If you were pushed to name your favorite island, there’s a high chance that the question would leave you a little stumped. Perhaps you’d be tempted to go for a bigger is better mentality and opt for the largest out there: Greenland. Or maybe you’ve got a soft spot for the Brits, and would be enticed instead to choose the United Kingdom. Or, as with many of us, perhaps you’d associate an island with a tropical vacation destination, and go for a popular spot like Bali, Hawaii, or Bora-Bora.
But few of us out there would be quick to answer with… Siargao. The remote (and relatively tiny) Phillipino island is hardly a big name in the island scene. But it’s just been voted the best in the world – and we’ve got the reasons why.
