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.
