Sohoton Lagoon, Siargao Island

4.5
#2 of 7 in Nature in Siargao Island
Swim in the surreal, blue Sohoton Lagoon and explore the caves around it. To enter the lagoon, which forms part of a national park, you need to first go through the adjoining cove. Snorkel in the water to admire the coral and rock formations, which can be easily seen thanks to the lagoon's crystal clear water. Around the lagoon, you can explore the caves and seven islets, while adrenalin junkies can jump from a cliff into the lagoon. You might notice large groups of jellyfish gathering in certain parts of the lagoon, but don't worry--they don't sting.

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.
