“Fun dip at low tide”
Review of Magpupungko Beach

This is about an hour or so from General Luna. We rode a tricycle but many rent motorcycles to go here. You have to time your visit because the pool can only be seen during low tide (around 10:30am).

There were many stalls selling souvenirs but shower areas were not available at the time.

It is best to wear aqua socks with rubber sole because there is a short trek to the pool and there are some sharp rocks at the bed of the pool.

The water was nice and cool but the place was quite crowded. You can also jump off one of the cliff jumping areas.

Incredible place, but make sure you go at the right time. It is best at low tide, as this is the only time that the rock pools are exposed. There are so many rock pools that you can swim in. Crystal clear water and some are quite deep. There are quite a few people there, but there are lots of places to swim. Bring your snorkel and you will get to see lots of beautiful that get trapped in the pools as the tide goes out. Entrance fee is only 50pesos! There is lots of shade and great food available for very reasonable prices. We will go again when we return to Siargao.

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.

We went on a Saturday afternoon & the place was packed!! I couldn't appreciate the natural beauty of the place let alone get a decent picture with no photobombers. It was more like a market!! Pee in the ocean as there is no toilet!! The ladies toilets are both locked. Only two changing rooms (without toilets) are available and one of them was flooded with urine! Yuck! I almost threw up!. No running water either from the faucet in the sink. Wonder where the entrance fees go. Certainly not in the maintenance of the toilets

This place amazed me. It has a wide shoreline. And the natural pool is so cool. The best time to visit is during low tide. This is the best beach for me!
