Naked Island Siargao

Pansukian Island is often called by locals as Naked Island Siargao just to give guests an idea of what to expect when they get there. This comprehensive guide will take you through the untouched beauty of this small sandbar located right infront of General Luna, Surigao del Norte and part of the Siargao group of islands. Unlike other islands adorned with dense trees, Naked Island offers a unique allure with its pure, white sand and the embracing clear blue waters of the Pacific.

Its name, “Naked”, isn’t just about its bare nature but it’s also about the genuine, unfiltered experiences it promises. Here, you won’t find the distractions, but you’re presented with an untouched horizon, gentle waves, the vast sky, and the soft , powdery sand beneath your feet.

An island renowned for its "naked" white sand dune as its distinctive feature compared to Daku and Guyam. It's popular for photography both on the ground as well as in the air via a drone and can be visited by availing an island hopping package inclusive of the other islands.Although we arrived during a period of rainy weather, it was still worth a visit to see it in person.

Simple sandbar that's the perfect stop for photos and drone shots. Sand was finer than the other islands in the Tri island tour.

Very sunny day!! Crowded at that time, but still enough space to run around and fly your drone.

The sea views in Siargao are truly stunning. Today I participated in a local island hopping trip and went out to sea with a group of people, enjoying the blue sky, white sandy beach and charming sea view. We were very lucky to have great weather which made the whole trip even better.Apart from maybe getting a little tan, there's really nothing to worry about. On such a beautiful seaside, everything seems so relaxed and happy. This experience cannot be described in words. Only by experiencing it personally can you feel the beauty.
Everyone is wearing clothes ㅠㅠ

This place is awesome, but make sure to be as early as you can. We had the place all to ourselves for about 30-40 minutes. We were the first ones there!

Nice sandbank, but overrated as an island. Perhaps suitable as a kitchen island?

Nice place! Wife got stung with some jellyfish while out snorkeling but got good help from a guide boat with vinegar and some other tourists had anti-histamines so maybe extra luck! Definitely recommend doing the three islands tour! Bring your own refreshments though!

Exactly a naked island because there’s nothing in it. It’s an island with no trees, plants or any structure. There also aren’t any vendors or comfort room. It’s a very small island so you can basically see everything if you stand in the center. You can swim in the water.
