Siargao is an island located at the easternmost part of the Philippines.

The Philippines’ leading carrier will be flying direct between Manila and Siargao, six times a week. For as low as PHP2,370, vacationers from the country’s capital may leave the hustle and bustle of the Metro and fly in to Siargao’s haven of cozy resorts and warm and hospital locals.
Siargao is located in Surigao del Norte in Mindanao. It is a must see surfing destination and boasts of pristine waters and tidal pools making it one of the must-visit places in the Country.
One of the most loved island attractions is Magpupungko which is a tidal pool protected by the Pacific Ocean’s reef barrier. It is a clear and quiet nature wonder where people can relax and take a dip in.
