Daku island has a lot to offer even though this only an island we stopped by to have lunch. You will wish to stay here longer because of its white sand, powdery, unspoiled beach. There are huts with a capacity of more or less 10 people that you can rent for you to relax. There are stores that sell fresh... More

It should stay a secret, please go to boracay... :) Seriously, Its a small island with a stunning white sand beach outside of General Luna on Siargao Island. There are different ways to reach it, most comfortable one is to fly in from Cebu and take a Van. At the Port of GL you will find your best offer for... More

If you surf, want to learn, just love the ocean. If you haven't gone here,. You didn't visit sieargao. Before you go, go to the market and buy a big fish, after your surfing, go to the island and they grill it for you. Just a short trip from the main island,.. Well worth it!

Dako is a really nice island where you can surf, chill, sip buko's and buy fresh fish (which they grill for you). It's just a really nice island to relax an afternoon!

This island was part of our itinerary during our island hopping. (Btw the island hopping cost us php1300 already back and forth trip) This was our second stop during the trip. We arrived by noon time, thus we had our lunch and our surfing lessons here. Prior departure from General Luna, we were advised to buy fresh fish and uncooked... More

This place is bliss. Usually part of a 3 island hopping trip that includes Guyam and Naked island. Take your board as there is often a surf break off Daku that runs parallel to the beach. Any hotel you stay in can organise a boat for you

Daku Island is one of my favorite beach here in Philippines. It's not like boracay or elndio that have a lot of tourists. So you'll enjoy staying here more. The water is so clean and the view is perfect. So good to for sunbathing :)
