When is the Siargao wet season?
The wet season in Siargao is generally December – March. Although we get a lot of wind and rain during this time we still get periods (sometimes weeks) of good weather.
When is the Siargao surf season?
For advanced surfers the most consistent months are mid September through to mid November, however we still have all levels of surfers during this time and can pick suitable spots according to conditions and ability. Mid November through to mid March is monsoon season and NE onshore winds are common, however you can still surf on the south side of the island during this time. April and May are good months with light winds and still some swell common. June – August tends to be small but very good weather with little or no wind. In summary it’s possible to surf year round in Siargao.
Local surfers on the whole are very friendly and mix well with tourists. Respect the locals and surf etiquette. Do not surf waves or conditions beyond your ability as this puts yourself and others in danger.
Do I need a visa for the Philippines?
Yes – but you are given a free 30 day visa on arrival without prior application. This can then be extended by paying around 4,000PHP for a further 30 days at any immigration office (nearest being Surigao City). Note on arrival you may need to show an onward flight ticket.
Are motorbikes available for hire at the resort?
Yes and cost 400PHP/day. You must have a bike license and experience driving bikes in Asia.
