The country of the Philippines has long been recognized as one of the well-known holiday destinations in the Southeast Asia region. Many tourist destinations are popular in the Philippines and among them is Siargao or Siargao Island. As the 'surfing mecca of the Philippines,' Siargao has been famous for its Cloud 9, which is a right-breaking reef wave.
Siargao, in a similar manner to other regions around Philippines and nearby countries in the Southeast Asia region, is classified as having a tropical rainforest climate in which dry season is shorter or almost negligent whereas rainfall is normally heavy throughout the year. The hottest and driest months are usually around March and October. Therefore, it is always a peak time to come to Siargao in these months, whereas those who want to go surfing should look forward to go around August to November. Meanwhile, the off-peak season is between November to February where the climate during that season is unpredictable with high chances of rain. While accommodation and ticket prices tend to drop this time, visitors should check the weather reports before going to the town around this period.
