One day we decided to do a day trip driving around the island with the scooter. Not around the whole island but up north. We started at 7am (we always wake up really early on this side of the world to not miss the sunlight since it gets dark at 6pm already) and drove towards Pacifico Beach with several stops. We passed by the Maasin river which you shouldn’t miss if you go, we unfortunately didn’t take any photos but its a river with the famous bended palm tree with a swing!While driving through the road with all the coconut trees surrounding us we saw some smoke coming through the forest and onto the road, it was beautiful so we stopped to take some photos by an old little tree house and Klemens climbed up a tree. After shooting we passed all the places where we stopped on the way back home to shoot in the afternoon, so let’s go all the way to the final destination of the road trip and go into detail of every place on the way back.After driving for about 1 hour we arrived to Pacifico beach, a very long beautiful beach with white sand and incredibly clear water, I was really amazed by this beach and tried to capture it in photos but it was impossible to show how beautiful it was. It was not only the view, it was also the energy and feeling I got while being there. There were rocks in the water and big waves so it wasn’t the typical “perfect” beach but it was still so beautiful. If we had more time in Siargao I would have liked to go there more times but since it was 1hour away with constant driving we only went once. One of the best things about Pacifico Beach was Lolo’s tacos! We saw a sign on the way there and got incredibly happy to find tacos in the Philippines, if you don’t know already, tacos is my favourite food! Lolo’s tacos is a very small and colourful little kiosk that serves Mexican food and yummy smoothies, definitely go if you’re there.After chilling on the beach for some hours the sun was about to go down so we drove back towards General Luna (our base in Siargao) and passed by a beautiful little village where we met a lot of kids who wouldn’t stop talking to us, they were so cute, and as I’ve said before, the Philippines are so good in speaking English! We continued driving and ended up back on the coconut tree road with trees surrounding everywhere where we stopped to take some photos.Finally we arrived to the final destination which was the famous view point where you see millions of coconut trees and watched the sunset! It was incredibly beautiful and surprisingly not so many people there as you would expect at such a beautiful place during sunset. And to add some information, these are not palm tree plantations, there are no palm oil plantations in Siargao. These are all natural grown coconut trees.
We stayed there until it got completely black and drove back in the darkness to General Luna where we had a cozy dinner and went through or photos :) I love this road trip, we drove a lot on the scooter and the bums did hurt a bit (haha) but it was so beautiful to watch the views, see the locals, talk to them, we had delicious tacos and chilled on the beach!
