5 Places to Try Stand-Up Paddleboarding in the Philippines

Keep calm and paddle on.

While Siargao is known more for surfing because of its killer waves, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have spots where the water is relatively calm. This can be your fallback activity in case waves are relatively flat. There’s always a good chance of catching small to medium-size waves for beginners to learn how to surf and SUP.

Aside from the white sand beaches that surround the entire island, Siargao is blessed with natural tide pools, waterfalls and smaller islets ideal for SUP. You can even try the activity in unspoiled mangrove forests!
