Siargao Island

Once upon a time this region was relatively unknown, only being visited by day tripping locals and more adventurous surfers. Today Siargao is considered a place that every serious surfer should visit. This is mainly due to the legend of Cloud 9 and American surf photographer John Callahan, who published the first feature and hundreds of photos through a variety of magazines in the early 90's.

The perfect hollow nature of Cloud 9 has help put it on the international surfing map and is now the site of the annual Siargao Cup, a domestic and international surfing competition.

Cloud 9 isn't the only wave in the region. There are several other quality waves nearby on Siargao and offshore islands. Some of these spots are becoming more well-known like Pacifico and Rock Island; however there are still some hidden gems out there just waiting to be ridden.

There is a reason why Siargao is known as The Surfing Capital of the Philippines!

Siargao isn't all just about the surf. It also offers a large abundance of natural attractions for the non-surfers. You can relax on the beaches and rock pools; explore the widespread mangrove reserves and inland forest, discovering hidden magical waterfalls and caves.

The Cloud 9 region has a reputation for being a relatively cheap destination with many accommodation, restaurant and bar option available. If you're thinking of travelling to Siargao, Cloud 9 is the best place to make base camp.
