There is a place where you can dive from the top of a 10-foot high rock. Surprisingly, there are ponds that vary in depth from 1-foot to 15 feet.

Having been to the other beautiful beaches of Siargao, we thought Magpupungko Beach was just another white sand beach which was not worth the long trip from our hotel. We noticed people were mingling around a rocky ridge so we decided to take a closer...More

This was actually one of my highlight on Siargao Island. The one of the few must-see attractions. Super nice scenery, great beach and the rock pools are just an experience you have to make. If you want to visit, make sure to check the tides,...More
