WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE BENT PALM TREE IN SIARGAO
My friends and I arrived at the bent palm tree in Siargao at around 7am and we had this epic spot all to ourselves with no other tourists in sight. A few friendly locals came to greet us and offered their small wooden boats to us to go for a paddle up the river. We paid a local man 150 pesos to use the boat for an hour to get some photos. Jake took the bush track to the base of the bent palm tree in Siargao and swung from the rope multiple times while I was standing back on the road to get the shot.
The river beneath the bent palm tree in Siargao is around 2 meters deep so it’s safe enough to swing and jump without having to worry about hitting the bottom. A group of local kids were showing off their backflips and excited to play with us on the palm tree rope swing in Siargao, which is their everyday playground.
