The pristine island of Siargao has been included in Time Magazine's list of the "world's greatest places" for 2021.
Situated within Surigao del Norte, the teardrop-shaped island of Siargao has been dubbed as the Philippines' surfing capital.
"While destinations such as Boracay, Cebu and Palawan nailed the mass market, the teardrop-shaped island off the coast of Mindanao until recently had been best known to a dedicated band of surfers lured by consistent waves," said Time Magazine writer Duncan Forgan.
"But the secret is out, and new spots are popping up on the island, including the beachfront Inara Siargao Resort, an intimate five-suite property that can be booked on Instagram. Just before COVID-19 shutdowns, Siargao got additional cell towers to improve data connectivity, which will be a boon to tourism when it reopens to vaccinated international travellers," he added.
Also included in the influential Time Magazine's list are destinations such as Cannes in France, Lake Kivu in Rwanda, Khao Yai National Park in Thailand, Gyeongju in South Korea, Hokkaido in Japan, Costa Rica, Dubai, and Gothenburg in Sweden.
