Finding the Hidden Island Resort of Socorro



One of the most popular spots in Surigao del Norte is the Bucas Grande group of islands in the town of Socorro. Located around two hours from the mainland, Bucas Grande is home to the world-reknowned Sohoton Cove, the Cinnamon Island, and the Tojomon Lagoon where the stingless jellyfish can be found.

When in Bucas Grande, one of the spots that you shouldn’t miss is the Hidden Island Resort. Situated in a small cove hidden from where boats normally pass, the resort is a quiet piece of paradise that offers enjoyment and total relaxation. Check out my photos of this must-see gem in Bucas Grande.

Hidden from view, the resort is easy to miss without the expert knowledge of a guide or a local.

The rooms rest on the edge of the islets and face the other surrounding islands.

The well-maintained fish cages below the rooms give the resort a more exotic feel.
