Magpupungko Beach, Siargao Island

4.3
#1 of 13 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.

Where to stay in Siargao Island

Given the popularity of Siargao Island, the abundant selection of accommodations comes as no surprise. Most places to stay lie on the appropriately named Tourism Road, which hugs the island's southeast coast. Staying at one of the beach resorts, villas, mid-range hotels, or basic guesthouses here offers excellent access to the Cloud 9 surfing area, as well as the island's tourist-driven nightlife. Those looking for a quieter getaway can find a few more isolated options farther up the island's east coast.
