A Quick Travel Guide to Cagwait White Beach
Cagwait White Beach is a locals’ favorite place in Surigao del Sur. It has fine white sands and a lovely beach where families and friends can enjoy all together.
Cagwait White Beach is located in Cagwait, Surigao del Sur, around 30 kilometers from Tandag City.

From Tandag City
- Go to Tandag bus terminal and take buses bound for Butuan or Davao.

Where to Stay in Cagwait White Beach?
There are a few resorts and accommodations around the area that are not available online. I advise you to ask when you are in Cagwait white beach to be sure.
One of the common accommodations is the LGU Cagwait beach resort which is also affordable.
Ever since when I was young, we always go to Cagwait white beach to celebrate birthdays and weddings, and we even go here without any occasions at all. Cagwait white beach is a perfect place to enjoy the sand and the beach without going too far from our hometown, Tandag.
We got here last September, after our mandatory quarantine, It was a fun and quick dip but it was all worth it.

Now I badly miss the sea breeze from the beach. I’m glad that more and more businesses are getting back to the normal world we used to have. Nature is definitely something that I’d love to explore.
Thanks for the info, Ron! Badly need to go to the beach. Somehow the lockdown is now back in the city. This is a very interesting place to visit. Soon in God’s grace, I can travel again!
Since you wrote about beach, now I want to go to the beach. I just hope it’s safe to be outside and enjoy nature. I love going to the beach. I miss Bantayan Island or even the resorts in Mactan. I used to have a planned visit to Siargao but it was canceled because of the pandemic. I haven’t been to Surigao and seeing the photos on your article, I just wish I can also have the chance to visit the place someday.
ughhh ka nice diri girl. Sana all oi naka beach na! Hahaha kami diri sige lag ka drawing kay basin mag lock lock nig kalit ang borders ??
Woooow so happy for you nga naka beach naka. This place is so interesting to visit. Hope to visit the place soon ?
“It was a fun and quick dip but it was all worth it!” — SANA ALL. Hahaha. Ahh, I miss the beach and the sound of the sea as it reaches the shore and as it goes back. Looks like a lovely beach you have there, Roneth. <3

The moment I saw the photos, murag gimingaw na jud ko kaayo og beach especially nga ing-ana ka nindot. I love Surigao although wala pa jud nako nabisita ang mga places dha (the mountainous area only when I was young).
What are the flora and fauna there?
