What draws you to this place is the natural crystal clear pool. What we still didnt know that this place is more than the pool. Watching the great big waves and its great surrounding will surely leave you in awe.

Ever heard of Magpupungko Beach? It is one of the scenic swimming areas on Siargao Island in Mindanao. It is not really safe for surfing because the area is quite rocky. To reach the place, the easiest way would be to fly directly to Siargao...More
