“Cloud 9 is the wave everyone comes to surf. Often called "Crowd 9." This wave is a right-hander that handles anything from 1 to 3.5 meters. it can be heavy when it's big. Good at higher tides Try the islands offshore as well. Rock Island and Stimpy's. Rock Island is a right that handles pretty big surf and it's counterpart, Stimpy's, is a left from the facing island. You have to surf both waves. Good at low to medium tides, but still ok at higher tides.”

“Daku Island is part of the three-island day trip. Naked island, Daku and one other. You will enjoy lunch during your day as well. Not much to do on the excursion as the coral is dead, especially around naked island where the local fishermen have dynamited the reef to bits. Good for a day though.”

“If you take a day off from surfing, then an excursion is in order. Hit Mapugunkpo at low tide to experience the swimming holes in the reef. Overcrowded and overrated, it is still something else to do.”

“This destination has beautiful lagoons and karsts formations. You won’t regret going once you see and experience the natural beauty of the island. Jump off a cliff into the cerulean waters, and don’t miss out on swimming with stingless jellyfish.”

Beach
“The Magpupungko Rock Pool is no named because of its host of beautiful rock formations surrounding a turquoise-tinged natural pool. Be sure to take as many photos of the picturesque views before going for a swim. The rock formations encircling the pool also make for natural diving boards. Jump off a cliff as many times as you want for an adrenaline rush. There are many drivers/guides that will take you to this attraction or do it yourself and rent a motorcycle.”

“Other than riding the Cloud 9 waves, one of the activities you can do while in Siargao is island hopping. Guyam Island is part of the group of islands you’ll visit which also include Naked and Daku. Guyam Island may be small, but its picturesque beachscape, shallow waters, and tropical paradise appeal more than make up for it. Spend hours reading, lazing on the beach, or having a picnic on the island while taking a break from surfing.”

“Another diversion from surfing if you get bored. It has the feel of the 'tourist machine." You have to follow very specific instructions, pay for your boat ride, SUP rental, kayak rental, etc. You have a limited amount of time to spend there and then you must leave for the next set of groups coming. OK for some, cheesy for others. Depends on your travel experience.”
