This island is one of my favorite in the island hopping tour because we ate there, met new people, played volleyball and took awesome pictures. There's a lot of dogs too so feed them with some food if you have extra.

We stayed here shortest. More people here compared to naked because of availability of huts and trees. This is where everybody takes their picnic lunch. Still very nice. Siargao is blessed to have these islands for people who don't surf. There is a Php 100...More

Second stop after Naked Island. Sand is coarse and there isn't much to see on the island or even underwater
