SIARGAO ISLAND


 

 

Siargao (Shar-Gow) is one of those places that puts an immediate spell on all who may visit its shores. The island has a magnetism that starts working its magic on you even before your feet touch it’s soil.

Pristine white beaches fringe an ocean thats colour has to be seen to be believed; an electric blue that cannot be described, or truly captured on camera.

With a multitude of natural attractions, from beaches to waterfalls and of course the world class waves, Siargao is finding it’s popularity exploding  with tourists arriving from all over the world all year round.

Located on the eastern side of the Visaya’s in the Philippine Sea, If you have ever wanted to go somewhere and feel like you have truly left the world behind, then Siargao is the place for you.

Some must see places while on Siargao are  Sohoton Caves, Magpupungko rock pools, Tak Tak falls and Mam-On and Dako islands. Whether you want to surf the famous Cloud 9 or merely enjoy a tropical island meditation retreat Tao de Libertad is just what you have been looking for.

Cloud 9

Cloud 9 is one of the worlds top class waves and certainly one of the best known waves in the Philippines. Surfers travel from all over the world to sample it’s perfection. The wave has a reputation for its thick, right hand barrels, but can also produce a really hollow left. The wave was discovered by surfers in the Late 80’s and is named after the popular Filipino chocolate bar.

The wave barrels if its 2 ft or 8 ft and does not pose too much of a threat to the inexperienced when it is small. When it gets above 6ft the crowds thin out drastically; leaving the lineup to the more confident and experienced surfers.

There are many, many more waves on Siargao all you have to do is know where to find them; and at Tao de Libertad we know where they are, and we also have some in our sights that may not have been surfed yet.
