3 ways you can volunteer on your next Siargao trip

Add more value to your itinerary on the island for a cause

Join beach clean-ups

Join Kermit Surf (@kermit) and Gwapitos (@gwapitos) for island tours to pick up trash at Daku and Naked islands twice a month. The beach clean-up activity includes boat transfers and meals. Message either group ahead of your trip to confirm the schedule and ensure your slot. fb.com/kermitsiargao; fb.com/gwapitosofficial7

Clean and surf on Saturdays and Sundays with The Sun Crew at Pilar, Pacifico and Alegria or meet the Grom Nation at Burgos and General Luna. Proceeds from their tours, surf lessons and board rentals go towards educational programs aimed towards helping local women and children. fb.com/thesuncrew; IG: @thesuncrew
