"Tandag City a bustling city with a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern comforts. While you're surrounded by small-to-medium enterprises, from food establishments to boutique hotels, Tandag also offers fiestas that celebrate the culture of the city. The Diwatahan Festival, for example, is celebrated in honor of Sr. Sto. Niño with traditional Tandaganon dances and rituals. After participating in the event, cool off in the sea breeze along Tandag Boulevard, preferably at night, lined with colorful lamp posts and food stalls."

Still relatively under the radar, the capital of Surigao del Sur’s beautiful coastal views is a peek into what the rest of the province and the Caraga Region (comprised of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Sur, Surigao del Norte, and Dinagat Islands) have to offer.

Tandag Surigao del Sur

Much has been said about Caraga and Mindanao in general but don’t let the news intimidate you. Tandag appeals to visitors who want to go off the beaten track, and is a nice jump off point to your southern adventures.

How to Go

By plane

To get to Tandag, fly in from Manila or Cebu to Butuan City, Surigao City, or Davao City. From there you can hop on a van or public bus to get to Tandag. Travel time is three hours (Butuan – Tandag), 4 hours (Surigao – Tandag), or 7 hours (Davao – Tandag).

By boat/ferry

Inter-island ferries ply the Manila-Butuan or Cebu-Butuan route on a regular basis. Hop on a van or a jeep from the port to Butuan proper, where there are buses that can take you to Tandag.

By land transportation

If you’re coming from other parts of Mindanao, you can ride a bus to Tandag from Butuan, Surigao, Davao, or Bislig City.

Getting Around

Surigao del Sur has an excellent road network; enjoy the exhilarating coastal scenery on board a motorcycle. Tricycles and pedicabs are also available. Watch out for skylabs, motorcycles outfitted with extra seats and baskets so it can accommodate more passengers.

Tourist Attractions

Situated on top of a hill, the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes offers 360-degree views of Tandag. Look out and see the charming fishing community below. A walkway makes the climb convenient.

Island in Surigao del Sur

The stalactite formations within the caves of Bat Island and Linungao Island will keep explorers amazed for hours. Legend has it that since Tandag was once a port of call to a Spanish galleon, locals believe there’s a sunken galleon in the seas near these islands.

Tandag Boulevard, also known as Vicente L. Pimentel Boulevard (named after Surigao del Sur’s first governor) is where you can relax and breathe in the ocean air.

Somewhere between Tandag and Cortes is Lubcon Falls, one of the area’s pleasant surprises.

Top Things to Do

Say a prayer at the San Nicholas de Tolentino Cathedral then have a glimpse of everyday life in the area at Tandag Town Plaza.

Mabua Beach

Learn to skimboard, swim, enjoy a picnic, and soak up the sun at Mabua Beach, where families congregate during weekends.

Stroll along the famous Tandag Boulevard at night, which is best enjoyed with street food and barbecue sold along the way. Pair it with puso (rice wrapped in coconut leaves).

Coinciding with the Month of the Ocean celebrations, Tandag City’s Eco-Sports Festival is also something to look forward to. After a coastal clean-up, sports and outdoor enthusiasts can compete in the following events: Urban Adventure Race, Beach Volleyball, Skim Boarding, Frisbee, Sand Art, Dance, and Kite Flying.

Where to Eat

Café La Jara is considered as Tandag’s answer to Starbucks; enjoy a cup of coffee while reading a good book or watching people go by.
