Surigao City

There are many recommended places to visit in Surigao like its many white sand beaches and spectacular islands. Yet the city proper, Surigao City, does not fall short of expectations. Head to Mabua Pebble Beach for a refreshing afternoon stroll. Take your time wandering around and stepping over the many white pebbles while gazing at the blue seas and the overlooking horizon. Located a mere 15 kilometers from the city, it is a quick getaway after a long day spent exploring the town or interacting with locals.

Surigao City also has its own Luneta Park, which not only has a relaxing ambiance to it, but also a statue of Jose Rizal, the Philippine national hero. The Battle of Surigao Strait Museum will also prove to be an interesting visit, as it talks about the Battle of Surigao Strait in the famous Battle of Leyte Gulf in 1944. Know more about Surigao’s mining history through the Surigaonon Heritage Center, which contains not only the story of their culture and people, but also an impressive collection of approximately 300 rock minerals. You can also stop by the Surigao City Hall, built in the 1950s. Find the historical marker where the Philippine flag was unfolded in Mindanao for the first time.

Other pebble beaches such as Pagkawasan and Looc can also be found nearby, as well as the Basul and Danawan Islands. After a day of exploring, have a hearty meal at the Day-Asan Floating Village. Finish the day off with a scenic drive along the Cantiasay Wooden Footbridge, a 391 meter stretch that connects the villages of Hanigad Island to Nonoc Island.
