  About Siargao

 

  • The island is located in the Surigao del Norte province and is around 800 Km southeast of Manila.

  • It has a land area of approximately 437km.

  • There around 200,000 residents on the Island.

  • The main religion is Roman Catholic.

  • The locals speak Surigaonon, but a lot of people on the Island also speak good English.

  • Siargao is home to the tarsier; one of the world's smallest primates. These tiny nocturnal creatures are facing extinction so you are unlikely to see them but if you are lucky enough to spot one be careful not to disturb it, as the stress of human interaction can cause the tarsier to commit suicide. Strange but true!
