FREE Masterclass: MAKE MONEY BLOGGING! Reserve your spot!

Pacifico Beach Siargao is a cruisey surf town with white sand beaches, tropical palm trees, and world-class surf breaks on the northeastern tip of Siargao Island.

I highly recommend making the drive away from the popular tourist hub, General Luna, and enjoying some peace and quiet in this tropical paradise in Siargao’s north.

I have put together this complete guide to Pacifico Beach including how to get there, where to stay and what to expect when you arrive.

WHERE IS PACIFICO BEACH SIARGAO?

Pacifico Beach is located on the north-eastern coastline of Siargao Island.

It’s approximately a 1-hour drive from the main tourist hub of General Luna to reach Pacifico and if you follow the Siargao Circumferential Rd, I guarantee you won’t get lost.

HOW TO GET HERE

One of the most common ways to get here is on a scooter. The cost for a scooter rental in General Luna is around 300-400 pesos per day, or for a monthly rental, you’ll get a cheaper rate of around 200-300 pesos per day.

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

ON THE WAY TO PACIFICO SIARGAO

In my opinion, you don’t want to go directly to Pacifico as there are a few 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 see and do along the way.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT PACIFICO BEACH SIARGAO

A sleepy surf town nestled beneath a coconut palm tree rainforest is ultimately what you can expect when you arrive. This small coastal town in Siargao’s north is the perfect place 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 world-class reef breaks just a short paddle out from the shoreline.

There are a small handful of surf breaks 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 exploring the area and here’s what we got up to:

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

WHAT TO PACK FOR THE PHILIPPINES

When visiting the Philippines, here is a list of items I highly recommend bringing with you;

  • Sunscreen – the Philippines sun is very strong, so make sure to pack some high-quality sunscreen.
  • Quick-dry travel towel – the most compact and lightweight towel for traveling.
  • Reusable water bottle – stay hydrated by bringing along a reusable water bottle.
  • Backpack – The Nomatic 30L Travel Pack is the ultimate backpack for everyday adventures.

If you’re interested in taking awesome photos and videos on your travels, this is the camera gear that I use and recommend;

  • GoPro HERO10 – the most popular camera on the planet for action-packed adventures.
  • Canon EOS R – perfect for traveling, this is the most affordable, compact camera on the market.
  • DJI Mini 3 Pro – take your photos and videos to new heights with this user-friendly drone camera.
