The autonomous region of Mindanao is a little visited region in the Philippines due to ongoing conflict between Muslim militias and the Filipino government. Governments in the US, UK and other parts of Europe do not advise travel to Mindanao as there have been a number of bombings and terrorist attacks to both political leaders and civilians in recent years.
Therefore, as things remain troublesome in this beautiful region, we only have one destination guide at the moment! But it’s a corker! Siargao is a paradise island with a castaway feel, that’s a heaven for surf addicts. As far as we know, there are currently no security problems on the island and hundreds of surfers from all over the region head there each October for the annual Siargao surfing cup!
