There is no doubt that everyone is dreaming of their own getaway once restrictions are lifted and it is deemed safe to travel again. With the Philippines being home to more than 7,000 islands, it’s no surprise that some of the world’s most beautiful beach destinations can be found in our country. And while Boracay, Palawan, and Cebu are popular destinations, Siargao has been quietly making a name for itself, with Time Magazine naming it as one of the World’s Greatest Places in 2021.
Once an undiscovered hideaway for surfing enthusiasts, Siargao is now a growing tourist destination that has retained its quintessential island charm. It has become a home to amazing Airbnb Hosts who go the extra mile to provide you with tips and tricks on how to live like a local, whether you’re planning to stay for the weekend or for a couple of months.
