THE ISLAND (OLD)
There are more than 7,000 islands in the Philippine archipelago, but there’s nowhere quite like Siargao. A nature lover’s dream, this laid-back isle, home to the epic Cloud 9 barreling wave, perches at the edge of Asia, its eastern coast just a few kilometers shy of the Philippine Deep, one of the deepest spots on earth’s surface.
Little fishing villages, lazy beach towns and an international community of surfers and expats, mostly clustered around Cloud 9. That’s island life on Siargao. Easy-going. In harmony with nature. In harmony with the neighbors. Always up for some fun—or a little nap.
