HIDDEN CLIFF JUMPING SPOT SIARGAO: ULTIMATE GUIDE 2021

Hidden Cliff Jump Siargao

Siargao might be known for its world class surf, but there’s plenty of other adventure to be had that doesn’t involve getting on a board. We ventured up north with our local friend who showed us this awesome hidden cliff jumping spot in Siargao that most people, tourists and locals alike, have never been to. Keep reading to find out where this sick cliff jump is!

HOW TO GET TO THE HIDDEN CLIFF JUMPING SPOT IN SIARGAO

The best way to get around Siargao is by motorbike. There are rentals everywhere but if you’re looking for a reliable and wel maintained bike, Fat Lips have scooters starting at $8 a day or XRMs for $7, including 2 helmets. Their motorbikes also come with surfboard racks for those of you who do want to catch some waves.

The hidden cliff jumping spot in Siargao is at the northern tip of the island in the town of Santa Monica, about 1 and a half hours from General Luna. The fastest way to get there is along the west coast of the island, through Dapa and Del Carmen. Just follow our Google Maps pin above to the Danjug Cave Nature Park. Don’t worry, the hidden cliff jumping spot in Siargao isn’t part of some big tourist attraction, in fact most people don’t even realise it’s there because they’re too busy at the Nature Park.

We didn’t actually know about the Danjug Cave Nature Park and just followed our friend’s directions to a side road leading to the beach. We left our car in a parking area just before we reached the beach and walked the rest of the way. You may not have to do this if you follow the map all the way to the Nature Park, but we’ve included it just in case!

Road leading to the cliff jump

Once you’re at the beach, head left and you’ll run into the stream heading out into the sea. Unlike most beaches around General Luna, this beach is so low key and peaceful. That alone is a good enough reason to visit. After the stream, keep following the coastline through the trees and across the rocks until you reach the cliff jumping spot. You’ll know it when you see it!

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE HIDDEN CLIFF JUMPING SPOT IN SIARGAO

We have to be completely honest here… we didn’t actually jump. Carson would have, but Zowie cracked the whip when she saw how gnarly the waves were. When the water is being sucked out, it’s a beautiful blue fairy pool. When the waves come crashing in you’re at high risk of drowning or being minced against the rocks. But, we’ve seen photos and videos of other people jumping without any problems, it just wasn’t the best day for it when we visited.

Waves crashing against the cliff

Zowie scrambled all over the rocks so we could get photos from every angle. The rocks aren’t slippery, but the waves can get very close so keep an eye out for the big ones.

Aside from trying not to get knocked off the rocks and swept off to sea, we also sent the drone up for a different perspective and it was even more beautiful from above. This island is known for its abundance of coconut trees, and the hidden cliff jumping spot in Siargao is no different.

Most places in Siargao are better seen from above, which is why we recommend having a drone for your trip. If you don’t already have one, we recommend the DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

We had the best time exploring this hidden cliff jumping spot in Siargao, despite not being able to jump at the time. It’s well worth the trip up north, even just for the secluded and untouched beach.
