Discover the best things to do in Siargao so you can make the most of one of the best islands in the world on your next visit.

Guyam Island

One of the top things to do in Siargao aside from surfing is hopping from one island to another. If you’re joining an island-hopping adventure, Guyam Island is, most likely, included on your itinerary. It has a small area but is packed with white, powdery sand and towering pine trees, making it a perfect place to relax and do nothing. For swimmers, do note that Guyam has a rocky side often met with strong currents. Best to stay away from this area and enjoy its sandy portion instead.
