How do I get to Siargao?

For international guests, the Mactan International Airport at Cebu City is the best port of entry to the Philippines because flights to Siargao fly directly from Cebu City. You can book with Cebu Pacific and fly directly to Sayak Airport at Siargao island. We can arrange your transfer from Sayak Airport for 300 PHP per passenger.
