     Attractions 


BOAT TRIPS
The experience of seeing this region from a boat is truly breath-
taking. In addition, there are several rivers and huge sections of
mangroves that are amazingly rich areas of biodiversity and natural
beauty. You will have the chance to stop and swim whenever the mood
strikes you. These trips are a relaxing and informative way to view
the stunning beauty of Siargao Islands.


Not to be missed is a full day boat trip to the “YoHoHo” Lagoons-
Coves-Caves & Islands. An absolutely magical place, overhung by
Jungle cliffs with pitcher plants, cycads and wild orchids. This is
probably the most spectacular adventure and joy trip you will ever
have. Plenty Fresh Sea Food, (Fish, Lobster, Crabs, Clams, Jelly
Fish - Sea Urchin), Chicken, Pork, Salads and much more) together
with “All you can drink (YoHoHo Rum, Beer, Juices etc). Swim,
snorkel in pristine crystal clear water and watch the many exotic
fishes watching you.. Explore with paddle boats or kayaks the
seemingly endless labyrinths of coves mangroves and islands.
.
In front of Patrick's on the Beach are several islands. You should
pop across the lagoon to the perfect palm-fringed Guyam Island,
and/or Dako Island and its white sand beach, coral reefs and
friendly villagers, or visit Naked Island a white sand spit with
coral all around. Patrick's on the Beach can organize your boat
trips with a cooler packed with ice, soft drinks, water, beer and
delicious lunch and snacks.
About 30 minutes with Patrick’s pump-boat is the pristine island
Casulian Island with wonderful beaches and lots of shells. The 300
plus islanders are very friendly and are proud that they have
protected their exquisite coral reefs full of all types of sea life.
This island is well worth for a whole day outing with picnic on the
beach or a casual hike to the to of the top of the mountain where
you will experience a most spectacular 360° view overlooking the
many surrounding islands and cove nestled in the clear, blue and
turquoise Pacific ocean.

If you are feeling brave or foolhardy, try rocky, jungle Hanoyoy,
and see if all the talk about buried treasures and wak-waks (forest
spirits) are really true. Beyond Dako are the Islands La Janusa,
Mamon and little Antakon, with crystal clear water, coral reefs and
white sand, rolling breakers and friendly villagers. Close by is
Anajauan Island with great beaches, lots of coral reefs good for
diving and snorkeling and of course with some great surf breaks.


Up the coast, just past Pilar is Magpapungko, and its natural rock
swimming pools. Scoured clean by every tide, it is a great place for
a picnic. Beyond, you could go to Pacifico Beach, Burgos and
Alegria, all with great beaches and surf breaks.

On the west coast of Siargao are Poneas Island and Del Carmen
(formally Numancia) with its huge mangrove forests, an amazing
lagoon, pristine corals and beaches. Poneas island has a whole slew
of coral islands, jungle and limestone mountains. Del Carmen,
fringed with mangrove forest known for their famous crocodiles.

KAYAKING: (click RENTALS) You can rent a kayak or paddle boat or
row/sail boat from Patrick’s on the Beach and explore the coast line
in and around General Luna and Union or paddle across to Guyam or
Dako Island.

ISLAND TOURS by Van: You can tour the Island by renting a motorcycle
for about P600 (US$12) p day or a van for P1500 half day (US$30)
from Patrick's or take a guided tour with Patrick’s van. Or for the
budget traveler take a tour on a Habal-habal motorcycle. It is
literally, the kind of joyful coupling like when” pigs are making
bacon” - You'll see why, when you watch a full load of local
passengers on one motorbike (habal-habal) - they take about six
Filipinos but only two or three foreigners. A more comfortable way
is Patrick's organized multi-cap day trips for small or large groups
to the waterfalls, caves, beaches, surf breaks and some secrete
places where the beauty intoxicates your senses like the rock pools
in Pilar. There are few road signs, so take a compass or Patrick's
Siargao Road Map. Patrick's provides picnics with a delicious
assortment of food, drinks and snacks that will make your tour a
truly joyful experience.

ADVENTURE TOURS:
You want action - you got it at Patrick’s?! You can be away from it
all or if you want company stay with the friendly people in villages
that can only be reached by boat. No doubt, you will have the time
of your life. How about going to a secluded island or beach and
overnight in a tent or a primitive island cottage. Simply rent a
kayak, paddle boat or use our pump-boat and have the adventure of
your life. To make it a “luxury adventure” Patrick’s will provide
coolers with drinks and delicious food. Don’t forget a bottle of
YoHoHo rum that keeps you smiling all night no matter where you are.

SURFING: It’s addictive - waves - waves - everywhere! Patrick’s
has a great team of surfers to teach you this fabulous sport and who
take you to the right wave just for you. Nettie our surfing queen
enjoys nothing more when she takes you to a surfing trip you will
never forget.

DIVING & SNORKELLING
There's plenty to see above and under the clear waters in and around
Siargao Islands (fish, corals, sea snakes, etc, but no big sharks
unless you go out far in depth of the Pacific). Plenty of reefs to
snorkel around Guyam and Dako Islands right in front of Patrick's
(you can just drift with the current along the drop-off). Around
Pansukian, the coral reefs are great, (even better at night time)
and you can explore reefs in front of Tuason Point (but please not
under the break itself). Many, many good snorkeling places like all
around La Janosa and Mamon Island, Casulian Island and about
everywhere.

Patrick’s offers first class professional Diving. It is still very
virgin when it comes to diving. Patrick’s has identified over twenty
real good diving spots. But there are many more as we only have
explored 5 to 10% of the waters around Siargao. We constantly
discover new amazing diving spots. A huge underwater cave with four
to five separate entrances was recently discovered under the first
rock islands in front of Tuason, and the Blue Cathedral just off
Caridad, north of Pilar. Underwater visibility for photography is
outstanding. Snorkeling and diving gear is available at Patrick's.
The YoHoHo Lagoons, Coves Caves and Islands have some fabulous
diving spots as well and of course great snorkeling.

FISHING
Deep-sea fishing is top notch here. The sailfish and blue marlin
season, really hums from March to early May, when the big fish
(sailfish, marlin, MaiMai) cruise the deep water only a mile or two
out of Patrick’s Resort. But you could fish for coral trout, and
other reef fish anytime as well as large deep sea snappers. You can
join Patrick's local fisherman for a one day or even a two day/one
night fishing adventure to take you out to the Payao, a floating
fish attractor about five miles beyond Guyam, and troll for bolis
(skipjack) or Barilis(yellow fin tuna). You can catch Tanguigue
(Spanish mackerel), huge Pacific Tuna, and Morang (dolphin fish). In
the lagoon, you can get Bayo (Long toms) - they're fun to catch but
a little too bony to eat.


SWIMMING & WATER SPORTS:
Except at low tide swimming anywhere it's safe. Enjoy at Patrick's
on the Beach silky clear ocean at high tide or at dawn or dusk, when
the water is freshest, or at night when the moon is out and the
water is phosphorescent. A natural swimming pool at Patricks beach
let you enjoy swimming at any time including at low tide. On many of
the surrounding islands like Guyam, Dako and Casulian Island you can
swim always at any tide. At Patrick’s we have all kind of water
sports from Skim boarding tp tow-able fun sport.


CAVING: There is a huge cave at Consuelo, with stalactites,
stalagmites, rock crystals, piles of bat guano, a million bats and
even a huge python, but you'll have to be fit to get there. There's
another at Malinao, on the way to Union. You may discover some caves
no man has set foot in as yet.


JUNGLES: Siargao is one of the only islands in the Philippines where
tarsiers (small lemurs or bush babies, extinct almost anywhere else)
are still common. See Monitor Lizards six feet long, Hornbills,
Parrots, Yellow and Black Lorikeets, Kingfishers, and other birds
nobody yet knows the names of.




COCKFIGHTING: Filipino cocks are quite small, but you will often see
a GL man proudly stroking his cock in the street. Cockfights are on
Sundays, about 1pm, out of town. It's a great day out, if you're not
a vegetarian. If you can understand the betting, win a little bit,
but not too much - it's the local's only chance to make a bit extra,
so don't beat the bank. Tip - bet on and watch for the owner's T
shirt, not the bird - after a bit of rumpus, both contestants look
tattered and patchy.


SITTING & LIMIN' AROUND: Probably the most popular active sport in
General Luna, it's remarkably relaxing, restorative and healthful.
From Patrick's Beach Bar & Restaurant overlooking Guyam and Dako
Islands you can watch the fishermen from dawn to dusk, the clouds
and the waves in the day or the moon at night. It's up to you if you
just sit and think or just sit. The best hangout by far is Patrick's
Beach Bar & Restaurant where you can get spoiled with the best
cocktail blends: "Beach Streakier”, Surf breaker, Sun Chaser,
Mermaid's Lover and the Habal-Habal Splash. Don't forget to try
YoHoHo Mango Rum by far the best Rum you ever tasted made on Siargao
Island. At night you can meet lots of friendly locals at Patrick's
Roadside Bar, Barbeque and Karaoke. That's the boardwalk of GL where
you will get to know the people. Check out Patrick's bulletin board
that has all the latest information on all the action in and around
Siargao Island.

GL people are very friendly and hospitable, sometimes a little shy.
Smile and you'll get a radiant smile back. The girls are very
beautiful and very charming, but well behaved. Fishermen often
picnic by the beach or on Guyam, and may invite you for a shot of
Tanduay rum, Kulafu medicinal wine, tuba coconut wine or pa-oroi
strong nipa wine. Beware, they are more intoxicating than they seem.
Try kinilaw, fresh fish steeped in vinegar, lemon juice, chili,
ginger and onions, refreshing, spicy and delicious. They might offer
iro, dog stew, which is worth trying (once), litson (roast pig) or
kanding (roast goat), worth trying anytime. Get a lad to climb a
tree for fresh butong, coconut juice straight from the nut.

SPA & MASSAGES: Give yourself a special treat and allow your stress
to melt away. Simply lay back, close your eyes and let the magic
fingers of our massage therapists help you rejuvenate, relax and
revitalize with a one hour total body massage. Choose from an
extensive selection of treatments: massage, facial, manicure,
pedicure all available at a very small fee starting at P100 only.
Nobody at Patrick’s will ever hassle you what to do simply ask
Nettie, Andreas or Elizabeth and they will organize whatever your
wishes are.

DINING: There are hardly any restaurants on the island and the
choice of food is limited but things have been improving a lot.
Thanks to Patrick’s on the Beach who offers a tremendous selection
of international and local delicacies. One of Patrick’s guest a
German Doctor who visited Siargao in 1982 said - “Now being in
Siargao is truly like living in paradise with those fantastic
choices of food and wonderful drinks served at Patrick’s.” Just look
at the daily menu. It’s food at it’s finest.

NIGHTLIFE/DISCOS: Yes there are quite a few Karaoke and Discos.
Although there is no professional hooker scene in GL, and nobody
wants one; however, you may find girls in some of the Karaoke and
Discos who offer a little bit more than just a good conversation. In
April the boardwalk or also called “Lovers Lane” was opened
right along the pier in General Luna. A great hang-out with plenty
Karaoke and snack bars where lots of visitors and locals meet and
exchange all their good and bad gossip.

FUN, SPORT & GAMES: Basketball is very popular and the locals are
happy to challenge your skills. You will find pool tables everywhere
and some of the local fellows are quite good at it. Here at
Patrick’s we have plenty choices: Volley Ball, Badminton, , Darts,
Beach Tennis, and many other in and indoor and outdoor games.
(Activities/Rentals click here)

Patrick’s is breaking ground to build a several international
Shuffle Boards, a Mini Golf & Aqua Golf Drive Range. Also on the
planning board is the construction of a Mountain Top Golf Course on
Casulian Island only 30 minutes by boat from Patrick’s beach.

WILDLIFE WATCHING: Plenty to see on land, on and below the sea - at
night and during the day. Unfortunately the Philippines are not
known for good conservation but maybe you can make a difference when
they see you watching their beautiful nature and wildlife.

HIKING: There is hiking trails everywhere. Visit small villages,
explore Coconut plantations and farms, and climb the lush Mountains
with an amazing fauna of all kind of

SHOPPING: Siargao was only discovered a couple of years ago and life
there is still like one hundred years ago. There is not much
exciting stuff to buy but it is changing for the better as more
tourists discover and visit this jewel of the Philippines. You will
find some unique products at Patrick’s gift shop and you may find
some local made stuff as you travel around this beautiful island.

COMMUNICATIONS: You probably came to get away from it all at the
edge of the world, but we have cell phones serviced by Smart and
Globe. Surprise - Surprise Patrick's on the Beach has the only
Internet Café on the island - excellent web-surfing, almost as fast
as DSL. As of July there will be wireless internet and you will be
able to surf the net right in your cottage. The internet is open
from early morning until midnight or even beyond. You can meet a lot
of beautiful local girls there chatting on the net with their
friends from around the world. Maybe you will become the next chat
partner or even more. Do I hear wedding bells?!
