A good place to visit in siargao but come on low tide to avoid serious injuries but dont worry theres a lot of life guards to keep you safe. Dont bother to bring snorkels because underwater is not that nice

We liked to visit the place and learned from our bike leaser that this place is closed for rehabilitation. So pls check first before you go for a road trip there.

Do you know that Siargao is not just about surfing? A few kilometers away from Gen. Luna is the Magpupungko beach. Entrance fee is Php50. When we went there last summer, it was low tide and it's best to go there on a low tide...More

Hi Dear, Magpupungko is not the best place for snorkeling. I recommend Pagbasayan Beach or Kangkangon Beach at San Benito, Surigao del Norte. This is perfect beach for such activity. Thanks.
