Where To Stay On Siargao Island For A Dreamy Stay

(Last Updated On: 13/09/2020)

If there is one thing to know about where to stay on Siargao Island, it’s that there is no shortage of dreamlike hostels, resorts, hotels, and guesthouses for any budget. One of my favorite things about visiting Siargao was that you don’t have to spend a fortune to stay somewhere beautiful, much like the rest of the Philippines. When it comes to visiting Siargao Island, the vast majority of people base themselves in General Luna, near the famous Cloud 9 surf break. Here is where you’ll find most of the best places to stay and all those mouth-watering restaurants *drools*. However, in the shadow of those places lies a few other locations where you’ll find very few travelers and my personal favorite place to stay in Siargao, despite its location, Pacifico.

This guide for where to stay on Siargao Island is going to cover all of the areas you should consider basing yourself with the primary focus of General Luna. If you’re dreaming of the perfect stay for your travels to Siargao and other parts of the Philippines, look no further than these amazing spots. Let’s get into it, shall we?

Tips For Choosing Where To Stay In Siargao

 

If you want to immerse yourself in local culture with a quiet stay, stay in Pacifico or San Isidro.

Pacifico is a laid back, surfing destination for quiet 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.

If you want to be near most major attractions, the best nightlife, and food, stay in General Luna.

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.

If you’re in Siargao to surf, stay near Cloud 9 or consider Pacifico (considered to be the ‘North Shore’ of Siargao Island).

Cloud 9 is one of the world’s most famous surf breaks and is a huge reason why so many people originally flocked to Siargao back in the day. Now the Cloud 9 surf break is home to professionals and beginners alike as this area has become a popular spot for surf lessons. While Cloud 9 is a hotspot, it is often crowded. If you’re looking for a quieter place to surf on Siargao, Pacifico is your best bet. This is where I learned how to surf on my trip and there were a FRACTION of the people there.

Pacifico River House

✧ Aaren’s Pick ✧

This quaint little spot is a perfect, quiet hideaway if you want a secluded, peaceful stay in Pacifico. I stayed here for a few nights in Siargao and the owners truly make you feel like you’re at home here (and they make a bomb curry). This spot is right down the road from a small village and local bakery, so if you plan to cook your own meals, make sure you stock up either in that market or a larger one on the main road.

Salvacion Hills

How cool is this spot?! While it’s not in Siargao or Pacifico, it’s halfway between them in Pilar, there was no way I couldn’t have these glamping tents on this list. There isn’t any wi-fi here, but they do have an incredible mountain and sea view that is unmatched to other accommodations on Siargao. If you want a few quiet nights to step away from work or the outside world for a bit, stalk up on some groceries and head over to this breathtaking place.

Grotto Gardens

This adorable little spot reminds me of a stay you would find in Bali overlooking rice terraces, but in the Philippines overlooking lush palm forests. It’s just outside of the village of Pacifico, so you’re guaranteed a peaceful stay here. You have more than likely already guessed that there is no wi-fi here, so bring your own if you plan on needing to work or keep your family updated while you’re away.

High Tide Eco Villas

The High Tide Eco Villas in Pacifico is one of the most beautiful properties in this area. It’s walking distance from surf breaks, restaurants, and other shops which makes it the perfect spot if you love peace and quiet, while still having access to civilization.
