Needless to say, people here spend a lot of time in the warm, welcoming ocean. Aside from swimming, diving and snorkeling at any of the countless unspoiled, virgin reefs are favorites. And then there’s surfing. Numerous breaks of different varieties in different areas welcome surfers of every level of ability and lessons for beginners are available from a number of local operators. For the already-expert, of course, there is the challenging world famous “Cloud Nine” break at General Luna, site of an annual international competition attracting surfers from all over the globe.
Siargao can be a delight for nature lovers. Hiking, hill climbing and just beach-combing and shell collecting or wildlife watching in the rain forests can all bring their own special surprises. For even more pristine, unspoiled nature several sparsely inhabited easy to reach nearby islands such as Casulian offer quietude and natural beauty unrivaled anywhere in the world.
