One of the smaller and least known places to feature in the TIME Magazine third annual list of the World’s Greatest Places is Siargao in the Philippines.

TIME compiled the lists following nominations from its international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.
Time Magazine said:
“While destinations such as Boracay, Cebu and Palawan nailed the mass market, the teardrop-shaped island off the coast of Mindanao until recently had been best known to a dedicated band of surfers lured by consistent waves.
But the secret is out, and new spots are popping up on the island, including the beachfront Inara Siargao Resort, an intimate five-suite property that can be booked on Instagram.
Just before COVID-19 shutdowns, Siargao got additional cell towers to improve data connectivity, which will be a boon to tourism when it reopens to vaccinated international travelers.TIME Magazine
