Surigao Escapade – Cinnamon Island

Cinnamon Island in Bucas Grande , Socorro, Surigao Del Norte is managed by the Strengthened Association of Volunteers for the Environment of Sohoton (SAVE Sohoton), composed mostly of the fishermen in the area.

Our lunch during the island tour was served by them. Man, I was glad we booked through them because their food was really good. Again, this was arranged through the Dept of Tourism. (c/o Mr. Rolando Ajop – 09399047019)

Lunch at Cinnamon Island.

Sweet and Sour Lapu-Lapu. 🙂

Chicken and Pork Adobo, Grilled Isda sa Bato.

We also had Tinolang Lapu-lapu. Adobong pusit (squid) and more of the grilled isda sa bato. Everything was so fresh, we could really taste the difference from what we buy in the market.

Yes, we had seafood galore. 🙂 Yummy huh!


Cinnamon is called such because of the cinnamon trees that grow in the island. While we were there, we were also served cinnamon tea. It tasted like any other tea and smells like cinnamon, of course. lol

While having lunch, we had a very picturesque view – the white sand beach, crystal clear waters and the surrounding islands.

The owners  were there during our visit. So we had a chance to chat a little. I told them that they were so lucky to have an islet of their own. 🙂 Little did I know that I was talking to the Vice Mayor of Socorro, who happened to be the owners’ daughter.

After an hour or so of frolicking in the beach, we had to leave for the continuation of our tour of  Sohoton National Park.

Thank you again Cinnamon for a very wonderful experience. The lunch was superb! I hope that someoday, we will be able to visit you again….
