Naked Island

Naked Island, literally nothing on it. One would ask “is this an island or a sandbar?”. It’s still beautiful. The water surrounding the island is clear and great for swimming. If you want to snorkel, there are some decent corals the tour guide can bring you to nearby.

You probably won’t spend too much time here – there is nothing here to shield you against the sun. Make sure to slather on the sun block and bring your own shelter.

The common island hopping package includes Naked Island, Daku Island, and Guyam Island. You can make a pretty epic day out of it by including the long trip to Sohoton Cave as well. Arranging a tour is easy, because you will receive many offers as you walk around the main town of General Luna.

Dako Island

One of the finest best beaches in the Philippines is found in Dako Island, Siargao Island. The biggest among the three popular island destinations (the other two being Naked and Guyam Islands) in Gen. Luna, Siargao, “Dako” is derived from the Visayan word for “Big”.

Inhabited by only a number of families, Dako Island is so amazing with long powdery white sand and clean and cool blue waters. No wonder visitors are enticed to swim in such resort with very clean surroundings. The cool winds can induce you to sleep on the fine sand as there are only a few guests around who just happen to be island hopping. The winds in the island are pretty cool since they are those that come from the Pacific Ocean, so you expect that to be quite strong and gentle. Overnight stay in simple native huts is enjoyable and security is guaranteed. With just the moon as your source of light, spending the night on the beach with your loved one could be as romantic. Visitors are truly impressed of the beauty and serenity of the place.

Without a doubt, Dako Island is truly spectacular that you can even see your own reflection through the crystal clear water! You can have fantastic snorkeling near the surf spot and around the southern tip of the island. Surfers racing the waves are such a sight to behold. Double kayak can be rented in Siargao at an affordable price and you can kayak as long as you wish.

Guests experience cool vibe and island culture. As you walk through the village, there’s a wondrous friendly feel that you’re like stepping back in time. The place is bereft of electricity and the hustle and bustle of city life. No commercial establishments, just full of tranquility and picturesque scenery. Seaweeds are non-existent either. And the best sweet-tasting fresh coconuts are a-plenty.
