THIS IS MINDANAO ARCHIPELAGO

Philippines’s surfing capital

Siargao Island is greatly influenced by the winds and currents coming uninterrupted from the Pacific Ocean, intensified by the Mindanao current running westward through the Siargao Strait. The tide of Siargao is diurnal with tidal curves typically present, especially on the east coast of the island. Siargao has excellent surfing conditions, particularly during the southwest “habagat” monsoon from August to November when the prevailing wind is offshore.

Lake Lanao is a large ancient lake in the Philippines, located in Lanao del Sur province in the country’s southern island of Mindanao. With a surface area of 340 km2, it is the largest lake in Mindanao, and the second largest lake in the Philippines and counted as one of the 17 ancient lakes in the world. The lake was formed by the tectonic-volcanic damming of a basin between two mountain ranges and the collapse of a large volcano.
