In previous issues of Escape From America Magazine, Tanja Bulatovic has taken us on a journey to find an Island Paradise.
In this issue, her quest takes us to the Philippine Island of Siargao.
With a landmass of approximately 437 kilometers, the island is one of many that make up the Province of Surigao del Norte. To clarify, the island sits on the Pacific Ocean side of Mindanao – at the northeastern tip of the Caraga Region.
In comparison to Boracay, Siargao is almost savage, with an abundance of shallow warm waters protected by reefs and beaches that are untouched and unspoiled by development.
Home to the largest mangrove forest in the Philippines, environmentally speaking, the place is a miracle in itself. On the east coast of the island, you’ll find hectares of fish-nursery mangroves where you won’t see another human being for hours, maybe even days.
