As a self confessed beach lover, our third day in Siargao satisfied the beach lover in me! We did the three-island tour, namely: Naked Island, Daku Island and Guyam Island. The good thing about these three Islands is they are near to each other ( 15-20 mins boat ride) and they are also near General Luna, where our resort was located.

Naked Island

No, it is not named because tourists here need to go naked. Naked Island is a beautiful sand bar located in the middle of the sea, and just a short boat ride from General Luna Port. It’s called Naked Island since there are no structures, trees or grass – only pure white sand. Seeing Naked Island reminded me of the sand bar back in Camiguin, although this is just much smaller.

Compared to the sand bar in Camiguin, its beach is much more clean and clear. Aside from swimming, you can also relax in the sand and takes tons of pictures- everywhere is photography worthy.

Daku Island

Up next on the list is Daku Island, just a short boat ride from Naked Island. The Island has small cottages which you can rent and the locals there offers paluto, so make sure to bring delicious food and they will cook it for you, at an affordable price.

Our delicious lunch! Thanks to the Paluto Service 🙂

Cottages available for rent

The coconut trees here are really photography worthy, especially the beach. It’s just quite hard to swim since there’s a current, but there is a long rope which you can hold on to.

My struggling face to stay afloat because of the current! Lmao

Despite the current, we still had a good swim and the beach is very clear! The whole place is clean too and if you want relaxation, you will definitely enjoy it here. No booming speakers, no karaokes, just the sound of the waves you’ll hear.

Guyam Island

Our last stop for the day: Guyam Island, a small island located near Daku Island. We didn’t swim here because unfortunately, we got there during low tide and the sand is dried up already. Well, it’s okay since we’re quite tired from swimming- we’ve already done lots of swimming in the past days! We just relaxed and chilled under the coconut trees, then did some picture taking.

Wrap up

This is our final trip in Siargao and what a way to end this trip! Each of the Island has its own distinct features- the Naked Island for its sand bar, Daku for its clear beach and coconut trees, then Guyam for its rock formations. Make sure you don’t miss this day trip once you traveled to Siargao 🙂

I’ll be making a travel guide soon and while waiting for it, you can read the previous posts of my Siargao Travel Series!
