Find us on Google+ Love Mindanao: Experiencing Siargao Island in Mindanao

Experiencing Siargao Island in Mindanao






Visiting Siargao is one of the dream trips that I had wished  for long years now. Reading from magazines, the waves of Siargao really intimidated me as I have no intention to go on head collision with these giant waves. And besides, I have no clue if I have a place in this island paradise knowing that I am not a surfing enthusiast until I discover my inner passion for this water sport.


Getting There

  1. Coming from Surigao City: From the airport there are multi-cabs or smaller version of jeepneys are available outside to take you to the city proper. Just ask the driver if the route will include Borromeo St. where the port is located. Fare is approximately Php 15.00. The port in Borromeo Street is at the boulevard just fronting the Tavern Hotel. Look for Dapa Express or BritPhil.
Morning schedule of the ferry is 5:00 am and 11:00am bound to Dapa Port, Siargao Island. From Siargao, the ferry leaves at 6:00am and 9:00am bound to Surigao City

  1. Coming from Butuan’s (Bancasi airport):  There is Van for Hire bound to Surigao City available outside of the airport and dispatchers would actually approach you immediately upon arrival to check your destination. The fare is Php 200.00 for a 2-3 hour travel direct to the Integrated Bus Terminal. Upon arrival, take a jeepney bound to Borromeo Street or just simply ask to drop you at the city’s port terminal bound to Siargao.
