Siargao Island is known for its huge waves and chill vibe. The place is probably on every surfer’s dream destination list. But for people who don’t see surfing as their “thing” or for people who want to try the sport but is too afraid to actually do it (like me lol), there are still tons of places to go and things to do around the island.
After almost an hour, we arrived in Magpupungko and pay a 50-peso entrance fee each. Then we went straight to the lagoons. Good thing we went there early because it was still low tide. It was the right moment to visit the place.
Most of the lagoons are deep so if you’re not an expert swimmer like me (lol I don’t know how to swim fyi), then avoid those and go for the shallower ones.
This huge rock formation is the reason why the place got its name according to our motorcycle driver/tour guide. The rock is called “Magpupungko” and when I asked him why, he didn’t know. He said it was what the elders called the rock formation. To be honest, it still doesn’t make sense to me haha
