ISLAND HOPPING IN SIARGAO – SNAPSHOTS

Island hopping should never be missed! I know there are a lot of things to do on the island, however, island hopping shouldn’t be missed.  This was our fist tour during our 5-day vacation in Siargao. Daku, Naked, and Guyam Island. These are the three beautiful islands that you’ll get to see once you sign up to the tour. It’s a short boat trip away from General Luna.

There are 2 different types of island hopping tour  to choose from. Both has the same set of islands but there’s a big difference when it comes to the price. You can get a private island hopping tour package like us, rate was 1000/head. This island hopping package includes Magpupungko Rock pools, inclusive of  environmental fees, lunch and cottage rental at Daku island. Second island hopping option is to hire a boat for 1500-2000 php where you’ll be piled up with other tourists. You take care of your own lunch, pay environmental fees and secure cottages.

The second option is a good deal if you want to save and meet other people while on a tour. This is also advisable if you’re a solo traveler. You may buy food from the town’s market which is just beside the pick up and drop off point for island hopping. Locals at Daku island can cook the food for you for a  fair fee.

Also, there are island hopping tours that would offer an island hopping + Sohoton cove tour in one day, though this would require you to always be in a hurry given that time is always at the essence. If you want to chill out and just waste your day enjoying the islands, then I would suggest getting Siargao Island hopping and Sohoton tour separately.

You may contact our island hopping tour operator:  0998-559-0527 for the updated rates.


Island Hopping 1st stop: Daku Island

Since we started the day at Magpupungko Rock Pools., it was already around 11:00 am when we started island hopping: perfect time for lunch! Our first stop was Daku island, the largest of the three islands. We stayed for about 3 hours — our longest stay out of the three islands. A perfect tropical paradise where you can enjoy the turquoise water all you want, walk under the palms, and chill out in their native cottages. Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, Philippines Daku Island, Siargao, PhilippinesDaku Island, Siargao, Philippines

 

 2nd stop: Naked Island

Our second stop was Naked island. Naked in such a way that it’s totally bare except for a bit of grass. Thanks to the birds dropping some seeds. It’s a long stretch of fine,white sand bar. There’s nothing much to do there although we love how laid back life can be while doing nothing. Start wasting your idle time by swimming through the shallow part of the ocean, drinking beer, and feeling the sand under your feet. It can get too hot as well, given that it’s totally bare so we didn’t stay long.

 3rd stop: Guyam Island

Guyam island was our last stop, this one’s a tiny island. 10 minutes is more than enough to roam around it. Like Daku island, it has full of coconut trees where you may chill out or just take a photo with. 😀 We stayed for around an hour until almost sunset before we head back to General Luna.

    Hey Kristylle, I was not even aware of Siargao islands and the photos are just too catchy. I can totally consider island hopping there. Thanks for the share!

    I haven’t been to Siargao (well, to many places in Mindanao), but it’s definitely one of the places I’d love to visit in the South, whether alone or otherwise. Those palm-fringed beaches in your photos are calling me home, though I’m absolutely in love with Washington’s cherry blossoms right now. 🙂

      Hope you can come to Siargao soon Rye. Although I agree with you, enjoy the cherry blossoms while you’re there! 🙂

    I went to Siargao just last December and I was alone (as usual). I did the island hopping tour alone, as in I got the boat to myself, lol. I honestly didn’t enjoy it that much no matter how much beautiful the islands are. I don’t know, maybe it was just one of those rare moments when I wished I was with friends just like you did. It felt lonely. But Siargao is somewhere I’d definitely return to, and I really hope I won’t be alone next time. There is still so much to see, and I won’t mind taking the same island hopping trip. Oh yeah, I haven’t taken the Sohoton tour yet so I’m definitely doing it again.

      Awe, I can only imagine how it was like, Marge. I hope your next trip, wherever it may be, you will be with someone, may it be a friend, family or someone special. 🙂

    You’re always showing us the beauty of one place through your amazing and stunning photos. I love that you have provided the name of each place so, we can identify. I haven’t been to Siargao and your photos really push me to book a ticket bound for Siargao very soon. The naked Island is something I should never missed out when I get the chance to visit Siargao. I truly love its innate beauty.

    I am totally inspired by the lovely beaches and islands of Siargaos. If I were to visit here, I would be definitely so confused that which Islands to hop on to. I hope I will have sufficient time to go to each one of these as all of them are so beautiful.

    Your caption remains true to its words, these pictures are truly inspiring and inviting enough for one to feel like exploring these islands. Personally I would prefer traveling with other people and opt for that group boat, its so much fun being with random people while traveling and also makes it cost effective

      Right, that’s the great side of travelling in a group. We did this typenof tour during our Palawan travels since it’s only me and my husband.

    Your photos really make me lust over Siargao. Can’t wait for October to come and see this for myself. I think I also commented on your 5D4N itinerary for Siargao. Awesome photos! Nice filters, too! 🙂
