Surigao City Island Tour

A compilation of the previously posted getaways.. 5 spots for island hopping offered by my friend's travel and tour agency, Viaje Isla Incorporated.

The destinations, island to island, as follows...
~~~~~~~
1. Buenavista Cave and Beach, Hikdop Island


Unspoiled white beach facades the way to the cave.

~~~~~~~
2. Zaragoza Tourist Park, Sibale Island


A miniature park covered with bermuda grasses and overlooking the surrounded shore of rock formations. The ambiance of the park is so relaxing; while gazing at the turquoise waters reminiscing for something, the refreshing cool sea breeze does the chilling.

~~~~~~~
3. Rock Formation, Brgy. Lisondra, Sibale Island

While passing at this site, one cant help but get his camera to capture this rock formations blackened by weather and time.

~~~~~~~
4. Cantiasay (Nonoc Island) - San Pedro (Hanigad Island) Wooden Foot Bridge


The Surigao version of the famous San Juanico bridge connecting the two neighboring islands.

~~~~~~~
5. Basul Island


The crown jewel of Surigao City island getaway that possess four faces in its every corner. As Basul means "regret" in english, one will regret for not stepping in this wonderful island.

kaka enganyo talaga ang second to the last na shot. parang tinatawag talaga ang panglan ko na pumunta na dyan. hehehe...

The Islander said...

@dong.. hahaha! mapupuntahan mo din yan. pero mag aral ka munang magsurfing para maenjoy mo ang siargao. though maganda na yung andun ka sa site, pero parang mas maganda pag kasama ka ng mga foreigners at locals na nagsusurfing din.

SURIGAO!!! I LIKE!

The Islander said...

@mikky.. my pleasure for sharing the beauty and bounty of our place. glad you liked it.


@tonyo.. not crowded and not remote. the island is visible from the city actually and vice versa. and youre right, very peaceful sya. sarap gawing bakasyunan. yung anytime e you can go back home.

The Islander said...

@docrio.. sure naman... kayang kaya mong pumunta dito. iilang pasyente lang yan, ayos na. hehe.


@dakilang islander.. haha bida eh. parang nasa mobi. hanggang ngayon di pa ko nakkabalik sa sirkulasyon.

The Islander said...

@estan.. hmm dinagat so far sa pbma shrine and loreto pa lang ako. 40% exploration pa ko sa dinagat.

but i am scheduling a trip na to one of the best nila didto. hopefully if time permits, i will invade the rest of dinagat soon.

The Islander said...

@faye.. amo men. hehe.


@frienemy.. let's see.


@lawstude.. bakit naman libre? mas sanay akong nililibre eh. hehe. kay dong nalang tayo palibre.


@ark.. never been to samal. but one of the projected activities in our mindanao umbrella organization is a capability building seminar in samal this september. i keep my fingers crossed that it will pursue.

The Islander said...

@catherine.. thank you so much. that was enough for me to keep going. glad that you enjoyed being here. pardon if i cant pay back a visit the soonest because i am kinda busy these days. but i will definitely be hanging out in your blog soon.


@alex... thank you. thank you.

wow, this ought to be featured more on Philippine tourist brochures! surigao doesn't normally get pulled as a major destination like boracay and palawan but your shots should make DOT think twice!

Is it expensive to go on a one-week holiday there?

The Islander said...

thank you.

everything here is cheap. i guess(?!?)

cause an ordinary me can afford and enjoy the simple things. surigao is in basic state so you can expect a cheap expense while youre here.

Honey May said...

hi, how do i go to san pedro-cantiasay wooden bridge from the city proper?

Would highly appreciate your response.

:D

Thanks.
