Siargao among best surf spots

Siargao n Surigao del Norte was ranked the eighth best surf spot in the world, according to the travel news website of the Cable News Network (CNN).  The list was compiled by CNNGo writer and "avid surfer" Jade Bremmer.

"This dramatic and powerful reef break, which crashes onto shallow razor-sharp coral, offers right and left death rides to those who dare. Those who do will experience a slice of paradise, or magic mushroom-like hallucinations, as the wave wraps over them like a Cornish pasty-shaped cocoon of water. Don't slip, or your skin and bones will be ripped to shreds by the ocean bed," Mr. Bremmer said about Siargao's famous "Cloud Nine".

Puerto Galera (which means Galleon Port) is one of the most popular beach resorts in the Philippines. A marine reserve, it is endowed with coves, fine sandy beaches and shallow coral reefs ideal for snorkeling.

Puerto Galera Port

The Department of Tourism (DOT) is working with the Maritime Industry Authority (Marina) and the Puerto Galera local government for the best way to ease boat congestion at the tourist spot.  Tourism Secretary Alberto Lim said that docking of boats anywhere on the beach has become a concern because it disturbs guests and endangers those wading or swimming by the beach.  That is why they are studying what will work best given the local conditions in Puerto Galera.
