But when you already had that surf pinnacle, or your adventure-seeking self longs for something else, or you simply want to relax, what other things can you do aside from surfing? I went back to Siargao via Cebu Pacific, which is now offering direct flights between Manila and Siargao, for answers.

    The Quezon City I Didn’t Know

    What to do in Siargao Island

    Siargao, a laid-back town, has not fully succumbed to the wonders of technology just yet. There are no ATMs, no urban banks, stores open and close early, a ghostown at 7PM when residents are busy watching telenovelas, very rare jeepneys or any other type of transportation, decent restaurants are those that can be found in expensive resorts of Cloud 9, and a lot more. Given all these, what’s left to do in Siargao? Well, I came up with a pretty long list of the stuff you can do during your stay in the surfing capital of the Philippines.
