Siargao has landed on Vogue France’s list of 10 “most charming islands to make the most of the summer season,” an inclusion welcomed by the Philippine government.
The Department of Tourism said it “is elated with the inclusion of the country’s surfing capital Siargao Island in ‘The 10 islands to go on holiday this summer’ list of coveted fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue Paris.”
Jade Simon, Vogue Paris lifestyle editor, in a piece dated June 19, described Siargao as a destination that “offers soaring one-on-one with wild nature, populated more guest houses with their feet in the sand rather than five-star palaces.”
She added “Jacking Horse or Pacifico beaches are ideal for groping the waves. And for the less sporty, the natural pools allow you to splash in turquoise water.”
Siargao joined the ranks of some of the world’s best islands identified by Vogue as summer getaways that offer tourists tranquility and paradisiacal beaches.
