DIY SIARGAO ISLAND HOPPING: Naked, Daku, and Guyam Island

DIY Siargao Island Hopping – When visiting the tear-drop shaped island, a Siargao Island Hopping tour is one of few must-do activities we recommend here. With just a short boat ride off the coast of General Luna, spend half-day or the entire day island hopping in three of the most popular tropical islands of Siargao known as Naked, Daku, and Guyam Island. And if you have a bigger budget, you might want to add these beautiful islands before you start your tour namely: Corregidor Island, Mam-on Island, and Sohoton Island.

Earlier this year in January, before the coronavirus pandemic hit, we went to Siargao Island for the second time. And compare to our first visit, we have been blessed with good weather almost the entire stay on the island.

We maximize our time in Siargao, making sure we will not miss the places we never visited.

We explored popular tourist attractions north of the island by motorcycle, rented a motor-bangka to Sugba Lagoon, Pamomoan island, Kawhagan Beach, experience the best of nightlife on the island, and of course island hopping to the popular tri-islands, Sohoton and Corregidor island with fellow local tourist we made friends.
