Enjoy the Sunset at Naked Island in Siargao

Naked Island Sunset

Looking for the best view of the sunset in Siargao? By default, most would recommend Guyam Island — the last stop on our Tri-Island Tour.

But did you know that Naked Island also has beautiful, unobstructed view of it? As sunset chasers, we’d guess you’d really want to check it out for yourselves. For starters, you might want to see the photos below, taken around 5 pm in Naked Island.

Just a tip: because the island doesn’t have any shade –that’s why it’s called “naked” in the first place — we suggest you go there when the sun’s heat begins to mellow. That’s about quarter to 5 pm including the travel time it takes from Daku Island.

Siargao Tour Packages: 3 Reasons Why it Pays to Book Your Tour Early

Siargao text written on the sand

Siargao Tour Packages  make planning your trip to Siargao so much easier.

Some of our previous guests, however, took planning for granted and suddenly contacted us to join in one of our tours…at the last minute.

While we try our best to accommodate and help them, it still causes stress on their part when they realize that the tours start early, or they thought they can combine whichever destination they want (which doesn’t work that way). Or they realize that they need a much much cheaper tour.

Here are some other reasons why it pays to book tour Siargao tour package before your flight to Siargao.

Avoid Stress on Your Budget

A family of four once called us at past 8 am asking if they can join our Sohoton + Tri-Island Tour. The problem is that our group — and most of the group tours in Siargao — already leave for Sohoton at 7 am because the boat ride is going to be at least 2 hours.

They didn’t want to pay for a private tour, so they had to wait the next day for our next group tour. I hope they were able to find a way to join a tour at 8am. Otherwise, they had wasted a day which they could have spent touring around Siargao.

Although our Siargao tour packages are convenient, we still recommend booking your tour early to avoid the kind of stress the family of 4 had, especially if you don’t have the budget to get a private tour. 

Avoid Complicated Planning

Our Siargao tour packages are already planned out to maximize your day. We have arranged it in such as way that you’ll save more time and money.

Most important, you’ll be able to focus more on enjoying your tour, rather than spending on hours of complicated planning. 

For example, some guests would ask if they can have Sugba Lagoon and Sohoton in one day. Our straightforward answer is no. 

It’s just not ideal, it’s more expensive, and the time it takes to transfer between these destinations will eat up the time you would rather enjoy spending on the nearby spots.

Although, our Siargao tour packages are available every day, we still need at least one day to ensure that we have planned for the number of guests we accommodate because we also account for transportation and food for everyone. 

No Need to Carry Cash Around

As you have paid for your tour in advance, you don’t need to worry about running out of cash in the island, especially that ATM machines are not always available.

You carry around less valuables while you are out there surfing or swimming. You’ll have less stress worrying if your cash is still there. This is not to scare you out but the island, unlike before, now has so many visitors so it pays to be extra careful.

Siargao Tour Package 2019: Tri-Island Tour Sample Itinerary

siargao island hopping tour packages website header image

Siargao Tour Package 2019 for Tri-Island hopping is by far the most requested package on this website.

The reason is probably the islands’ popularity, simplicity of the tour, or the ease of access.

For one, it is not as far as Sugba Lagoon or Sohoton as our tours start in General Luna.

Two, it is also the cheapest tour package, by the way.

A lot of the emails and chat messages we receive ask for an itinerary so we decided to put together this post.

Well, to be honest, as our tri-island tour package is private, you will have complete control of your itinerary.

We will only be there to guide and assist you the whole day.

Take photos, perhaps, if you like.

We don’t mind being your Instagram boyfriend for the day — if there’s none yet. 🙂

Nonetheless, here’s how a typical itinerary for our Siargao Tour Package 2019 looks like.

Sample Itinerary*

  • 9:00am – meet-up at General Luna Market
  • 9:00am to 9:30am – en route to Naked Island
  • 9:30am to 11:00am – do whatever you plan on doing at Naked Island. Just don’t throw trash.
  • 11:00am to 11:30am – en route to Daku Island
  • 11:30am to 12:00pm – walk from port to Daku Island cottages
  • 12:00pm – cook lunch
  • 12:30 – lunch
  • 1:00pm to 3:00pm – do whatever you plan on doing at Daku Island
  • 3:00pm to 3:30pm – en route to Guyam Island
  • 3:30 to 5:00pm – do your stuff. watch sunset. get a beer or ten.
  • 5:00pm to 5:30pm – en route to General Luna Market

Again, this is just a sample itinerary. As our tours are private, you have total control of your own time. No need to wait for other groups that you are not with.

For us, that’s the main benefit of going on a private tour. 🙂

One Last Thing

Before you even plan out for your itinerary, make sure you book your accommodation first. A lot of visitors come to us looking for accommodations just 2 weeks before their trip to Siargao, and it’s a stressful exercise, knowing that Siargao accommodations run out fast.
