“Bucas Grande Island visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I've visited Bucas Grande Island two times via Surigao City and Siargao Island. Last February 5, I visited Bucas Grande for the 3rd time via Hayanggabon port. It's only 45 minute pumpboat ride. The call of seeing the place once again is irresistible. The main attraction of the place are the Sohoton cove, non-sting jellyfish, several small caves and lakes, crystal clear water, beautiful corals, white sand beaches and lush vegetation on craggy islands. The beauty of the place is incomparable. It is pristine. Cinnamon Resort is a family and pocket friendly place to stay.

“Amazing lagoon and still one of the less touristy place in the Philippines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

It's a 2 hour (average) boat ride, per way, from General Luna, Siargao to Sohoton lagoon. Consider the speed boat service of Romantic Beach Villas to lessen your travel time, especially if your travelling in 6 pax

“A different world! really breathtaking and imagine swimming with a schools of STINGLESS Jellyfishes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

If you happen to go to Siargao, I really really recommend you go to Sohoton! Its truly a hidden beautiful world. Its basically 2-3 hours boat ride from Gen. Luna Siargao. It's also accessible only during low tides due to the Single Entrance. Inside there are 7 islands in Sohoton. It's very easy to get lost without the guide. You'll experience swimming underwater caves and going through caves and jumping off 20-30FT. to the water! The highlight is definitely the Swimming of the Stingless Jellyfishes! The pictures i posted speak for themselves =)

“Just beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

How Thailand was long ago before the crowds, well worth it. Very basic however as they are trying to promote and maintain it with very little or no funding.
