Situated on the tiny island of Siargao, in the south-east of the Philippines, is the beautiful Sagana Resort. Situated right in front of the infamous right-hander and surrounded by golden beaches and lush garden, the resort is set in paradise.
Sagana resort consists of 6 individual cottages with self-contained bathrooms and caters for a maximum of 20 guests. Four cottages are fan cooled and 2 have air conditioning. The individual cottages all vary in size and are set in lush, tropical gardens. Bed linen, towels and mosquito nets are provided and cottages are cleaned daily. Each cottage has it's own large veranda and hammock supplied.
Sagana resort has the only swimming pool on the island and is available for in-house guests only. There is a shallow children's pool attached to the main salt water pool. The restaurant also contains a billiard table and ping pong table, as well as TV with DVD and satellite cable TV. Chess, backgammon and cards, and a variety of books are also available. Sagana resort offers more than perfect waves. Day trips to secluded islands can be arranged, or else hop on a habal-habal (motorbike) and travel around the island exploring.
Scuba diving, kayaking and fishing trips (bring your own rod) are also available.
The best months for surf in this area are August through to the beginning of November. This is when they receive the most typhoon swells and the best winds. During May, June and July, the surf is generally smaller. BUT when it's on the conditions are ideal. A bit of a gamble at this time of year though. From December to April the winds are often strong and cross shore, BUT the swell is always pretty big and some surfers prefer this time of year.
The best wave is "Cloud 9" which is directly out the front (2 minute paddle). This right-hander is a barrel machine!
There are 3 other waves (rights and left) within 5 minutes of the resort, and within 10 minutes by boat is "Stimpies" and "Rock Island" (USD$3pp) - two epic breaks!
The resort also has access to several other breaks within an hour's drive by car or boat.
Flights from Manila to Siargao Island depart Monday and Wednesdays and are via Surigao.
