Mabuhay Mindanao! South Destinations You Shouldn’t Miss

Often misunderstood by many as a place inhabited my notorious groups, Mindanao is a home of earliest beaches, attractive landscapes and mesmerizing waterfalls that will invite everyone to return surely. Here are just a few, to give you insights, on what Mindanao has to offer:


SIARGAO – known widely for its cloud nine waves, this place is perfect for those who love surfing. Boats are available for rent and visit three nearby islands such as the Naked Island, Daku Island, and Guyam Island. Naked Island, from its name, has nothing on it but white sand and blue waters. Daku Island from the word “daku” meaning huge, is the biggest island among the three. It has fine white sand, abundant in coconut trees and glass – like waters. Guyam island is small but is as beautiful as the other three.


CAMIGUIN – The second smallest province of the Philippines, but has several places to offer for dauntless wanderers. Camiguin’s White Island is a must – go. Fine white sand bar in the middle of an ocean with the view of its infamous Mt. Hibok – Hibok is all you need to have an excellent and unforgettable beach experience. Here you will also see parts of the history such as the sunken cemetery, a structure which survived an explosion that annihilated the province several years ago.


NORTH COTABATO – unexplored still by most, Asik – Asik Falls located in Alamada, North Cotabato is as beautiful as you could imagine. Getting to the place is part of the adventure since you still need to ride a vehicle which they call habal – habal and pass through a very rugged terrain, alternates of ascending and descending paths. Inevitably, all weariness will fade out once you see the raw beauty of the area, seeing the waters pour out of the mountain.


SOUTH COTABATO – If you desire Luzon’s Baguio and Tagaytay to the South, say no more because Lake Sebu offers you the cold weather like those of Baguio and Tagaytay. However, there are not mid rise buildings in this part of Cotabato, and that makes it different from all others. Not just a relaxing lakeside resort, but Lake Sebu also offers trekking and riding one of the Philippines’s longest zip lines.


ILIGAN – also known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls due to its more than 20 surrounding waterfalls, Iligan bears the beauty of the very popular Maria Cristina Falls which is the primary source of energy in the city and the hidden beauty of the Tinago Falls.
