Bucas Grande Island Surigao: The Wonders of Sohoton Cove & Stingless Jellyfish Sanctuary


Besides the beautiful islands that make up Siargao, Bucas Grande island, which is located in the town of Socorro, is another ideal place to visit in Surigao del Norte. Socorro is another municipality in Surigao del Norte, and it can be reached via a boat from Dapa port in Siargao.

Though it’s possible to include Bucas Grande island in your Siargao trip, doing so is a bit tricky because of the limited boat schedules and the expensive prices for a private boat ride to and from Dapa port in Siargao. In fact, this is probably the most difficult part of the Surigao del Sur/Surigao del Norte itinerary that I prepared. 😀 Here’s a guide for you though, based on our experience.

What to See in Bucas Grande – Places to Visit

The entire Bucas Grande island surprisingly offers a lot of beautiful places to explore and several activities to enjoy. Most tourists would often mistakenly interchange Bucas Grande with Sohoton Cove or the Stingless Jellyfish Sanctuary, but it is important to take note that the two places can actually be found IN Bucas Grande island.
