Have you been to Siargao Island in the province of Surigao del Norte? Tagged as the “Surfing Capital of the Philippines,” Siargao Island is a tear-drop shaped island with a land area of approximately 437 square kilometers. What’s remarkable with this place is that its coastline is marked by a succession of reefs, small points and white, sandy beaches, making it a favorite destination of many tourists, both local and foreign alike. The island enjoys a somewhat special climate different from the rest of the Philippines because of its spot that faces the Pacific Ocean.
But do you know that there’s a lot more to it than those white sandy beaches? If you want to discover diverse landscapes, this is the perfect place to be. From the islets to the lagoons fringed by coral reef, from the mangroves to the waterfalls, and from the white sand beaches to the rainforest, you’ll be extremely astounded at its unique beauty. Once in Sohoton Lagoon, Siargao Island, you’ll certainly be filled with awe as you tour around this pristine emerald paradise. Truly, a must see if you are in Siargao!
The main attraction of the place are the Sohoton cove, non-sting jellyfish, several small caves and lakes, crystal clear water, beautiful corals, white sand beaches and lush vegetation on craggy islands. Its beauty is unspoiled and beyond compare. If you want to really enjoy your holiday, come to Sohoton Lagoon where there are less people but more lush vegetation and emerald waters.
Said to be the best in Mindanao and even in the Philippines by nature lovers, Sohoton Lagoon has amazing clear blue waters. It is home to the non-stinging jellyfish since the locals have reserved a jellyfish sanctuary for them to thrive.
Exploring the area during low tide, a magnificent extreme rock formation inside Sohoton Cove will surprise you to no end. But don’t make the mistake of entering into the cave where your only exit is to jump into the water which is about 2-3 stories high! But for those who don’t have fear of heights, this is like a walk in the park. On a high tide, make sure you get an unforgettable swimming experience with the jellyfish! Marvel in the beauty of these countless transparent harmless creatures as you go kayaking. You can also go underwater swimming in the caves. Or climb the safe cliffs and savor the magnificent view into the lagoon.
Exploring Sohoton Lagoon, Siargao Island is like wandering on the beauty of nature. What better way to experience the enchanting beauty of Siargao Island for a day than by making a boat trip to Sohoton!
