Dakô, Guyam, and Naked Islands in Siargao


ISLANDS referred to are Dakô, Guyam and Naked, not only Naked. Just in case you’re wondering if there are a lot of Naked Islands. Especially you with a green mind.

Island Hopping in Siargao

The boat cost P2,500 for whole day with the three islands mentioned as destinations. You need to bring your own food (especially lunch if it’s a whole day island hopping).

Naked Island

is usually the first destination. Just like Camiguin’s White Island, it doesn’t have any plants or trees (though there are some patches of grass). It is barren and just a white sand bar that gets smaller during high tide.

It’s great to just lay down on the sand and enjoy the sun, the sand, and the waves. That is, if you don’t care about getting sunburnt. The first time I was here, I got to see a shooting of Trip na Trip and consequently had a cameo appearance, albeit just waving around like dorks. :P

Dakô Island

siargao's dako islandthe best place to beach bum – coconuts + great beach = pure bliss!

is the biggest among the three islands mentioned. It has a lot of coconuts and according to my friend, has the sweetest tasting coconut in the whole of Philippines! In fact, she consumed 6 of them in one sitting! And I’m not exaggerating!

This is where we beach bummed after lunch, and stayed for about two hours. There were some cottages on the beach but we didn’t stay in any of them as there was, as expected, rental. We chose to stay under the shades of the coconut trees instead, and it was way cooler. Although midday, we still managed to swim and enjoy the white and fine sand of this Island. It was our goal anyway to get tan as much as possible, and flaunt to friends back home that I got my tan in Dakô, Siargao Island.

Guyam Island

is last in the itinerary, and is the rocky, cute island. There are trees and a single cottage in the middle. Its size is about four basketball fields placed side-by-side.

You can ask around the locals or resorts where you can hire a banka to get you to these islands. It’s better to hire the locals instead from the resorts themselves because it’s more expensive.

Alternatively, you can island hop by just kayaking. If you have the endurance, then why not? The waves are actually calm and the depth of the water shallow for the most part as these near the mainland Siargao. There’s actually nothing to worry about as the waves break further from the waters you’d paddle. Hahaha…
