I think Dako is the best among the 3 islands. The sand is nice and it is just nice and I do not know how to put it in words. There are huts for rental and you can buy food from the wet market in General Luna and get them to cook for you for a fee. You will see... More

This is an amazing Island with a beautiful sandy beach, with turquoise blue water. A dream. Hope it will always stay a public beach.

It was different than any other island I'd ever been to. Waves were pretty big, sand was white. We passed by surfers and enjoyed watching them from afar.

The beach is probably the best around Siargao Island. Totally for you! There is even a great and easy surf wave dependening on the wind direction and swell. WE had a barbecue packed with us (the food) and set a fire on the beach for the lunch. It was just perfect! Nothing negative about this trip!

I liked the island because you can asked someone to cook your food. Nice white sand & beautiful. Well maintained by the owners. Nice people on the island.

Just loved the sandy beach and clear cool waters! The island is large enough that you can enjoy privacy even with a few dwellers on the island. There are huts on the island for rent. We went snorkelling around the island and saw fish. There is a coral reef that is about 15 min away by boat ride if you... More
