Pacifico Beach Siargao is a cruisey surf town with white sand beaches, tropical palm trees and A-class surf breaks on the north-eastern tip of Siargao Island. Make the drive away from the popular Siargao tourist hub, General Luna, and enjoy some peace and quiet among the tropical paradise of Pacifico Beach.

WHERE IS PACIFICO BEACH SIARGAO

Pacifico Beach is located on the north-eastern coastline of Siargao Island. Pacifico Beach is approximately a 1-hour drive from the main tourist hub of General Luna. Follow the Siargao Circumferential Rd and you won’t get lost.

The best way to get around Siargao Island is on a scooter. The cost for a scooter rental is around 300-400 pesos per day or for a monthly rental you’ll get a cheaper rate of 200-300 pesos per day.

Most accommodations will be more than happy to help you to organise a scooter rental for the time you plan to spend on Siargao Island.

ON THE WAY TO PACIFICO BEACH SIARGAO

In my opinion, you don’t want to go directly to Pacifico Beach Siargao as there are so many awesome locations worth stopping at along the way.

If you leave early enough from General Luna you can make a big adventure day out of it. See the list below for a one-day Siargao itinerary of things to do and see on the way to Pacifico Beach:

WHAT TO EXPECT AT PACIFICO BEACH SIARGAO

The village at Pacifico Beach is a sleepy surf town nestled beneath a coconut palm tree rainforest. This small coastal town in Siargao’s north is the perfect spot to surf, eat, sleep and repeat!

Pacifico Beach is one of the best Siargao surf spots on the island. Many surfers flock here to surf the A-class reef breaks just a short paddle out from the shoreline.

There are a small handful of surf breaks at Pacifico Beach Siargao, all within a couple of minutes walk from each other. Take your pick of left-hand or right-hand waves that are best surfed on mid to low tides.

My friends and I spent 2 days and 1 night at Pacifico Beach Siargao and here’s what we got up to:

  • Surfed the long left-hand point break at Pacifico Beach
  • Explored the pristine white sand beach
  • Swam in the turquoise water in the bay
  • Hammock chills between the coconut palm trees
  • Sunset at Pacifico Beach Resort
  • Ate the BEST local food at Lebron James & Dwayne Wade restaurant
