It's eerie coz you can feel them while swimming. I got to touch & hold them in the water. What an experience! Just with those jellyfishes, the long trip is well worth it.

    Sohoton Cove

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sohoton Cove requires 2 hours of pumpboat ride from General Luna in Siargao to be able to reach it but it is really worth it. I got to jump from high places to the deep water. It's really for the adventure lovers. Especially memorable are the stingless jellyfishes which you can swim with. They will get near you in the water. Imagine swimming with multiple jellyfishes! You have to come here during low tide for the pumpboat to be able to enter the cove. You can also visit the Bucas Grande islets, Tiktikan Lake, & Crystal Cave. Really beautiful! Just be careful about the weather cause you've got to cross very deep waters.

    Guyam Island

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    Guyam Island is my least favorite of the 3-island tour. It's a small island that you can roam around in a few minutes. It is reportedly offered a 7 million pesos price tag by a foreigner but was turned down by the owner. The beachfront is just ok. It is worthy of a short visit.

    Dacu Island

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dacu Island is easily my favorite in Siargao. In my opinion, it is better than Boracay which is crowded & commercialized. I love the emerald green color of the clear pristine water. The sand is powdery white. Sunset view is perfect. This is located just across General Luna in Siargao Island. I'll never get enough of this island.

    Naked Island

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    Naked Island, as it's name suggest is devoid of anything except for the fine white sand. There are no trees around. You can roam around the island in just a couple of minutes. The place is hot with no shades to take shelter. The waves here are strong but is still perfect for swimming.

    Mamon Island

    by limledi Updated Jun 1, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mamon Island is easily one of my favorite islands near Siargao. Nearby is La Janoza island, another popular island. Between these islands are corals perfect for snorkeling. I just love the beaches here which i consider one of the best in the country. The beauty of the place is just breathtaking. You have to travel for over an hour by pumpboat from General Luna to reach this place.
