|Surfing capital of the Philippines|
There are many places of interest around Siargao beyond surfing such as mangrove tours in Del Carmen, where if lucky, you may get to observe Philippine crocodiles in the wild, Scuba diving at Blue Cathedral, Stalactite formations around Sohoton caves, millions of stingless jellyfish found at Bucas Grande Island & Big game fishing attracting anglers from across the globe... but had only enough time to focus on one activity, so naturally, I stuck to General Luna to catch me some waves.
Below are some photos taken during those small breaks from my assignment.

Below is the same day edit, post event video of the Siargao It Up event, where hundreds of volunteers from Shore It Up and the tourism department of Siargao contributed their tireless efforts in making the 'Run for the environment' campaign a huge success. Beyond the Junior Environmental scouts educational weekend for the student community of Del Carmen, volunteer divers from Shore it Up & Palaka Siargao Dive Center collected around 50kg of crown of thorns, helping preserve Siargao's underwater reefs.
