Travelling to Siargao
Although there are various ways to go to and from Siargao, we found the easiest and fastest way is to fly directly to Siargao from Cebu airport.
• The flight duration was 1h 5m long.
• A ferry from Cebu to Siargao would take you about 1 to 9 hours (not ideal for someone who gets seasick).
Once arriving, we took a tuk-tuk to General Luna. It's about an hour's drive from the Airport and thanks to my fabulous negotiating skills, it cost us 500PHP (9,80$). As a couple, we like to go about doing our own thing in our own time, so we rented a scooter for the duration of our stay. The cost of our scooter rental was around 450PHP (8,82$) per day.
Where to Stay
General Luna was hands down the best area to stay. Accommodation is easy to find and with hundreds of options, whether you booked in advanced for luxury or simply backpacking.
The main street around Cloud 9 area is filled with stores, restaurants, and bars.
