Where To Stay In Siargao For All Budgets

Siargao Island has been every surfers’ dream spot for the last decade, but with a recent explosion of tourism, people are flocking to this destination for its world-class surf breaks, white sand beaches, unique activities, and overall “Bali, but in the 2000’s” feel. Since the island is so small, finding where to stay in Siargao is pretty straightforward. You can divide it into the main area of General Luna, home of the world-class surf break, Cloud 9, and Pacifico, a quiet village in the North. Basically, everyone is booking their stays in General Luna for its stunning luxury resorts and convenience for hot spots on the island. While you’re more than likely going to book your stay in General Luna, I know that some people want a more laid back, local experience, and so I have included options for both General Luna and Pacifico. This includes spaces for all budgets and not just the extremely boujie resorts, so you’ll see properties of all kinds that are bound to suit your needs and have you booking instantly since they are so jaw-dropping (just look at The Triangle Siargao *heart eyes*).

Knowing the right area to stay in can make or break your trip, so I have compared the pros and cons and provided small descriptions to help you get a clear picture of what to expect! I have also provided a budget breakdown so that you can set your own budget and look at properties that can accommodate you rather than filtering through a large list. So sit back, brew a cup o’ joe, and get to accommodation hunting! Also, if you find the perfect space on Airbnb, make sure you use this sign-up link to receive $40 USD off your first stay!

Choosing Where To Stay In Siargao

So there are two main areas that people stay in on Siargao Island, and they can dictate the entirety of your trip if you don’t book the best one for your specific interests. The two main areas of interest are known as Pacifico and General Luna. They both have their pros and cons, which made it hard for me to choose between the two, but once you get a little grasp of what each has to offer, you’ll be able to cross one off and get to hunting for your perfect stay.

Stay In General Luna If…

You want poppin’ nightlife, good wi-fi, surfing, healthful restaurants, and to be in the hot spot of Siargao.

Stay In Pacifico If…

You want a quiet, local surfing experience with few crowds and more authentic local life.


 

General Luna

surfing | nightlife | hip cafes | best accommodation

General Luna is the life of the party. The (classy) Koh Phangan of Siargao. The older sister that goes clubbing on Saturday, but wakes up on Sunday morning for a morning surf break and acai bowl. Its laid back atmosphere, and dozens of cafes and stays have made General Luna the top choice to stay when people are booking in Siargao. So while most of the tourism concentrates into one area, there are plenty of unique getaways where you’ll be able to find a silent slice of paradise.

 

Pros

Best Cafes

Hub For Popular Attractions

Best Accommodation

Great Night Life

Cons

Can Be Viewed As ‘Touristy’


Pacifico

local immersion | fewer crowds | surf hub | central location

Pacifico is the laid back, zen destination for quiet surf resorts and local immersion. While there aren’t as many hip cafes here, there are many places to grab a great bite after a morning on the water. It is a gateway for the northern excursions of Siargao like TakTak Falls, and a secret island hopping near Santa Monica, which makes it the perfect central location for Siargao, despite it being 45 minutes from the hub of General Luna. I stayed in Pacifico and I enjoyed the silence and ‘late night bonfire’ vibe of the entire area.

 

Pros

Laid Back

Central Location

White Sand Beaches

Local Culture & Food

Cons

Away From General Hub

45-60 Minute Drive From General Luna

No Service / Wifi In Most Parts

Sparse Restaurants
