I was with my hostel mates and visited Magpupungko as we went all the way around the island. Rockpools are good to swim in. I suggest walking further than the first rock pool you see as there are many others behind the big rock (where...More

A very popular place to go to due to the rock pool. It takes a while to get here from the general luna- about an hour. There's an entrance fee and if you're unlucky the place will be really really busy. The beach isn't anything...More

... is the best description. Standard Beach, sand not too white, plastics dirt, warm water with nothing alive to be seen. Good place to rest for a while and to try the swimming holes nearby. Just one of the hundreds of beaches on the island.

Two or three I think. However, it's about 8 to 9 kilometers away away from Magpupungko Beach. During our trip there, I have not seen any establishments within a 4 kilometer radius. I hope this helps.
