Cloud 9 and the early resorts on Siargao, both have helped to shape the island into what it is today – the Surf Capital of the Philippines and one of the most relaxing islands you can imagine – but not only for surfers!
There are plenty of other world-class waves waiting to be surfed, such as Stimpy’s, Rock Island or Pacifico – all super long waves that produce amazing barrels left and right.
Siargao isn’t all just about the surf. The beaches here are breathtaking and many tiny islands surround Siargao, like Dako Island or the famous Naked Island, which literally consists of nothing but sand. Snorkeling is a must-do around those islands. Another must see is the unique and beautiful Magpupungko Pool in Pilar. You can relax on the beaches and rock pools; explore the widespread mangrove reserves and inland forest, discovering hidden magical Lagoons and caves. Surf. Explore. Relax
The home of the #8 wave on the planet, Cloud 9, a perfect right that barrels faster than Pipeline, only steps away from the lookout tower.
But Cloud 9 is not the only amazing wave you will find here. Cloud 9 is a perfect right barrel but a relatively short ride. Siargao offers countless other world-class breaks – left, right and super long. Stimpy’s for example is a goofy dream. A very long left that also barrels, located at a shallow reef deeper in the ocean, accessible by boat. Right next to it – Rock island – an even longer right. We will not publish every spot on Siargao on our website, but visit us on Siargao and ask the friendly locals for our other (more than 15) mind-blowing breaks.
Siargao offers a wide range of accommodations from budget beds in hostels to resorts with spa and everything else you need to relax. You can choose to stay right in front of Cloud 9 or nearby, or book a place in the north of the island and surf uncrowded breaks instead. Some of the resorts offer surfboard and even motorbike rentals.

Philippine Airlines usually fly daily from Manila to the nearby mainland Surigao City and you can book online. It can be a tight connection to make a ferry departing Surigao City to Siargao island so if you miss the boat you will have to stay overnight in Surigao and we can help with recommending a Hotel.
There is also the overnight large passenger boat option from Cebu to Surigao City with Cokaliong Shipping Lines. The ferry usually departs Cebu daily and a private cabin can be booked in advance.
