Writing down the word ISLAND thrice just reminded me of how weird the word is spelled. Etymology: it comes from the Old English word īegland, which means watery land or thing on the water. There you go. Now you have useless trivia to share with your friends today!
When I went to Siargao last month (yes this post is VERY late), we dedicated a day for island hopping. We asked for help from Very Good Nice to plan it.
We planned to meet up with Wilmar and Kristyna at Harana Resort around 10AM.
We took habal-habals to the dock — just tell the driver that you’re going to Naked Island, they’ll know where to take you!
The waves come in from all directions, it was an amazing experience to be right in the middle of it. The wind was so strong, it kept blowing the sand and it felt like tiny needles hitting our legs. It was VERY painful hahaha! I’d suggest having a sarong or whatever to cover your legs while walking.
Then we sailed off to Dako Island to have lunch and to surf a little bit.
When Wilmar gave our food to the kitchen, he came back and said there were seashells being sold in case we wanted. I thought he was talking about some souvenir seashells until I saw what he meant.
Then we went surfing at Dako Island, sorry there are no photos!! To be honest, I liked Giwan better (see previous post)! Maybe we surfed too late? I don’t know, but the waves weren’t that great when we were at Dako Island.
Just in time for the sunset, we went to Guyam Island. We were super tired from surfing, but Guyam is so pretty. There’s nothing on it except for sand and trees. Perfect for swimming and watching the sunset!
If you want to do a group tour with Harana or Kermit, I think it’s about 900 pesos per person and it includes food already! Check their Facebook pages for schedules of the tours. Personally, I liked going out on our own because it felt like more of an adventure, plus, we didn’t have to be with a noisy group of people. If you’d like to make new friends, though, a group tour is best!
I think that’s the last of my Siargao posts!! OR IS IT??? Omg I don’t even know. I’m back from my Singapore trip and hoping to update regularly again :)
