Dako Island, Siargao Island

Feel the oceanic peace at Dako Island. Dive in for a swim, go snorkeling in the clear waters that surround the island, or kick back and soak up the sun. Bring a picnic or snack to eat in a rentable bungalow, which gets you in the shade right on the beach. You can also buy fresh coconut on site from locals. Breezes from the Pacific Ocean provide cool air, and with only a few people on the island, you can experience privacy on the secluded, white, sandy shores.

  • A trip from Siargao to Daku is totally worth it! Enjoy a loud engine ride to a peaceful barely inhabited island where you can surf and enjoy the beach or hang by the cabana. If you bring fish, the locals will cook it up for you.
  • Daku Island is the biggest among the 3 islands hence the name Daku. You'd better bring fresh fish because the locals can cook it for you or whip up kinilaw for an awesome meal.
  • Awesome!
  • This island is part of island hopping posing at General Luna. Of the 3 Islands you visit is the largest and is a longer pause. How to describe it: simply heaven. White sand, blue sea and still wild. There are a few kiosks for food and drink. Fantastic!

Where to stay in Siargao Island

Given the popularity of Siargao Island, the abundant selection of accommodations comes as no surprise. Most places to stay lie on the appropriately named Tourism Road, which hugs the island's southeast coast. Staying at one of the beach resorts, villas, mid-range hotels, or basic guesthouses here offers excellent access to the Cloud 9 surfing area, as well as the island's tourist-driven nightlife. Those looking for a quieter getaway can find a few more isolated options farther up the island's east coast.
