DUBAI: Thinking of where to spend your annual leave? Don’t go far beyond the edge of the world.

The best place to be is right home; more accurately, Siargao, that tear-shaped island in the province of Surigao Del Norte, which have just been voted by Conde Nast Traveler readers as the best island in the world.

“The island has a population of 200,000 and isn’t overrun with tourists, making it a paradise for anyone keen for a genuine escape,” read an article from Metro, the United Kingdom’s highest-circulation tabloid.

Siargao bested Tahiti, Bora Bora, Bali, and Hawaii in the award-winning luxury and travel magazine’s rankings culled from readers across the world.

Explains Conde Nast Traveler writer Marianna Cerini: “Siargao has remained unspoiled, remote, and still relatively under the radar, despite the influx of new infrastructures in recent years.”

The hidden paradise also boasts of sumptuous local dishes made from fresh produce, stunning lagoons, secret rivers, and rock pools, said a piece by Pau Gutierrez for outoftown.blog.com; further quoting Cerini as saying: “The backdrop is only half of the spectacular picture.

“Siargao has been enchanting visitors for years because of its welcoming vibe and easy island lifestyle. A stream of cool, independent new hotels and businesses are making the island a shining example of sustainable tourism, and there’s a wealth of activities to keep you busy for days. It’s no surprise Conde Nast Traveler readers voted it the best island in Asia—but it also topped our list as the best island in the world.”
