Magpupungko Beach, Siargao Island
(4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.
