Things to Do in Cloud 9 Siargao Besides Surfing

Cloud 9 Siargao is only a 10 to 15-minute walk from my accommodation (I stayed in Lampara Hostel), but I wasn’t able to visit until my 4th day on the island.

It’s my first day that I was entirely alone on this trip as I did joiner tours for Sohoton Cove/Tri-Island and Sugba Lagoon/Land tour. I didn’t have any plans so I did a little food-tripping and went directly to Cloud 9 Siargao in the afternoon to take some time and reflect.

Luckily, I had an entire floor of the boardwalk to myself for an hour.

There’s an entrance fee of PHP 50, but it’s an unlimited stay so why not? Please also note that there’s a limit of 100 people (if I remember it correctly) at the boardwalk to prevent it from collapsing. I don’t think it gets that packed aside from the day of the Cloud 9 Surfing Cup.

If you want to surf, surfboard rent with an instructor will cost about PHP 300 to PHP 400. Be ready for a few cuts and bruises here and there.

I was really curious about surfing as everyone says it’s addicting. I think I’m just not ready for it yet. Maybe it can be a reason to go back, maybe not.

Anyway, I went back the next morning to watch the sunrise. I’m more of a sunset person mainly because I don’t wake up early, but it was worth it.

After that, I had my breakfast bowl at the famed Shaka Siargao. This is the view from there:

Shaka is only a few steps away from the boardwalk so it shouldn’t be hard to find. Prepare to shed about PHP 200 to PHP 300.

Cloud 9 Siargao beyond surfing…

Basically, aside from surfing, here are the things you can do at (or near) Cloud 9 Siargao:

  • Conquer your fear of heights and walk all the way through the 300-meter boardwalk.
  • Watch the sunrise/sunset.
  • Have a me-time at the viewing deck – read, write, paint, reflect.
  • Swim, of course.
  • Eat at Shaka Siargao.

I don’t think you’ll need a tour for Cloud 9 Siargao because it’s just along Tourism Road. A habal-habal ride going there will only cost you PHP 20 (solo) if you’re around General Luna.
