Porto Santo Drone--Polarpro popula post5 TIPS FOR DRONE PHOTOGRAPHER

Well, let’s be honest anywhere on the island is beautiful and would be a great place to start flying.

Guyam Island

Sunrise in Alegria

Cabugao Sunset Spot

Coconut Field

Straight Coconut Street

Del Carmen Mangrove

San Isidro Mangrove

Surfers @ Salvation

Island hopping : You can book a boat from General Luna and go on a tour for the day that will take you to Guyam Island, Daku Island and Naked Island. You should pay 1500 PHP for a boat up to 8 PAX. Leave as early as possible if you don’t want the island to be too crowded.

Getting some action : Filming surfers can be more complicated as some spots need to be reached by boat. You can still easily fly the drone from the shore in place like Tangbo and Salvation to name a few.

Sunset : I didn’t get so lucky with the weather around dusk in Siargao but with great conditions, sunsets can be beautiful. The reflection on the water making it perfect. Del Carmen and Cabugao‘s wharfs are just at the edge of the mangroves and the local boats will give that little extra touch you need for a scenic sequence.

West Coast Beach at Sunrise: The north coastline between Alegria and Pacifico offer a pristine water and beautiful beach. The beach next to Dedon resort and the ones near General Luna offers a beautiful contrast with the ocean, the sand, and the trees.

Coconut tree: I suppose anywhere on the island is good. However, the road before Maasin has I think the biggest concentration of palm tree I have ever seen. After going down the hill there is also a perfectly straight line for any moped video.

Mangrove: The mangroves are for example located in Del Carmen and San Isidro. Really easy to reach. Unfortunately, it was raining every time we drove near San Isidro but both places offer a scenic landscape and have a great reflection of the clouds when the conditions are right.

I just went flying daily with my DJI Mavic Pro + 3 batteries, the weather can change suddenly and if your drone is pretty far you might not always have the time to bring it back before the rain comes, be careful. Our set of Polarpro filters – Cinema Series – helped us once again to capture the best shots, the glass has a high light transmission and a low refractive index.
