Siargao, Boracay of Caraga
Siargao is not only famous as the surfing destination of the Philippines, it also boasted of a long stretch of white sand beaches and crystal clear water.
Going to Siargao may take several hours but setting foot to the so called gem of Mindanao, everything is worthwhile.
From Manila it will take 1 and a half hour flight to reach Butuan City and three hours bus ride to Surigao City.
From Surigao City, one can choose between taking the two-hour fast craft ride to Dapa (Siargao's main port) or by 4 hour ferry travel (RORO) from the port of Lipata to Dapa.
Once in Dapa, you'll have a 45-minute tricycle ride to reach Siargao, General Luna for only 30 pesos per person during off season.
