Let’s take a look at some of the best surf spots in Siargao:
Cloud 9 – this is undoubtedly the most popular Siargao surf spot in the country, which happens to be the 8th best surf spot in the world. It’s got a perfect right hand reef break. But because the ocean bed is filled with corals, Cloud 9 is usually visited by the most experienced of surfers.
Tuason’s Point – this is found right next to Cloud 9 and it also happens to be a great surf spot, where the waves are powerful and break really hard. Again, surfers who take on this spot should be careful.
Stimpy’s – another “experts only” surf spot, and this one is accessible by boat only. The wave take the form of a flawless tubing that hits shallow water.
Caridad – when in season, Caridad’s got some nice barrels that break on the left. Visit this surf spot during the east and north east swells, when the conditions are ideal.
Cemetery – this one got its name from being right in front of the General Luna Cemetery. The waves here break both left and right.
Pilar – This place is about a 1.5 hour boat ride from General Luna. It’s not always crowded, and is home to two exciting left reef breaks. The place is at its best during the North East swells.
Jacking Horse – The spot got its name from the wave that jacks at the peak, smashing into the reef. The place is best surfed between mid to high tide.
Daku Island – Getting to this island means taking a five minute boat ride from General Luna. Here you’ll get to choose from the many breaks. You won’t usually have to compete with other surfers as you would on the beaches as well.
There are many more Siargao surf spots, many of which are yet to be discovered. Siargao, after all, is not named the surfing capital of the Philippines for nothing.
