WHERE IS CORREGIDOR ISLAND SIARGAO

Corregidor Island is located in the south of the Philippines right next to the more popular island of Siargao.

WHERE TO BOOK A CORREGIDOR TOUR

I booked my Corregidor tour with Secret Spot Siargao Hostel. Adi, the owner of the hostel, organises Corregidor day tours with a private boat and skipper that will take you over to Corregidor Island Philippines for around 1500 pesos.

The tour includes a return boat ride to Corregidor Island, entrance fees, a guide, lunch, drinks and good times!

Alternatively, you can book a Corregidor Island Tour online in advance with Klook. This tour includes a full day of island-hopping to Corregidor Island, Naked Island, Daku Island and Guyam Island. All of this for less than $40 USD.

MY EXPERIENCE ON THE CORREGIDOR TOUR

At 10am, my friends and I jumped on our private boat that was waiting on the beach directly in front of the Secret Spot Siargao Hostel. The trip over the channel to Corregidor Island Siargao is a 45-minute journey, passing Naked Island and Hanoyoy Island.

The skipper beached the boat on Corregidor Beach, a glistening white sand coastline complemented by a palm tree forest, turquoise water and a colorful reef. I was in disbelief of how incredibly beautiful this island is before I even stepped foot off the boat.

The first few hours on the Corregidor Island Tour were spent snorkeling in the crystal clear waters, climbing palm trees and enjoying a freshly cooked barbeque lunch and cold beers.

The local residents of Corregidor Island Siargao offer cooking services on the island, so we handed over our food and they prepared a feast for us all. The cost for the cooks is included in the Corregidor tour price.

CORREGIDOR ISLAND TOUR – CONTINUED

After lunch, we decided to hike to the other side of the island, passing by a palm tree rainforest and a small local village in the center of the island.

There were kids playing basketball, teenagers singing karaoke from their homes and elderly people watering their gardens. The beautifully slow pace of life on this island is something else!

We continued along a pebbly beach and up a large grass hill, and at the top was one of the most spectacular landscapes I have ever seen.

Coconut palm trees, rolling hills, long grass, herds of water buffaloes and secluded beaches. I literally felt like I was dreaming… My friends and I were in awe and speechless of what laid in front of our eyes!

See the images below to get an idea of what I am talking about.

CORREGIDOR ISLAND SIARGAO – CONTINUED

There is so much exploring to do on Corregidor Island Siargao and many awesome spots for photo opportunities.

I sent up my DJI Mavic Pro Drone to get some aerial photos and videos which was the best idea I had all day. Corregidor Island from the air had me in disbelief that this place was even real!

The day was coming to an end so we made our way back to the starting point of our hike, had another quick swim in the ocean and jumped on board our boat for departure back to Siargao.
