Magpupungko Beach, Siargao Island

4.2
#1 of 15 in Outdoors in Siargao Island
Swim in natural rock formations and tidal pools at Magpupungko Beach. Take a stroll along the white sandy beach to reach stone formations, which create natural pools. At one side of the beach you'll see a turquoise pool, and as you walk a bit further around, a few more will come into sight. The first one is the deepest and the biggest, but if you want a more peaceful atmosphere, then head to the smaller pools. Bring your snorkeling gear to see different colorful fish and corals in the pools, which protect you from strong waves. Visit the pools at low tide for the best experience. Magpupungko Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Siargao Island Edition.

  • Entry fee, 100 or 150 pesos / person, and then a top of beach where pile up small restaurants and small vendors. (2) natural pools are not very large, very little fish, a lot of people (mostly Filipinos), very little shade... impossible to bathe in the sea, big waves break on the rocky plateau! The natural swimming pools must be filled with bacteria, of real culture broths! The litle (nice chairs and benches wooden worked) at the fork down to Magpupungko is great and fast service.
