TIPS ON FLYING THERE!
DIRECT FLIGHT TO SAYAK AIRPORT IN SIARGAO : CEBU monday & friday ( Cebu Pacific Airline ) 10:50 am
In Surigao Airport walk out of the airport and take a 10 minutes walk to Gaisano Capital Mall. Just in front of the biggest mall in Surigao is a ride (locals call it easy ride) with a sign board in front PIER / TERMINAL that will take you to the city for a fee of Php 9 and if you got in early this ride will also go to the pier where you can take the ferry boat that will take you to Siargao Island for a fee of Php 250.
Ferry boats ( Surigao Pier - Dapa Port, Siargao )
Bretphil and LQP1 - daily @ 6am
Dapa Express and Arjie2 - daily @ 10:45am
Roro Montenegro - daily @ 12nn
It's a 3 hours trip to the island. It's best to take the first trip of 6am wherein the seas is still calm. We arrive early in Dapa Port with no disturbances or any high waves in the sea and it was even raining while we're heading Siargao.
There are lots of means of transportation (jeepney, habal-habal, tricycle, private vans) that will take you to different towns in Siargao. The most known is Cloud 9 in General Luna for the best surfing spot in the whole island. You can haggle for as low as Php 60 for a habal-habal ride good for 2 pax to take you to Cloud 9 while the tricycle ( motor cab ) cheapest rate is Php 150 good for 4 pax. I can highly recommend Ocean 101 they got the best value for their resort and lots of variable rates to choose from.
